  • I would call L&D and ask to talk to a nurse and tell them your symptoms and maybe they can suggest something, Good Luck

  • i had this problem with two of my pregn. the doctor called it PUPS i cant remember what it stands for, but anyway i would call your doctor, they cant give you much but some cream if it is PUPS, but if it is really bad to my doctor said that he has induced before on some women when it getts really bad. mine was really bad to the point were i couldnt sleep i tried ice packs and used frozxen peas it seemed to help alittle but not much, ended up going into labor anyway, but i would call you doctor and ask to be seen or see if there is anything you should be doing? i could be wrong about the PUPS but i just know that is what i had and it is terrible atleast for the mother.
