    Stephanie, how awful about the PUPP rash. I had it in each of my pregnancies. It is really tough. Delivery really does do the trick.

    Here is what worked for me in case you find it useful. I was trying creams, cortisone, cold packs. Oatmeal didn't work. Just everything I could think of. Then I got a cold and took 2 15-30 minute showers (morning and night) to try to drain out my nose. Well, hello, something about the water removing the oils from my belly, but didn't I have a much easier time with the rash. My midwife had described it as "angry" and then it was so much better. Not gone, but bearable.

    Try that and tell me what you think. Try to scratch with your fingers over your shirt, not directly on your tummy.

    Yippee! Officially part-time at work now. Can set my own hours for the most part. Have to carry my cell phone around, but excited to have some freedom from work.

    Feeling healthy. I think I've been feeling some small contractions but nothing major and hard to tell. Honestly, I expect this little girl will hang in there for a few more weeks. She is still head down and I'm pretty sure she is facing sideways.

    Skin drives me nuts. Very cold showers help the most, also found some benadryl spray which helps on targeted areas. Stopped using the steriod cream, it wasn't helping at all.

    Sorry, not much to say the last couple days.

    I've found some good coping techniques for the itching and happy to be managing well. It still itches and keeps me up part of the night, but I'm not in tears from it anymore. Actually feel like I could manage a couple more weeks of this.

    DTD this weekend, something DH has been avoiding as I get bigger and more cumbersome. Was kind of hoping it might stimulate labor, but no luck.

    Trying hard to wear my nipple shields to deal with inverted nipples. It has been hard because of itching (yes, on my breasts and nipples too!). I think the shields are helping though. Unfortunately, one of the side affects is that they have started leaking.

    DH is really nervous about labor, probably more nervous than I am. He asked me again this weekend if I'm still serious about not wanting pain meds. I wish he understood better. I told him again that I don't want to be offered pain meds. I'm sticking to the "I'll ask for them if I want them" philosophy. Out of everyone, he would be in the most influential role to sway my decision, so I really want him to understand what I want. Unfortunately, he is nervous.

    Looking forward to an appointment on Wed. with my normal MW.

    Welcome to your lodge. Yikes I am getting to this late.
    I'm sorry about the horrible itching. I can only immagine how crazy it must make you feel.
    Proud mommy to Stephen, Sophia, and Samuel!
