Some of you may know somewhat what is going on but I figured I'd update on here.
DD has been having severe allergic reactions since mid-February. The first one was on her face. It started on a Sunday with just very bright red skin under her eyes, by Wednesday it was getting so bad her eyes were swelling shut so I took her in to the dr. They gave her a steroid rx. That made it go away but about a week later it came back, faded and came back again, but this time all over her body. Mostly behind her knees and on her stomach and chest. It never really faded all the way after that so we went back to the dr. She also had a cold in March followed by a sinus infection and ear infection. After that cleared up I took her in for bloodwork to see if they could find the cause to the reaction. I haven't gotten a response back, but I talked to a doctor friend and she suggested we go ahead and see an allergist since dd is such an abnormal case (allergies like this normally show up in the first year). This week has gotten a lot worse, the tv is almost always on b/c dd has almost no energy, she gets bursts but they are very short and then she gets really lethargic and cranky, so she watches a lot of tv to keep her calm (b/c she's also been throwing up when she cries). The reaction is also covering almost her entire body, now on her arms and back as well. Today I finally scheduled the allergist appt for the 21st, I was surprised they could see her so soon as I've always heard how busy they are. I'm hoping and praying for quick answers, this has my nerves shot and I'm having a very hard time leaving her with anyone other than dh b/c I'm afraid the reaction will suddenly get worse.
AFM, I'm feeling better finally. The baby looks good, hb is good. It has been kicking a few weeks now. I go for my next appt which will be a group appt with a bunch of other pregnant ladies on the 5th.
Sorry this was so long!
