|04-1-2011 - some strange symptoms...
||My mood while writing this blog:|
hey ladies! I have been having some strange and annoying symptoms that I am hoping you guys might be able to shed some light on. first I have been experiencing severe dry skin. I have heard this happens and is a result of my hormones, but it is actually painful on my hands. I now have dandruff and have to use special shampoo, my hands are constantly bright red and bleeding and my face always has dry spots even though I use pregnancy lotion on it. does anyone have any suggestions? I drink seriously almost a gallon of water every day so I don't think I can increase that lol.
second I have been waking up constantly in during the night in pain because both of my arms will fall asleep! obviously I can only lay on one side at a time, but somehow they both fall asleep. I know that I cannot be laying on my back much longer so I have been trying to stop, but when this happens I have no choice. this has been getting worse over the past week or two. lastly, which may be part of the circulation issue I seem to be having is that on both of my big toes I have what looks like a bruise on my toenail on the inside corner at the cuticle closest to my actual toes. when I bump either bruise spots it hurts, but I did not drop anything in the exact same spot on both of my big toes. should I be concerned about this? they don't seem to be getting worse, but I have no idea when they appeared!
I don't go to the doctor's again until the 31st, but I want to make sure that these are all semi-normal pregnancy issues since I have weeks to wait. thanks for listening ladies :)
1/5/2011 update - I am going to the doctors tonight at 5:45...they are not concerned, but they did not want to wait until the 31st.

- Wednesday, 5 Jan thanks girls...I am going to call the doctor today and just see what they say. I am sure it is just circulation issues, but I am concerned that it could be affecting my toenails! hopefully they can give me some suggestions of things to do to help improve circulation...I will keep you posted :) 07babe

- Tuesday, 4 Jan I'm sorry Hun I can't help at all, other then my friend having terribly dry skin on her face I haven't had experience with any of the symptoms described, if you can call your midwife or go and see the DR just to put your mind at rest, good luck and try not to worry (oh also I do get numb arms in the night more often now!) x
