1. The dermatologist at first thought I had a fungal infection called TV, which sounds a whole HELL of a lot like TB, which sent me into panic mode for about ten seconds before he enunciated. After doing a scraping he couldn’t find any actual fungus, so we’re treating it as eczema, and I’m calling it Chestema. My OBGYN blessed the steroid cream that was prescribed, so hopefully it’ll clear up in a few weeks.
2. Charlie is still a girl and will stay a girl (unless she changes that later in life-I’ll love her no matter what). He could even see little girl parts today! I’m relieved. As I’ve said, I would have been thrilled with a boy too, but once you’re bonded to one gender it’s devastating to think of being told something different at the next US.
3. Next appointment is the glucose test. They say I only fast for two hours before the test-does that sound kosher? It’s the one hour test.
