Itching Itching Itching!

So last Friday night Kev and I went to Texas Land and Cattle for dinner. I had not been there in forever and I forgot they give you that huge yummy loaf of bread, to which I quickly ripped open to eat! While eating I thought yummm some honey would be really good on this bread. So I asked and I received....
Sat morning I woke up and seriously could not stop itching all over my entire body. Where I was itching I was making red marks all over me, to which at first I thought it was a rash, but there wasn't a rash just itching EVERYWHERE! Imagine as if you had poison ivy and nothing took the itching away. Sat night we had plans to adorn our friends Christina and George with a booze shower at the Sava's house. So we attended and had a blast, it was actually was a good thing to get my mind off the itching! However just as soon as we got home I started crying it was so bad that I couldn't take it anymore. I tried laying down but couldn't sleep, it was awful! So we decided to high tail it to the minor ER. Which was actually pretty quiet except for the drunk frat boys who came in all bloody. They were comical and took my mind of the itching for a brief moment. We were called in to the room pretty fast and we explained that the only thing that I ate that I don't usually eat was honey. The ER nurse proceeded to tell me about how her uncle almost died eating honey... not really want I want to hear lady when I'm in the ER...lol. They ended up giving me two shots right in the buttocks! YUCKY! I went to see my OB Dr on Monday and she tested me for Cholestasis. So we are waiting the results of that and hope that we don't have it. Its an issue with your liver and needs to be tended to right away. So if we have to have Mr. Jack early we shall do so! Any who it ended up being a nice weekend as Mothers Day the family came over for lunch and we all hung out. Ill keep everyone updated on the results and hopefully it was truly just the honey!

Fingers crossed its not cholestatsis and it was just a weird reaction to honey!

That's terrible! As if having a giant belly and having to pee every hour isn't miserable enough! Take an oatmeal bath - Aveeno is your friend!
