Good afternoon to you too
Please proceed with your query
I am 22 weeks pregnant
I am happy for you
and recently I have got small boil all over my belly
speacilly just below my belly button
They itch a lot
I apply lotion in the morning on belly to keep it moisturized.
Is this normal?
Sometimes it is normal in pregnancy
Is there pain in the boil?
How big is it?
They are just too itchy
It is quite normal
Good, then it is mostly normals
Is there something I can do to reduce the itching
There is no need to take any oral medication for this
Yes, you can apply Lacto calamine
It will be gone soon, do not worry
had one more query
Is this your first pregnancy
Smetimes i get pain in my belly
specailly on the sides
Yes,It is my first pregnancy
It is normal, they tend to become more as pregnancy advances
Have you got tested for TORCH infection?
You can ask for it with your Obstetrician though it is not compulsory
It just rules out any active infection in you
Please wait for a week
Ok..Ill do that.
If the boil does not reduce even after a week's time you may get this test done
Else, it is not required
Yes, please proceed
in my 3rd month
I had a little bleeding
I did sonography
Did you get a scan done at 5 months or 20 weeks?
and the dpctor said its because I have a low placenta
I did a sonography agian now at 22 weeks
The report sayd the placenta is posterior
What does the report say now?
It is a good sign
What does that mean?
It is improving
Placenta is mostly posterior
The low lying placenta will correct by itself
Well...That really relievs me a lot
Yes, it will be fine
Do not worry
Keep yourself happy always
How is the baby otherwise?
for all the help
Is it doing good in the womb?
Thank you too
I dint really understand the report
Can you mail it to me?
Im supposed to show it to my doctor this weekend
You can also mail it to me
Ok..I will try to do that
Ill try to scan and send it to you
Although I had asked the sonography doctor if everything is normal
and he said yes
Please send it to me at YYYY@YYYY with subject as XXXXXXX Attention to Dr. XXXXXXX
It seems like a normal report going by what you say
Ok..Sure doctor..Ill do that
