Puffy eye

Sunday morning - 3:30 am - I woke up to feed Meg and OH MAN my eye itched. I rubbed and rubbed and rubbed, then ran to check the mirror to see if I had pink eye. Nope. It was just my eyelid and it was nearly swollen shut.

This of course led to a middle of the night reading of my baby/breastfeeding reference guides to see if I could take benadryl. I did take it, the lowest dose of childrens benadryl - and no, it didn't work. And yes, it may have made me and Meg drowsy but it was 3:30am so...sue me.

In the morning my eye was still swollen and Aaron declared I should get back in bed. Was I contagious - no. But I was vain.

I took this picture around 11:00 am, after the swelling had gone down by half.

I am SO sorry. This happened to me once too and it should go down in about 24 hours. I'm not sure why it happened then unless you got a bug bite NEAR your eye (which I'm sure you would have mentioned).

At least enjoy your day of not going out in public. PAJAMA DAY!!

Hello Quasimoto!

Just Kidding. :) This happened to me once, but it was because of hayfever allergies. Sounds like you get a nice day at home though!

Maybe you punched yourself in the middle of the night... what did you dream last night? Sorry about that... too bad you don't wear huge attractive glasses like I do so you can hide things like that!

Looks like your fat lip syndrome spread to your eye.

I think it's funny that we've both posted puffy eye pictures this year. Oh, the glories of blogging.
I have so much of this blog to read! You've been busy!
