I just got back from my 38w appt. I officially have the start of PUPPS. Thankfully it hasn't spread past my lower abdomen yet, but it might. She said to try Benedryl or Cortizone creams. Does anyone else have this and find that one works better than the other? I have Cortizone at home and hopefully that will help out.
I also had an internal today (last one was at 36w). I'm hardly dilated at all out the outside and not at all on the inside. Still 50% effaced. I know it's not an indicator of labor and I don't need to be dilated at all to go into labor. But I was hoping for a little more progress with all the contractions I've been having. Oh well.
The great news is that the Mr. is allowed to catch the baby as long as everything is going well during the delivery! He just told me the other day that he was thinking about wanting to do that, and I'm glad he will have the chance to do so! :)
