PUPPP stands for “pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy.” In plain English, PUPPP is an itchy, bumpy rash — annoying but benign — that usually develops on the abdomen near the umbilical area and spreads to the thighs and extremities. It’s most common in first-time mothers and those carrying multiples. Sometimes itching can become very severe and spread to the rest of the body, but never on the face (thank goodness for small miracles). The good news: PUPPP poses no risk for your baby.
Yup. I’ve got the PUPP. Well, I’ve self-diagnosed myself anyway. People, this is awful! Well, that’s being a bit dramatic since it’s really not THAT bad….yet anyway. You watch, in a week it will probably have spread all over. It started just as a few bumps a few days ago and I chalked it up to heat rash since I get so hot when I sleep. Then it started looking more like hives or eczema and I noticed it along my hips. I knew this wasn’t just heat rash. So, what does a logical person do? Google it of course! People – do NOT google “PUPPS” and look at the images, it’s totally gross! Not at all what mine looks like…..yet anyway. What I want to know is how many of you are totally going to google it because I told you how gross it is? I know I would totally be one of those people. ha ha. But at least I can say I warned you. lol
So yeah, that’s what’s up in my life today. Oh and I’m totally sporting my yoga pants since they don’t go up over my belly & cause me an itchy mess of a day & my awesome Barn Owl Primitives shirt. Heck yes – I love me some BOP. Don’t you? No? Well, then, pretty much we can’t be friends.
Oh, yes, the post title did say – Opinions – too didn’t it?! Here’s the thing folks, here on this bloggity I do reviews of products sent to me, typically in the past it has been handmade jewelry & various other handmade products. Way back in the day I used to review the products I used on the kiddos just because I like sharing what I love. Here’s where your opinion comes in – How would you all feel about me reviewing bigger items? Say car seats, cloth diapers, baby products, kid products? I would obviously limit them bc I don’t want to be one of those blogs that all you ever see are products on their posts and I still want this space to be about me & my insane life…..plus come this fall I am going to have some AWESOME posts with juggling a 3 yr old, 2 yr old and twins. ha ha.
So yeah, what do you think? Seriously. I really respect your opinions!!!!!
Do you like reading about other bloggers opinions on items like that or do you rely on reviews via amazon or review sites instead?
Thanks loves! Now let me go shower bc well, I’m on day #3 of no shower. Ew!
