Recovery has been okay. The stitch feels more…obvious this time, as in I’m more conscious of it. The last round, it feels nothing.
I feel that my body is recovering ok as well. The only drawback is the same pelvic bone pain that I had from the old fall. The pain recur during the pregnancy and still haunting me till now.
Aching on my thigh – which I wonder why. But I did remember that my legs were trembling right after birth. Must have use some force during the labour.
Definitely sleep deprived coz baby cluster feed at wee hours 😰
Been sweating a lot coz of the confinement food. Generally I’m okay with the confinement food and practices. And I love red dates tea haha. So I guess that helps with the milk production coz my booby is hard most of the time!
First time out of house, for baby’s checkup. Mighty glad that I did my eyelash extensions before popping.
She is a milk monster haha.
She is progressing well. She had quite bad newborn acne initially that got us real worried. It was bright red patches everywhere. Paed told us that it will go away and eventually it did.
She did had a lil jaundice but no treatment required. I read before that jaundiced baby will sleep more so I will wake her up for milk. So far she will usually wake up for milk but never stay awake.
She is usually wide awake at night 😰
I call it magic, such a precious jewel
S has been great!! I think this is mainly because we talk through our expectations before this. He helps out at home with the kids and running around buying stuff/errands. He wakes up at night when I do just to make sure I’m okay and give me TLC too 😍
And he has been enjoying the confinement lady service. He always wanted a domestic helper at home but I refused. He even asked her to make all kinda desserts for him 😝
Ezra was my main worry before Isla’s arrival but, he proved that he is an amazing brother. He is handling it so well and has been giving a lot of love to the lil sis. He constantly check on her and shower her with kisses.
The only challenge is during sleeping time. He needs me to put him to sleep and i try to settle Isla before that. But it ain’t that perfect at the moment but we are doing ok I guess.
I think I don’t have the luck with confinement lady. Or maybe I have high expectations lol
Current CL is ok with her job generally. She can run the household well and not ‘calculative’ – as in she will do most housework that you asked.
However, I feel that she is lack of experience as CL, esp with baby. She can’t even swaddle the baby correctly 😂. She is not detailed with
