with the good, comes the bad...

Good news first: My glucose test came back normal! WooHoo!!! According to everything I can find on the internets, if the fasting level comes back over 95 you're in trouble... well, mine came back at 61. That's super good news... that means I don't have to give up my Oreos!! (yea, yea... and all that other important stuff too, like the health of my daughter, etc etc... I'm just super excited about being able to continue to eat my Oreos after dinner!!) My iron levels came back good too, so take that - all you nay-sayers that try to say vegetarians will become anemic!

So, on one hand I'm taking a big sigh of relief!

But... on the other hand, well, I'm feverishly itching myself with the other hand, because I have the chicken pox. That's right. I'm 24 years old. I had the chicken pox when I was a little girl, but apparently I have them again! First of all, according to my mom, when I had them when I was little I only had 10 or 12 pox on my entire body, so perhaps I didn't have them bad enough to build up an immunity. There's also the chance that I'm one of the lucky people in the world who just get them more than once, regardless of having them as a child. Thankfully, they don't seem to be very severe this time around either, but it's still an inconvenience. I can't go to work, I can't go run errands, I can't go hang out with any of my friends... I just have to stay home. And... clean? How fun!

Thankfully, they waited to pop up until I got back from our trip to Colorado this passed weekend, and they'll be gone in time for my baby shower... but in the meantime I'm left to clean out the office and to try to not itch the bumps. (Yea right, good luck!!)

3 cheers for getting an embarrassing childhood disease as an adult! Hip-hip-hooray!!

(Oh, and no worries about it negatively affecting Madeline... as long as they're gone by the time I go into labor she won't be affected at all.)

Hehe I am still giggling that you have the Pox! Because nausea, sore breasts, cramping, exhaustion, etc isn't enough - mine as well throw chicken pox in the mix!!
