Thanks ladies

The Radiologist called my OB and she called me to give me some info. The Radiologist thinks it's a cluster of enlarged lymph nodes. The largest of them is 3 1/2 by 1 1/2 inches. My OB also mentioned a possible "vascular malformation" because there are blood vessels traveling through them.

She said it's "possibly" due to the pregnancy hormones. Which we already know has reeked havoc on my system; i.e. the severe itching skin condition that's just now getting better after weeks of treatment.

She said it's very odd. But didn't sound like it was too serious (I hope). There are lots of reasons lymph nodes can become enlarged, but it's usually an infection, so that does still concern me, just because of the prgnancy, I don't want anything that could hurt my little bub.

I'm going to meet with a General Surgeon tomorrow at 1:30 PM to hopefully find out what's next.
