our dog sparkey is also sick

Everytime somebody in our family gets sick, our dog gets sick also.
Kawawang sparkey…

Since yesterday, wala syang gana kumain. Then, when he does, he keeps on throwing up.

Hay… should have him check also.

I think he’s also feeling the heat. Before, he doesn’t want to bathe in cold water. Nanginginig talaga sya. But now, he loves the cold water. And he even lies down in front of the electric fan to cool down.

my cough won’t let me sleep

I am writing this because I am experiencing it right now.  I can’t sleep.

I’ve been struck by a cough and cold virus. And I was told by my OB not to take any meds.  Even those that I take before I got pregnant.

I wrote about what she told me to do a few posts back.

But my then condition has worsen.

It’s already 5:13 am on my computer clock and I’m still wide awake.

Why, because of my pestering cough, I keep on waking up every hour since I went to bed at 1230 last night.

I called up my hubby who is in HK and told him about my situation. He told me to make myself a warm calamansi juice to soothe my throat.  It’s because when I cough, it’s like my whole chest will explode. That’s how worse it is!

I followed his advice.  I stopped coughing. Relieved now. But then, my throat’s still aching from all the coughing since midnight.  Oh well, at least I felt a little better.

And one more thing, I can’t sleep lying down totally.  I need to stay on an upright position so that my nasal passages will clear through.  I am still not sure whether I could sleep in a position like that.

I will tell you that after a night’s sleep in a while.

By the way, I will see my doctor later. I can’t stand the coughing.  I am hoping that she might have a remedy for this.

It’s 5:20 guys and girls. Need to catch up on sleep. Wish me luck! :sleeping:

house arrest!

The weather’s quite hot these days and we are prone to sickness like cold and flu. Oh well, I did catch some of the viruses lingering out there.  So when I felt the symptoms coming in, I immediately texted my OB and asked her what I could do to prevent becoming ultimately sick.

She had this to say: “Gargle warm water with salt. Drink plenty of water. Ascorbic acid 500 mg 1 tab once a day. Bed rest for 2 days.”

Simple right? All natural.  She didn’t prescribe any meds for me to take. I can’t drink any meds because I’m pregnant.

This is why I love my OB.

Oh well, and now what she texted me is the reason why I’m home on a Wednesday and blogging away.

House arrest, anyone? 🙂

as we all know, i am very much pregnant.

this was supposed to be our first summer together as hubby and wifey, but then again, we’re thankful for the bundle of joy that is the reason why i can’t go to the beach.

well, i guess i have to wait for next summer then…

breastmilk is still best for babies

Breastfeeding Pros:
  • Breast is best – provides essential antibodies he won’t get elsewhere, enhances brain development, and lowers risk of asthma and diabetes
  • Good for you – burns calories (500 per day) and may lessen risk of breast cancer and osteoporosis
  • Convenience and cost – you can go anywhere without packing a lot of bottles, plus no expensive formula to buy
  • Bonding with baby- the emotional closeness can’t be matched
Breastfeeding Cons:
  • You are on call all the time – newborn feedings are every 2-3 hours
  • Sore nipples, engorgement
Bottle Pros:
  • Comforting – you can see how much she’s eating
  • You can share responsibility with someone else
  • Similar bonding experience as you are holding child close
Bottle Cons:
  • Formulas cannot provide the same nutritional benefits
  • Cost
  • Time-consuming – you need to sterilize, clean and prepare each bottle
  • Constipation – rarely seen in breastfed babies
