So.... I think I have PUPPPS (pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy) Feel free to read more about it HERE. Why do I think I have this? Well remember when I said my stomach was really itchy?? That is pretty much what PUPPPS is. It can be caused by several things, 1 being a BIG BABY! :) It is of no harm to me or baby, it's just really itchy bumps that can spread. Fortunately mine have not spread anywhere but my belly. Yes I did self diagnose from the internet, but baby girl is moving just as much as normal and I feel fine, so I'm not really thinking anything severe. I'll talk to my doctor about it on Thursday.
My feet are officially just always swollen. It's not painful or anything, just looks funny and semi embarrassing. You know it's bad when your DH just comes over and says, "Why don't you let me give you a foot massage". HAHAHAHA!
He's been really really great though. Saturday he took me out all over and we did everything I wanted to do. We even stopped at a jewelry store to research some potential "push presents" :) Then he took me to the casino where I got to play craps. We were both debating if it was socially acceptable to go to a casino at 9 months, but who really cares? What else am I supposed to do all day?
Easter dinner was really nice. Just the two of us (and William). We made a small ham, homemade scalloped potatoes, asparagus and kielbasa with red beet horseradish. I ate WAY TOO MUCH! Not to mention dessert. Edward's Salted Caramel Pie! Do yourself a favor and never eat this, because once you eat 1 slice, you can't stop!!!! It's the best store bought pie I've ever tried.
I feel like I've been in eating overdrive these past few days. In my last post I mentioned dinner with Lisa and Brian. Well we went to this place in Columbia and Lisa was raving about the ribs, so I got them. I think the ribs were almost the size of my entire side of the table. They were AMAZING AND DELICIOUS, as well as the cole slaw I might add and the spinach and artichoke dip, and the chicken enchilada rolls we got as appetizers, haha! I would highly recommend this place...http://www.thestanfordgrill.
As soon as I have time later, i'll be adding my second subscription box review. Can't wait.
