So last posting I had to stop as it was long and I was in the middle of explaining about having the vaccine! So here it is i'll cover both days in one!
Friday & Saturday 26th+27th February:
Friday - I had the vaccine at 3:30pm and exactly 8 hours later I started feeling really tired and a bit off. This was 11:30pm and Jess had only just gone down to sleep! 20 minutes later the chills started. I was cold - really cold and shivering so hard my teeth were chattering! Crept to Sophie's room to get the thermometer and check for a fever. It was slight at this stage 37.8c. Half hour later I started feeling a bit achy in the legs and hips. Another half hour later and my temp was up over 38 at 38.3c and I was aching everywhere. This is the point I reached for the paracetamol. Mostly because I needed to get on top of the aching pain so that I could sleep. I was so uncomfortable until that kicked in and then I could sleep. I dropped off around 3am under a thin sheet. The fever lasted until late afternoon the next day. It went around 730pm. That next day (Saturday) the aching was a bit better but I had a mega headache that lasted right up until around 10pm or so when I went to bed. Woke Sunday and felt fine! I went down around 7pm on the Sat night to watch a bit of a film with the family. I desperately wanted to go back to bed mostly because of the headache. But I also was so bored upstairs! So I stayed til the end then went back up. I was really gutted as Saturday the weather was gorgeous too!! I wanted to be in the garden. I had even joked to hubby known my luck the weather will be really good and i'll be trapped indoors with a fever. And lo and behold I was!
Sophie visited me periodically throughout the day - Even bringing in her green dusted to dust the ceiling?! At bedtime the kids wanted to be with me instead of in their beds for stories so 2 books were brought in and hubby read to all of us. Here's me feeling like death under my sheet.
