The itching....

Okay, so there is one major drawback to having a c-section...the itching! (I had been warned about it, but had no idea how serious of an issue this would be!) As the spinal wears off, the itching begins. It starts as a faint itch. Then turns into a constant itch. And slowly makes it's way down your body. First with your nose, then around your mouth, then your neck and chest, then all over. And nothing they can give you (Benadryl or even stronger drugs) can stop it. In many of the pictures from the hospital, you can see how I have rubbed my mouth raw from constantly itching it. (I liked to use the pink hospital blanket...as it was rough and seemed to help at the moment. But did horrible things to my face!)
