Any mummies experience wrist pain? It's the wrist area below the thumb. Any advise for treatment?
Me! I got pain in both wrists just below the thumb even during pregnancy.. At times it is so bad I can't even write normally.. Was told that it is water retention and will go away in time.. I just hope it's soon..
weekends suppose to be a wonderful time with family but I just hate it .. sickening mother in law ..
my left wrist is injured since the birth of my son...i went to 2 chinese doc they said is mummy's injury...coz of the constant carrying of our children...no choice...
i still experience pain on my wrist but now trying not to use it..when my hubby is back he handle our son..carrying to burp him...as now we now feeding him on the bed so no need to carry unless to burp...
yea, the wrist pain is mummy's injury (DeQuervain’s tendinitis) . Checking if any mummies have home remedy to relief the pain. :-)
I went to chinese physician today and is given medicine for the tendon's inflammation. Hope it will helps.....
DeQuervain’s tendinitis is a painful problem which results from irritation of tendons on the side of the wrist which move the thumb sideways away from the palm. It can result in wrist and forearm pain on the side of the thumb, particularly with certain positions and movements of the wrist.
no relief for me...i went to 1st chinese doc for 2 times...the 1st time relieve it a bit she told me come back 2 days later which i did but when she did the 2nd time she bruise it..became worse with blue black...
so i went to my side chinese doc...he made it much better not as painful...but still hurts when i overuse it...
moms who exclusively breastfeed their babies:
have you had your period yet?
Hubby just sleeps n play diablo n watch anime when home. This morning he slept thru the entire morning when i bathed baby... All happening in the same room, changed baby on the same bed. I had to run around get the tub, bathing stuff like the body wash n ruyi oil n nappy cream etc... Clothes, towel, nappy, boil hot water, fill tub w water... He just sleep. Then I wanna make myself a late but good breakfast since I'm not alone, n leave baby on bed w her daddy. She's usually good in the morning but she was just wailing away. Told hubby to sing her songs etc which is what I usually do... Told him these r things he should learn to do... He's a father already. Then I fried an egg baby kept wailing.. Ran back to room. Great, hubby use "eye power", just lie there watching baby cry. I was on the verge of using vulgarities, in the end gobbled down my breakfast, no chance to enjoy, n quickly went back to attend to baby while hubby continued to sleep. Afternoon same. On the same bed I latch baby n coax baby he just nap. baby cried he turn the other side cover ears. Last night in front of his mum still say want keep baby clothes for second one cos mother in law was saying give ppl. If mother in law not around I sure shoot him back... Die also dont want 2nd one if he's gonna be this unhelpful!!
Oh I did a search on the wrist pain thingy... Here's one article http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703350104575653223648778294.html
Reiann i have some spotting on n off :/ I suspect is just "leftovers" lochia since not much to be period I guess...
"Hubby just sleeps n play diablo n watch anime when home."... felicity.. same here although he dont't play diablo... He watch downloaded series, movies.. sleep.. only help to feed baby when i'm busy.. Morning ask him if wanna go for breakfast together, he ask what i want to eat, but end up... sigh.... still nothing... in d end i have to eat instant noodles.
Reiann period not yet cm..am ebf baby..
anyway i do feel bad n guilty for complaining about my hubby so much >< but am also glad that i'm definitely not alone *hugs all* cos i keep thinking everyone else's hubby will help... then a bit imbalanced. haha... we shall all jiayou together! we are capable mummies!!
I am super mean wife/mommy LOLz
I tink maybe some hubbies are just not so into looking after babies? I have a male colleague who is super on the ball.. Will wake up at night to feed baby etc.. But my hubby wun cos he says he gotta work the next day (which is true).. Ask him feed baby he also feed until dont know is baby drinking or baby shirt drinking (cos all wet!).. Sometimes baby crying wen I'm pumping milk ask him entertain baby first, he will carry baby but baby continue wailing he will just put down and similarly use "eye power" like felicity hubby and watch baby wail while asking "you hungry ?" Everytime baby cry he just ask me baby hungry issit? -_-" Then say baby dont like him to carry (which I dont understd y also, papa carry baby keep crying, I carry a while baby will sleep and stop crying).. So taking care of baby becomes my job.. Ok , at least he did try..
Oh ya.. My period have not come since the last of lochia 6 weeks post delivery.. Am exclusively pumping now (direct latching only once or twice a day).. I heard period wun come as long as breastfeeding right? Though there are some exceptions .. I dont particularly look forward to period coming back so soon.. Messy messy! Haha..
Hi all, my son is fine. Thank god. Had a tough few days monitoring hi fever m sponging him. Glad he I ok .
