I should never have joked about...

scratching an itch...because now I have a rash. I noticed this weird feeling on my ankles Friday morning, but didn't really think anything about it. By Friday night, it looked like this...

Oh, and my ankles are swollen. Sorry about the hairy legs. There's no way I'm shaving!!

I don't think it can be a reaction to any of my meds, because 1) I've been taking them for weeks, and 2) I've taken them so many times before this cycle. I broke down and got some hydrocortizone and calamine lotion this morning. The itch is ridiculously miserable:( I'll call my PCP in the morning to see if I can get in, and also call Dr. K to confirm that it shouldn't be the meds.

Also, we are expecting a winter storm of epic proportions. Inches of ice followed by up to a foot of snow, starting tomorrow and continuing through Wed afternoon. Reminder: beta is Wed morning. So, in addition to talking to Dr. K's nurse about the rash, I'm hoping to get the beta moved up in the event that the weather is nasty on Wed.

We just got a call from our realtor that someone wants to see our condo in the morning! Luckily, I spent some time cleaning this weekend, so it didn't take much to get it in showing shape. We'll give it another vaccuum in the AM, and then Sophie, Dan and Sierra are going to work with me. The showing is scheduled from 9-10 am.

And the BEST news is that I decided to pee on another $5 this morning and it was still positive, and darker:)

I've had major insomnia the past two nights, and finally took a benadryl last night to curb my itching ankles and help me fall asleep. I don't have much of an apetite either, and the queasiness has been setting in about 6 pm each night. I'm not complaining (YET!), it's so reassuring.

First off, CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!! I am so freaking excited to see this news this morning!

Second, call your doc and let them know about the rash. You should be able to take benedryl. It is the WEIRDEST thing, but with al of my bfps, I break out in a rash all over my hands and feet. No clue what causes it...

Good luck and be safe. SO HAPPY FOR YOU!!!

Definitely believe that which you said. Your
favorite reason seemed to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of.
I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries
that they just don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually
something that I think I would never understand.
It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.
I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!
