I'm starting to see his 'patterns'. He basically just drinks, sleep, & cry every day. On his good mood days, he will open his eyes and look around quietly for like half an hour.
His jaundice level has gone down, hopefully down to zero. He has mild rashes on his groin. Dr. Dan said most probably due to our humid weather and his rubbing his legs against the tender skins.
Yiu-Shern's 'muscle cramp' smile :)
(read somewhere that baby don't smile in the true sense 'til much later)
Yiu-Shern's favourite pose. He likes to sleep this way....the 'Sun-bathing' pose.
So how is mummy doing?
Good news first. Dr. Eric said my uterus is contracting nicely. Lochia is getting less and less.
B/feeding is now better - not so much engorgement. Just tiring that I am waking up every 2 hours to direct feed Yiu-Shern. He is currently still on exclusive b/milk.
Dr. Dan said Yiu-Shern is gaining weight marvelously - he gained 200g in 5 days. Let's hope this means my milk factory is producing enough milk so far.
Bad news. I have inflammation on my c-sec wound. The stitches were still intact, thank God.
He gave me oral antibiotic initially. But the pain became worse...I had throbbing pain on my wound. Dr. Eric then gave me antibiotic jabs which must be taken 3 days in a row.
Normally, I'm OK with injections. Just that they never can seem to find my veins. I was poked 4 times before he managed to inject the antibiotic inside me. Arghhh....
Dr. Eric also used a needle to make a hole in the wound and then pressed out discharge/stale blood from inside. I need to go back to the hospital for this for the next few days. And not to forget more antibiotic jabs... :(
