sugar

Last night I was awakened around 11 by a fierce pain in my right side, cupped inside my hipbone. When I did so I realized I felt awful-dizzy, nauseated, and shivering so hard that I was making the whole bed shake. My blood sugar had dropped dangerously low. I called Ben, like you do, and he came downstairs and promptly started being the Food Tyrant. He spent the next hour and a half forcing food and apple juice down my ill self. I improved, and eventually dropped back to an uneasy sleep.

The shivering lasted probably about half hour or so, and this morning my stomach muscles are all incredibly sore because of it. I can hardly move without being in pain. Plus the sore spot by my hip is still there.

So Ben called my work, I called my OB, and he took me in. Apparently it's just round ligament pain, which gets worse if you have kids really close together. Joy. She did take blood tests in case it's appendicitis, though. I also subjected myself to a glucose tolerance test, and drank 12oz of probably the grossest drink I've ever encountered. Yuck.

I've been home since, loafing. Two hours of sleep hasn't tempered my headache, or the rest of it. Thankfully Darius is spending the afternoon at my MILs, to give me a chance to recuperate somewhat.

This sucks, a lot.
