So last week I noticed that my hips were itchy. Not too bad, but enough to irritate me at times. By Saturday I noticed that my hips were red and kind of welt-y looking and the itching was getting worse. I googled rashes and PIO (what did we do before google??) and I assumed that it was an allergic reaction to the sesame oil. So I called my OB's exchange and the on call doctor called me back. The nicest man, but I was not confident in his assurances that all was fine. I did continue my PIO injections and called my OB this morning. His nurse called back and told me to come in. ASAP. Great!!
So he examines me and is unsure if it is from the PIO or if I have a staph infection. I am to quit the PIO immediately (yay!) and switch back to the suppositories. I am on an antibiotic in case there is an infection. I have to return on Thursday for him to double check things.
This part is TMI, so please feel free to skip....
While there I had him check the hoo-ha. Since about the 3rd week of pregnancy I have had asparagus smelling urine but no other odors. Until now. I know that odors can be normal, but being that very few things seem to go right in my quest to have a baby, I am afraid that my new scent is not in the normal range. He did a culture and I will hear back about that tomorrow.
So as it stands: I have a possible allergic reaction/staph infection--treated by antibiotics--which will give me a yeast infection--while waiting to hear back if I already have an infection. And the fun never ends!!! The good news is that I now just 4 days from stopping my meds. WOOT!
