My mum came to help me on the confinement but only for 3 days. I know I am not being grateful but I really couldn’t stand her hygiene. I constantly need to watch out how she prepares food. And from time to time I found wire from the washing sponge during food preparation. She used the knife to stir the food in the wok. She cut without much caution. I stressed up. I asked her to go back. She doesn’t like me to point out her mistake too. Sigh it is best she go back and I be on my own. I really didn’t want end up quarrelling with her daily. I don’t have so much energy for that.
Then also, I wanted to cater food for this period but then looking at the pricing, it scares me off. IT IS SO EXPENSIVE. Since we already know the date of the procedure, I packed the necessary the night before and went to the market early in the morning.
So during these period, I follow 50% of confinement rules.
I eat confinement food; Ginger, red dates drink; tonic to strengthen my body. (Ok I do love all these food.)
I bath with herbal and only once a day. Blow my hair dry immediately and wear long pant. And I will do this for 14 days.
I try not to do heavy chores and try not to carry Yvette.
I break the 50%.
I send Yvette to school everyday with stroller and I was out of the house everyday. I need to be out to do the blood test too.
I touch water everyday. How can don’t touch water? Need to wash hand after toilet trip right? What about cleaning Yvette?
I need to cook even when my mum was here with me. My mum is a home-maker but then she is not a “good” one. I think I cook good and delicious confinement food too. Maybe one day, I can be Day Time confinement lady.
I only busy in the morning. Cooking and do some basic cleaning. In the afternoon, I am on my bed. Resting and sleeping.
D is great help. Without him, I might not be here blogging now. He paid off all my medical bill which didn’t come cheap. I am not sure I can claim insurance. I will try to submit the claim and let the insurance company decides. (Molar Pregnancy is really very rare in Singapore.)
As for my job, the employment contract was terminate right on the spot after I told my boss about my miscarriage. I lost all the “earned leave” because I worked for only 3 months not 4 months. I don’t know this is blessing or this is reality.
So now I am resting at home and seeking treatment.
I hope I will be fine. I really hope….
