Yesterday evening I started to get a headache. I thought it may have been from dehydration (which would have been strange because I had been drinking really well all day) so I made sure to drink extra before I went to bed.
I was awoken from the headache at 12:30am but couldn’t take any panadol because there wasn’t enough time between my last dose. So I managed to go back to sleep (eventually) and was awoken again just past 2am.
This time I woke up freezing cold. Like, more cold than I have been in my life. I was shivering despite having the doona over me. I pulled up extra blankets and then suddenly I was so hot I was sweating like crazy. Literally soaked through my PJ’s with sweat. So I kicked the blankets off and was freezing again. And this cycle continued for a little while.
This time the headache was terrible. If I moved my head it was like the headache would get 10 times worse immediately and last for about 5-10 seconds. It was almost like a pounding spasm in my head. Then once it went away it was back to the ‘normal’ headache pain.
So I got up to take panadol, made sure to drink more again, then went back to bed. I woke up at 5:30am from the pain AGAIN and stayed up another half an hour so I was able to take the panadol again.
Scarlett woke up at 8am and getting out of bed was horrible. I feel weak all over. I feel scattered and foggy. And I feel lethargic. Sneezing kills and if I cough it’s pretty painful too.
Seriously!!! Why?! I just recovered from the excruciating abdominal pain and now I have to be sick? What do I even have? I know I’m not dehydrated because I drank 3 litres yesterday! Is this a flu thing? How long does it take to get rid of flus and/or colds?
Because my c section date is in 9 days. Yup. We are down to single digits and I am so sick I can hardly move. Mum has taken over full responsibility of Scarlett because even standing to change her nappy makes me almost pass out.
Oh my lord I feel terrible.
