It’s just awful. I felt I should have addressed it in my last post, but I didn’t feel able to yet. This isn’t really addressing it either but it is acknowledging it.
Well, antibiotics but I’ve been able to speak to a Doctor or go to a hospital and be checked out etc.
I worried about this happening the whole time I was breastfeeding B and I had been worried. L doesn’t feed for long but she feeds efficiently. The day before this started she had only fed for an hour and a half the whole day, so I think I should have been trying to get her feed more. Fail.
Me complaining about not sleeping in a nice bed in a safe house etc. Lol. Well, I’m just saying what happened and I was really struggling to sleep – my brain was just thinking of 5 letter words which was really pissing me off. Thanks Wordle and Quordle.
I kind of preferred having the chills. Just waking up covered in sweat is not nice.
At first I was not sure about whether to get them or not, but she said it is different antibiotics to the ones I was taking for the bleeding. Also I did not want things to get worse.
I imagine this shoot will involve cabbage leaves in some capacity. I was telling a friend that having them in my bra makes me feel like an allotment version of The Little Mermaid.
It’s a relief that my Mum comes round and B goes to nursery a few times a week as looking after two kids when you’re feeling as bad as I did at the start of the week is not fun.
Also luckily the weather was quite bad so I didn’t feel so bad for not getting us all out for walks.
I mainly pumped and bottle fed B.
I was sat on the sidelines and felt awkward calling over to people as I felt I sounded so weird.
The teacher was super nice and came to look at L as I left her on our mat to wash my hands. She said there is a baby who is two weeks old starting next week (at a different session).
It was a nice big room so it was not that weird.
It felt a bit more like how classes should have been when B was little.
It was cute seeing the other kids.
People were polite, but L isn’t much of a fun playdate for kids who are interacting with things.
B would have liked the class for sure, but yeah not so much at L’s age.
In her bouncer or something. Sometimes she does, but lately she hasn’t. If we’ve been for a walk I’ll leave her in her bassinet and she sleeps quite well. Sometimes I get the bassinet out for her to sleep in.
I do need to start trying to implement one though. Today we got up at 7 so that was good. It depends what time L has last woken up though. She had an hour of sleep between 2 and 8pm yesterday (B had 1 1/2 in comparison), so she slept for 6 hours. That probably isn’t good for my boob situation, but I needed the sleep too. I went to bed at 9ish and L slept on Tiago, then he moved her to her cot.
I try to be smart if I want us to get out of the house, or if B is going to have a nap and I want to nap too but sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t.
I need to keep a record of when I bath her as I can not remember. We try to bath both of the kids twice a week, but once might be enough to be fair (with flannel washes every day).
She has so much personality. We had a video call with a friend yesterday and she got to see what a ball of energy B is.
She tried to eat one the other day and realised how gross it was.
A bit like Amelie and the raspberries on her fingers…
We can not really leave them in a room together – I mean while I quickly pop into the kitchen to get something.
Super cute. I think in a couple of years they may be in the same size clothes though which ruins my plans of passing clothes down, but I guess L will have to wear B’s clothes for a bit anyways.
