Cream Caramel

It has been exactly a month since I've started work, and one of the things that I miss the most about my confinement leave is being able to bake whenever I want..

Made this for buka puasa today and am feeling a bit better already..

My saviour

I'm in such a stressful condition right now and this baby of mine never fails to cheer me up.

Love u so much, Adli..

Day 4 of fever

Good news.

Adli's temperature is now settling. He was still spiking on and off the first two days. His temperature shot up again to 38.8 degrees at 4.30am yesterday, even after almost 2 whole days of antibiotics.

I went through his charts-looking at his temperature pattern and ensuring that his antibiotic dosage is correct and being served ( with the nurse's permission of course!) The funny thing at this hospital is that they don't chart their patient's temperature in graph form. Hence, I had to put in additional effort to imagine his fever pattern yesterday.

A third antibiotic was started after he was seen by the paediatrian that morning. Since then, his highest temperature is only 37.5, which I take it as an improvement.

What about my own status?

I have started myself on antibiotics, and I am now feeling better. This is good as I can now directly breastfeed my baby. It was such a horrible feeling when I could only watch him cry in his cot, but I was unable to feed or cuddle him.

I hope that we will both recover from this illness soon..

Neonatal Sepsis

At day 18 post partum, my baby is currently being admitted for fever.

Am I worried? Very!

Irritability + high grade fever is not a good combination. I burst into tears when his recorded temp was 39.3 degrees in ED yesterday..

Currently his temperature is hovering around 38 degrees and will only settle after Paracetamol is served. He is no longer as fretful as before and I have found the source of fever which is me!

My temp was 38.8 degrees yesterday and currently I am not allowed to directly breastfeed my baby until my fever has settled..I am still not well as I am typing this.

My dear baby, please get well soon..

Aaah..finally my confinement period feels 'complete'.

Being pregnant for the third time is definitely different. More muscle aches and pain and feeling tired most of the time. It's probably the age factor too. Even the post-op recovery is worse compared to before. I remember back in the year 2010 after I had Aniq, people actually had to remind me to walk slowly, fearing that my Caesarean section wound would open up or something. This time around, I had no choice but to walk slowly due to the pain. After about a week post op, I could walk better and able to take care of my baby fully.

In view of my mode of delivery, I need to wait 2 weeks before I could get a full body massage and bertungku. Today I had a 2 hour and 15 minutes session, and I do hope that after a few sessions, I will feel more rejuvinated, and that my backache especially, will go away.

So far after the first session, I am satisfied with the service given by the massage therapist from Mom's Postnatal Care. She was punctual and polite. She even wore a nametag and a uniform. After the session, Aniq asked me who she was, and he thought she was a doctor! (she was wearing a nurse's uniform) I think I fell asleep during the session too!

Just fed my baby and he is now asleep. It's my turn now..
