So from about the middle of last week until now I have had some redness on the lower part of my breasts. They also felt warm to the touch. I did a little Dr. Google and thought maybe my ducts may be blocked. I decided to wear a different bra and go without one while at home to see if that helped. I thought it did a little but not really. So today I called the doctor’s office and the nurse called me back. The doctor said it might be a yeast infection. Really??? He said to get some vaginal yeast cream and apply it to my breasts for 2 days and if it wasn’t better to go in to see him.
I again looked online because this seemed really strange to me. From what I read (briefly) they make it sound as if it is a rash and it is itchy, etc. Mine is not a rash and it does not itch. It looks like I have a mild sunburn in the area below my nipples. But I am applying the cream and Wednesday if it is not improved I will call to get in to see the doctor.
This whole things still seems pretty strange to me. But it is what it is and hopefully this does the trick. I do think I need to go get a new bra. I feel like my breasts have grown even more recently. With about 19 weeks to go I dread thinking of how big they are going to get. YIKES! I started off around a 36 C/D and am now wearing a 40D. What size is next? I will probably go and get a maternity bra, so I am hoping that is more comfortable.
So that is what is happening on this end.
Oh and I think I may have actually felt the baby from the outside. He has been active here and there the last couple of days and I placed my hand on my belly and could have sworn I felt it from the outside. So maybe in the next week or 2 hubby will get to feel some kicks too! I did have a tough time last week. Hubby had a concert up in Wisconsin so we drove the 6 hours and I did not feel a lot of movement then. Probably because the car ride was bumpy and then that night I did not feel much at all either. So worry wart me thought something was wrong. Thankfully I felt some movement on Friday when we would stop on the drive back and then listened to our little boy when I got home. Whew! Since then I have felt quite a bit of movement and I love it!
Thanks for reading!
