Last night I resorted to taking an allergex for my irrtable throat, ear & runny nose & got into bed about 9:30pm feeling quite exhasuted. BebeLuv was refusing her evening feed & I told DH to make another attempt at a dreamfeed before he got into bed…
The next time I stirred in my sleep I heard BebeLuv cry, found DH in bed & my holding pillow (a pillow I MUST hold under my shoulder whilst I sleep) was nowhere to be found…I felt like a block of cement & nudged DH to check on BebeLuv. He replied he just checked & I said I think he was dreaming cos he didn’t move from the bed & she hasn’t made a sound. ?!?!?? He got up & gave her pacifier to her & hopped back into bed. Her cot is a few feet away from our bed. I complained that my holding pillow was missing & he handed it to me. ?!?!?? I was beck into my deep slumber again till 5am when BebeLuv cried again. I could here her nose was stuffed again & went over to her & brought her into bed with us. A habit thats being formed this week & she usually doesn’t want to sleep when she gets in with us, she wants to play. I cleaned up her nose as best as she would allow inbetween her grabbing the nasal spray, screaming & crying & jerking her head in every direction. DH was playing with her a bit & I reprimanded him to not stimulate her & let her try & sleep again. She seemed restless & he told me she didn’t have her feed at all when he tried last night so he made a bottle for her of which she barely drank. She also threw up her cereal lastnight so I am concerned she’s not eating enough .
I felt so drowsy through all this. DH went to get ready for work & I turned my back on BebeLuv so we could both just sleep. I felt like I barely slept through the night when in actual fact I slept like dead. I normally know when DH feeds her & gets into bed. Last night I knew NOTHING! Also he said she cried before the first time I heard her, she probbaly did & he probably saw to her but I heard none of this either.
Just as BebeLuv & I nodded off after her feed this morning, Mum called – 6:30am from China. They on a possible business trip. Dad, Mum & Bro are hoping to go into their own business. Mum called to ask about the price of an item I had previously shown them here in SA & I couldn’t recall the price but I knew what she was referring to. Whilst chatting to em she tells Dad: “She’s in her sleep, she doesn’t know what she’s saying” hehe. I kinda rudely said: “Mum, I know what I’m saying & I know what u are talking about but I do not recall the price”…sigh! Disturb my sleep & then make me feel stupid LoL but I kinda felt like my speech was slurred so can’t blame Mum
When Nanny came BebeLuv just awoke & I handed her over & told Nanny about BebeLuv not having drank her full morning feed. I heard nanny trying to feed BebeLuv her ceral cos a heard an intital cry & then I was knockled out cold again till Nanny loudly called my name to say DH was on the phone. I was in dazed state. I can’t belive I slept through BebeLuv’s cereal feed, normally I hear every sound even when I’m in bed & I also didn’t even hear the phone ring. ?!??
Could this all be from 1 Allergex? A dead to the world feeling for 12 hours?
On more distressing issues: My car maintenance plan was due for an upgrade from 3yrs in November to 5 yrs/100000km. In June DH enquired and they quoted us 11k. In August when DH requested to pay for it & there was a 6k price increase end of July we had some trouble raking up the extra money but decided we need to upgrade the plan. Today DH took the car for a service and planned on paying for the upgrade as well & they now inform him the car is out of motor plan already, as it was purchased in November but registered in August 3yrs ago. We purchased it 2nd hand when it was 7m old so we were not aware of this information. NOW, the only way to upgrade is for us to pay 3k for todays service and then the 17k for the motor plan upgrade – that’s TWENTY THOUSAND RANDS … after a year of retrenchments, medical expenses over our heads, no maternity leave pay & unenemployment for me *sob sniff* to say our finances are a MAJOR stress at the moment is a total understatement
This w-end DH & I need to take a serious look at our finances and make some decisions. I am feeling a great straing about the job hunt at the moment and it doesn’t look like anything’s worked out yet as I have informed recruitments & companies that my availability is immediate and it’s month end so I expected something to look positive, but so far nothing.
Have a great w-end y’all!
