It's official, I'm allergic to boys...

So, Saturday I started getting this rash on my tummy.  It was above my belly button and under my boobs...by Sunday, it was above my belly button, all over my boobs and creeping up my neck.  I googled some possible causes (cause, I knew I didn't change detergent or do anything out of the ordinary)...

PUPPPs...Pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy.  "The cause of PUPPP is unknown. It is not associated with preeclampsia, autoimmune disorders, hormonal abnormalities, or fetal abnormalities. Some investigators suggest that the rapid abdominal wall distension damages connective tissue and causes an inflammatory response. One study has shown that male fetal DNA can be found in skin biopsies of the rash. Since 70% of women with PUPPP give birth to boys, a new hypothesis is that male fetal DNA acts as a skin irritant."

So, I am allergic to Dawson's male DNA!  LOL.  I am fine and he is fine.  A lot of my Facebook friends have said they had the same thing so I guess I will survive.

I am going this afternoon to my GP to get a shot (hopefully he will give me one)...and see what he suggests.  I want to claw my boobs off they itch so bad.  Wearing a bra is for the birds right now!  Here is a peak at my tummy just an hour or so ago...this is the top of my belly above my belly button under my boobs...


My shirt is all wadded up...but who cares.  Anyway, I think I should go buy a bunch of lottery tickets...with my luck with this pregnancy...with being sick until 22 weeks...being diagnosed with gestational diabetes...and NOW this PUPPPs thing...yeah, I think my luck is pretty good...