But one issue after another... Had a misunderstanding with my mother in law n she just packed up and left the house. Super disappointed with her actions. So I had to take urgent leave for the next two weeks n now I need to source for an infantcare. Can't believe she will react in this childish manner.
Hubby says she is a simple woman.. N I thought so too. But... While I was chit chatting nicely with my mother in law I just casually asked her how she use the water to wash my baby clothings cos this month PUB bill went up alot it didn't make sense to me cos during my confinement the brother in law was lesser n I had my air con turned on 24 hours then-shouldn't e bill b higher on that month? So becos of THIS qn she was soooooo unhappy she sobbed so loudly n complained to my hubby says she help take care of baby very xinku here, restricted with all sorta ways... Then she ping ping pong pong the drawers packed her stuffs n left the house with 6 bagful of stuff. I was still like in shock.. I even asked her eats wrong, clarify the matter even if you wanna left... I didn't even scold her or blame her.. Just wanna know the source to the reason why e bill went up so high.. I mean if everything she did was e same then maybe it cld b leakage somewhere n need to repair mah... Shake head...
Totally unreasonable. Very very disappointed with her. And I thought I had been nice to hEr alrdyzz. Although I wanted her to leave I was hoping she do so after baby turns 1.5yrs.. Now totally lost my respect for her man.
Luckily hubby didn't blame me.. But now I have to deal with caring e baby alone.
piglim, * hugz * luckily your hubby is on your side if not I think everyone will start pointing fingers at you .. anyway mother in law r hard to due with at times some r just unreasonable. just wondering Hw you going to face her next time I think she sort of angry n kana hurt by your qns.
sigh, today had another quarrel with my hubby partly bcos if mother in law. Ask him pat baby to sleep dont bring him out to play with mother in law while i go shower.. Cos whole afternoon of carrying n playing with mother in law still not enough? ? came out after bathe saw baby outside with mother in law again .. carrying n talking to baby sometimes keep feeding him water .. really get on my nerves .. I straight away ask him y you still never pat baby to sleep still bring him outside .. he fed up already say what baby cry so let mother in law carry him etc etc .. say what mother in law already patting him n what else I want .. but e fact is I saw her carrying tossing here n there .. n our tone of voice raise up making us into our hot temper mode. . then he went out to carry baby back n throw baby to me say what you can you make him sleep . really pain in e neck .. every weekends .. !!
Wa Piglim, your mother in law very drama! Just one question and she jiu so angry? Looks like 借题发挥.. Or maybe she couldn't really handle baby so very stress, a little qn will trigger her off? Just like wen I'm super stressed with baby and hubby come qn me, I will bite his head off! But then no matter how angry she also cannot like that .. Next time how to face each other? Tsk tsk.. But luckily your hubby stood on your side .. So last min you still can find infant care? Heard a lot of places no vacancies .. Jia you!
Purpur, *hugs* Hubbies! Seriously, I dont know whether their purpose in life is to make us angry and vomit blood.. They just want to play with baby but caring for baby? No, to them, that's a mummy's job.. -_-" Even play also play a little while and it's up to mummy or anybody else to entertain the little one.. Sighz..
Yes yes drama... How to face her? I will just do as normal. Not my fault also.. Not like I kick her outta e house right? I merely ask her a qn. Her reaction so big. She want or dont want to acknowledge me as her daughter in law i also dont care . So unappreciative.. I alrdy make things so easy for her.. No need to do housework no need to cook (order tingkat) hubby n my clothes I wash n hang... N she cld go her sunday church... All she needed to do was care for e baby n wash his clothes. Easy right? Hubby n I even bought her a 600+ foot massage package so she can enjoy... Last sun I somemore help her dye her hair n massage her head... This kinda mother in law....
Really I m just glad n thkful my hubby is rationale. (well in e first Plc I wasnt being unreasonable) I think if anyone of you will also raise e alarm if you see the stark difference in e PUB bill if all things seem the same.
Anw can I ask you all the vegetable detergent (to wash the baby bottles) you know the 2 bags of refill. How long can it last you? Cos my mother in law uses 1 bag in a wk. I got hubby to ask her how she use.. Just ask only not like we blame her... Also she not happy.. I mean com'mon the detergent not cheap also .. 1 bag costs $10.. If one wk use one then 1 yr 400+???
Then another time I see her wash her bedsheet every wk I just casually ask "wah mother you change bedsheet every wk one ?"
so when she left she blah out things like this... Wah lau so I m suppose to shut my mouth . Ask qn can die?
Ya.. I also know alot of infantcare all no vacancy... have to see how ... Initially we still planning # 2 when my son turn 1 yrs old next yr... Now dont even need to think .
