Baby fevers, Migraines, and Coffee

Poor baby Rain with Fever :(

Sigh....

Rain is sick. It started yesterday. It was weird because she was totally fine in the morning. We went through our usual routine. She wakes me up, (yes she wakes up before I do hehe., then we went down to play / have breakfast / play time then i put her down for her nap. When she woke up, she already had fever. 38.9. Still trying to think where she could have gotten it from. No one at my in-law's place was sick last weekend.

Could it be the rain? The rain started pouring when we were all swimming last weekend. But we weren't exposed to the rain that long because we got out of the pool immediately (because we might get wet from the rain ha ha ha). It might also be this crazy weather. Sunny, rainy, sunny, rainy. Anyway I have been giving her Tempra for now. Good thing she likes the taste. We have a doctor's appointment tomorrow morning. Praying it's nothing serious :(

On top of which, I have been having headaches. Actually I think this could be a mild migraine. I googled the difference of a headache and a migraine and it said that migraines can be triggered by sensitivity to noise or light and occurs on one side of the head... which is what I have been feeling for the past 2 days. Every time I use the laptop (like now) or the iPad, the light from the screen gives me a headache and I always feel it on the right side of my head. Sometimes I even feel a hint of nausea.

I googled this and found out that coffee is a good remedy for migraine. Actually, it said to drink ibuprofen and then wash it down with a cup of coffee. Interesting...

Only one way to find out if it works. I'm going downstairs now to make me a hot cup of cappuccino to drink along with my advil. Lately my favorite has been Nescafe 3-in-1 Cappucino. Have you tried it? It's so good!

Do you also suffer from migraine? Any tips?

Shoo sickness! Go away!!! It's my birthmonth! Especially you, fever! Leave Rain alone! :-p

Sick Baby spending QT with Daddy by watching him play Candy Crush hehe :-)

  1. Hope Baby Rain gets well soon! Baka lagnat laki lang. :)

    I have migraine too. Coffee and ibuprofen combo works all the time, but I also have this med called Excedrin. Not sure if it's available locally, though. Sa States pa yata siya binibili ng mga tita ko. Migraine runs in the family kasi. :(

  3. Hope little Rain gets well soon. Might be caused by the bipolar weather we've been having. Super init in the morning, then super humid and then rainy in the afternoon. :( If she doesn't have cough or colds, you can check din for signs of UTI. My daughter just had UTI a couple of weeks back, and yun bigla lang din nagkaron ng fever, as in out of the blue.

    I read din about coffee being good for relieving headaches/migraine. Best daw if black coffee. :) Although medyo bitter lang sya, it works wonders for someone like me who gets frequent headaches. :D

    1. Hi Tin! Thats the first thing Rain's pedia asked me the first time I called her. If she cries when she pees. Fortunately no naman. She had her check up na kanina and said its either viral or because of her growing teeth. :) but i really pray that's all. Sana her fever doesn't come back na.

      Re coffee: i don't drink black coffee eh hehe super napapaitan ako hehe. But we'll see pag bongga na yung migraine ko i'll do anything!:-) thanks for the comment!!!:-)

  4. Hi Rina! Got migraines too, and is unfortunately hereditary for me :( migraines usually happen during summer when the heat is at its worst... Have a ready icepack lagi, slap it on your forehead/eye area when u feel one coming on. Black coffee is always recommended, pwede ka naman maglagay ng sugar - napapaitan din ako eh hehe! On meds naman, advil is what i take when the pain's just starting palang... but when it's a full-blown migraine na, ponstan 500 SF does it for me! Mabilis sha super! Hope this helps - and sana gumaling na si baby Rain! :)

  12. hi! i'm a new follower of your husband's blog, then saw your daughter, she's really pretty. i too have a daughter. she's now 11 months old, syempre she's also pretty.. hehehe

    anyway, about migraine before i got pregnant, i have a terrible attack of migraine attack monthy. yes, monthly, mine's hormonal. i always take naproxen once i felt it's starting. i never tried coffee, because i learned it can stimulate migraine, never did i knew that it was a meds. maybe i learned it from a different google.. hehe i just hope my migraine never comes back. and i hope you and your baby is now well.
