Pruritic Urticarial Papules and Plaques of Pregnancy - PUPPP

Flic it's awful but I have been googling and bought a soap online called Grandpas pine tar soap it stinks to high heaven but it works! It took 5 days to get here but only 2 to actually work, my skin is very dry but a day of slimy moisturised skin (bllerrghhh) and no showering seems to of helped. So anyone finding themselves with this condition order the soap asap use it 2-3 times a day washing off with cool water and make sure you moisturise straight after as it dries out the hives.

Pruritic Urticarial Papules and Plaques of Pregnancy - PUPPP

I am currently 35 weeks pg and I been suffering with PUPPPS for a week, it all started with ..... small red spots/rash on my belly itching waking in the night needing to scratch when I do scratch it's not satisfying it hurts just itches more I have been to my GP who hadn't seen it before and he gave me some aqueous type cream, I don't have dry skin so anything I ever use just sits on top and doesn't absorb so it makes me feel even worse at this point I had just a few itchy spots, 2 days later I ...

Night time Nakedness??!!

They do them in all the supermarkets I used them for my DD1 when she was going through the night nappyless they saved the mattress from any accidents, but they can make them sweaty that's the only down side. Just a thought but have you thought about putting her in a proper bed? it may take her mind off the nappy issues?

Help!! toddler scared of the potty!!

When they are ready they will do it, I understand wanting to introduce them to the potty but I also think that it makes no difference at all, my DD1 was just 2 (lterally her 2nd birthday) when she decided to use the potty she had her issues over that year with toilets, and we had to take a seat or potty everywhere with us as she refused to use the big toilet, my DD2 hadn't clapped eyes on a potty and at 3 and 1 month sat on the toilet on holiday and hasn't had a nappy on from that day she never ...

Not standing up!

It's pretty common my DD2 didn't walk till she was 20 months old she wouldn't even attempt to bear weight on her feet she used to do a frog leg impression everytime we attempted to try, at the time I was worried of course my DD1 was walking at 13 months and cruising months before that, DD2 then started to bum shuffle everywhere at around 13 months and then eventually she just started walking she has done everything later than is suggested which annoys the living daylights out of me because albei...

Post Baby body - please share your experiences!

You sound fine great even, I suffered post baby and although I lost weight and got back to my pre pg weight I have never managed to get rid of the tummy and it took a good year to get there, I also had my 2nd child fairly quickly after the first and so that didn't help in how I looked after having her, both were 8lb9oz so fairly big. My biggest issue is with my tummy it's not flabby at all but it sticks out and is hard at the top just under my boobs which it so hard to hide, spanx do not work fo...

Preventing constipation?

My dd2 suffers with constipation I believe it's due to lack of fluids but saying that she was exclusively BF for 6 months and she still managed to produce hard large poos after days and days of nothing but straining, when she went to solids it got worst and after a trip to the hospital as I could feel the poo in her tummy and she was really upset - she eventually managed to go and I bagged it up and took it to the gp he gave her movicol and basically said her bowel had stopped working and this w...

16 months old wakes up every night_Help!

It's really tough I have been through this twice and for while both of mine woke they still do on occasion but it's not due to a habit, it's like waking at 7am every morning you start to just do it like your body is saying Oh it's that time again! I think the same happens to children and it's a case of breaking the habit, milk I agree needs to not be offered if you can bear it for a few days they soon get the idea, maybe over a weekend? I also think dropping the afternoon sleep would help matter...

Logistics of going on holiday with twins....(and two bigggg dogs!)

Not sure it's a twin question rather than a family question (might be worth moving this to the parenting section?) we went to france last year with two small children 20 months in age difference one was potty trained the other not - the dry one needed to stop and have a wee every hour and the other one slept the entire journey! Same with actually being out and about the youngest sat where I placed her while the eldest was running a mock and moaning about the journey! Honestly Duffy make the most...

Retained products

I have just looked and the last scan I had it was 3cm my GP wanted it out by having another D&C the cons disagreed and said it would be absorbed or come away mind you DD2 was 8 weeks old so it had been there a while! Fingers crossed keep us posted!

Retained products

Hi Bry I had retained products after having my DD2 I had a D&C in the end and believe or not I still had retained products I will need to look back on my posts to see the size but it was fairly small and came away in time. I am sure they will either offer a D&C or as it is a small amount they might think it's better to let it come away naturally rather than you go through more surgery. Hope you are ok though hopefully by the 7th it would of gone!

Snot, a blip or a hungry baby?

Us too and I started her on finger foods which not at lot goes in or down for the first few weeks so for my DD2 is was more a fasination than hunger. We also went through the 4 month stage/ growth there is a thread back in the archives of me asking the same questions as you what a great sleeper though! She'll soon be back to that fingers crossed
