allergic?

Can a person be allergic to being pregnant?

I think I am!

Seriously I know I've said this with every pregnancy, but I really dont think my body responds to pregnancy well! Im getting these awful mouth sores, besides how bad they hurt they are swelling up and distorting my face! Today one of my neighbors came over and right when I opened the door she looked at me and said "oh my gosh Kristin did you know your face is all swollen?" and she's not the only one. Last night two other people mentioned my grossly distorted face. Someone commented that it looked like I got braces, someone else said it looks like a really bad lip enlargement. I agree! The other crappy thing is that I cant hardly eat or drink and brushing my teeth is like murder (yes I still do that though) everything I do makes my mouth bleed.

So starting tomorrow I am going on an alkaline diet to see if that helps. I guess you could say I tried the choclolate cake diet today, since thats all I ate today ;-)

Oh my goodness that just sounds painful! And yes I totally think you can be allergic or something like that to being pregnant - I swear it just got worse with each one. That's why we're done - another one could be the death of me!

Have you checked your iron? After my really heavy periods it would drop my iron so low that it would make my mouth break out in canker sores. Good luck, hope things get better.

Even Linda mentioned your poor face today after you left. I hope it gets better soon! It was so fun having you there with us! Kristin, you are my inspiration, you seem to always be able to laugh at your bad luck, and you seem you have more than your share!
Love You!
