I'm very sick!

I am really sick! This is the 1st time I fall sick since last June. 3 days ago I woke up with a heavy head and painful joint, I knew I had fever but I still try my best to complete the daily baby caring routine and drink as much water as I can to cool the body down. RY took half day off to relieve me from bb caring so that I can rest, he wanted to bring me to doctor but I refused as I am breast feeding and don't think I'd take any medication. By evening, my condition got worst, I started to vomit and too frail to eat or drink. I slept thru the night while RY attend to baby. The next morning, my fever subsided but I had diarrhea. I was very stubborn and refused to go to doc as I thought my body will self heal by passing out the toxins. My stomach was also churning with pain. I still ve fever on and off. By evening, the diarrhea was really bad that despite taking lomotil, it still didn't stop the diarrhea. I finally gave up and went to the doc. The doc suspected that I might ve rotavirus infection since it's like an epidemic in SG recently. He has a few patients who suffered the same as me and need to be hospitalized since normal antibiotic didnt work. I was told to go to hospital if the jab and other medication he gave me didn't stop my diarrhea the next day. I was still having mild diarrhea yesterday and RY wanted to admit me to hospital, again I refused as I need to care for my bb as I ve no help. I tried my best to rest and hydrate myself, hoping that the body will heal faster. Today is the 4th day and I sincerely hope that I'd recover well. This rotavirus is really potent, I ve lost 3kg within 3 days. The body just shut down and refused any intake of food, so I didn't eat or drink much but still diarrhea >20 times within a day. I feel really sorry for my bb that i can't attend to her fully and my milk production has significantly reduced and she not drinking enough. I am very upset and angry with myself that I fell so ill, I am everything to my baby and yet I am helpless sitting there just watching her cry as I was too weak to carry or pacify her. I must get well soon for my baby! My poor husband has to care for her on my behalf. A SAHM's (with no helper) fear is to fall sick!

Welcome to Motherhood

I'd like to welcome my friend to Motherhood! I am very happy for a friend whom I get to know thru this blog of mine that she had delivered a healthy baby girl on 22 April 2012! Just like myself, she had struggled with fertility issue for some time before this pregnancy. There are many success stories around us and I sincerely urged the many pregger hopeful out there not to give up. God listens to our sincere prayer and will grant us our wish! Just need to be patient! I am happy to make new friends thru my blog and hope that many of you will join me in this journey of Motherhood soon!

Baby Rae at 5 months 18 days old

Last Fri,we brought bb to the clinic for her last 6 in 1 vaccination jab. I was very pleased to see her measurement scale being 66cm tall and 6.7kg heavy! By right she is supposed to have her prenumocuccal jab too but we decided to defer that jab to next month for fear of high fever side effect. We did both jabs in March and resulted in fever reading of 38.5'c. She did develop fever last Fri afternoon but not that high, it was about 38'c. Despite running at a fever, she was still as playful!


My 5 months old baby is teething! She has been waking up in the middle of the night for comfort nursing. Previously, she was able to sleep thru from 10pm to 8am. Last week she also had slight fever due to teething too. I can see 2 white enamel popping out from her upper gum. I hope all her discomfort will be gone very soon and she can sleep thru the night till next morning!
