Last Wednesday I noticed some rashes on my stomach. At first I was thinking it was just normal for pregnant women. And since it didn't itch that much at that time I didn't pay much attention to it. But during the weekend I noticed it has gotten worse (covered most of my tummy) and by Sunday evening it was itching like crazy. And I also noticed that my legs had a lot of mosquito bite like rashes also. I had some of these rashes appearing on my legs already during my first week here in Austin but now they are a lot! Wow naman. Sumabay pa sa stomach rash ko. Napra praning na talaga tuloy ako. So I set an appointment with my OB to have it checked . You should have seen the look on her face. She even asked for a second opinion from the another OB. She said she wanted a dermatologist to check it since there are a number of possibilities what this severe stomach rash could be. I was hearing it might be herpes gestationis (hinde yung herpes na VD ha). Yikes! I encountered this one while researching my symptoms. It's also known as pemphigoid gestationis and it is very rare among pregnant women. Ayan napra praning na ako lalo. But she checked the baby's heartbeat and ok naman daw. Thank God. So she set me with an afternoon appointment with the dermatologist. The derma said she thinks it contact dermatitis. Kasi concentrated areas naman daw yung rash. She was recommending that she gives me creams to help ease the swelling and itching muna and then come back after a week to see if it improves. I was telling it her I did some research and asked if it's possible it's PG. She said that might be one thing to consider but she doesn't think it's PG but if it will make me feel better she can do a skin biopsy to check. She said nga lang it will scar. So the praning soon-to-be-mommy that I am, I opted for this biopsy. Ok lang magka scar, basta malaman ko lang kung PG nga ba or not. Scary kasi yung PG pede daw mag cause the preterm labor. :( So she did the biopsy and now I have some stitches. Masakit sya ha. Mejo makirot pa sya now. I have to go back there next week to have the suture removed. I am really hoping it's not PG. As for the mosquito bite like rashes in my legs, still have no idea what's causing it. Di ko alam kung me nangangagat ba sken dito sa apartment habang tulog ako. But that well that's the least of my worries right now.
I should know the results by end of this week or early next week. Again, I hope it's not PG.
*** now i have some rash on my right wrist... waaaahhh! ano ba itong nangyayari sken ***
