Itchy, so very itchy...

Wow - I really wish there was another adult here, because I really need to slather my back in lotion and quite honestly, I don't think Sam's up to the task...

Had a delightful birthday - my wonderful husband actually planned a surprise party for Sunday and all of my favorite family and friends bounced in and woke me up from my nap on Sunday afternoon :-). I had no idea, but it was wonderful. Then we went out to dinner, just the two of us, and had so much fun. Sometimes, it's easy to lose sight of the fact that Marc and I are married, and have a unique relationship independent of being Mommy and Daddy. So it was especially nice to go out to dinner, just by ourselves and sort of reaquaint ourselves with that.

Seriously - I'm ready to jump out of my skin, I'm so freaking itchy. I just lotioned everything I can reach and am still so uncomfortable I can't sit still. I'm wearing actual clothes, maternity jeans, a camisole and pretty top - and I'm usually in comfy cotton pants and big t-shirts. I tried to get dressed like a big girl - but the plain grubby cotton stuff is what's most comfortable...

ugh the itchies. is it just from dry winter air? the only thing working for me these days is Curel.

glad to hear you had a nice birthday and that you & Marc had some (much-needed, i'm sure) alone time.

No - it's a pregnancy thing. I remember sitting at work when I was pregnant with Sam and just itching and itching and itching. I put on SO much lotion, I'm ridiculously moisturized, but nothing is helping. I just talked to my midwife, and she told me to take a benedryl and see if that helps. I'm just afraid it's going to put me to sleep.

I love my comfy cotton clothes - but I got the cutest maternity stuff for my birthday. Jeans, form fitting tops - and I can wear it for about a half hour before I start scratching like mad.
