Ok any ideas ladies?

 

 

 

I thought these were bug bites because they itched.  B has them all over her feet, legs and hips.  But as you can see if you look closely at the picture, a small blister has formed.  It looks like chicken pox, but she has had no fever and they aren't all over her body.  And they definitely didnt start in a typical pox place.

Sara, Sorry about the sickness.  Boo!  Often if you use your tinfoil hat like a tinfoil face-mask, it can prevent sickness and woo-woo at the same time!

 

Joanie, I really don't know much about foot pain issues, but if it doesn't get better soon or seems to get worse, it's probably worth a trip to the dr.  

 

Ash, They still kind of look like bug bites to me.  I'm not sure which kind, but I have seen bug bites with a little blister or blistering across the whole thing.  Are they getting worse or changing?

 

It's sad how many parents care more about their own work schedules and conveniences than getting their children the best education.  Can you imagine purposely sending your kids back to a teacher that was ticked off and disgruntled about being there and teaching your child?  I mean yes, they're already underpaid, but then to be grumpy as well??  Geesh!  I'm super picky about education though.  The public school district here is bad, so we were going to homeschool again if Cyan hadn't gotten into this new school.  We are lucky that they're more interested in filling seats this year rather than getting the full tuition.

They are changing.  They are in various states of blister/crust right now.  There are perks to having a doctor friend- because she just came over, and said yeah it looks like chicken pox :/  No pediatrician needed!  Haha.

Well, that's good then, hopefully she's old enough that it will count for her immunity.  Have your older kids had it?

Better have a Pox party!!!

 

I woke up with a serious headache this morning. There's a storm rolling in though, so I'm sure it's just a sinus headache. I also had a terrible dream last night about Conner that I don't want to talk about. I woke up crying... Twice. So I'm sure that didn't help my head, either.

 

My BP was 135/93 around midnight last night. So holding steady.

 

Okay, Conner is literally climbing my face and thr zsAZasxxxxxxxxxzxSSDDaseA`2222222222221122

LOL Nicole!!

 

My older kids haven't had it.  I have no idea where she would have got it, either.  My son is 10 and he was vaxed, but my older daughter was not so she should have them any time.

Goddangit. He was climbing on my face and laptop, LOL. Then he hit the power button and I didn't feel like restarting my computer and coming back just to finish that sentence. I figured you guys would get the hint, LMAO.

It takes up to 21 days after exposure and she could have gotten them from a vaxed kid with a super mild case that no one noticed.

My morning wasn't really bad for all that. The only reason blood hit the floor was because he had a bowl in one hand and spoon in the other so obviously couldn't pinch his nostrils. I make pour over coffee, so the burner was probably oily. There was no otherwise perceptible smoke.

Abra, I was under the impression that tinfoil hats held woo in. They keep it out?

My mom told me I look skinny today. :-( it's that obvious.

Sara have you considered high calorie protein powder? Even if you have no appetite, just a smal, drink.

From what I see my ODD should get the pox right as school should start, and right before her birthday. So yay :/

My kids had it at Christmas and thanksgiving. I understand why there's a shot.

I had some almond butter. I'll probably have a smoothie when I get home. I assume its a short term problem.
post #1171 of 1502
If a child doesn't get vaccinated for chicken pox but never contracts it naturally, is there a recommended age that they get the shot for sure then? (I'm wondering since I hear how dangerous it is to acquire as an adult.)
post #1172 of 1502
Joanie, we would have gotten it before puberty.
post #1173 of 1502
Yeah, my comfort level was age 10. Thats why my son got the vax this year. From what I've seen bodies seem to be more adjusted to contract it at younger ages. When teens and adults get it it's often very bad and the risk of complications are much much higher. Thanks to the vaccine, those who don't vaccinate aren't getting it in early childhood when it's safest.

Cyan is 9, unvaxed and still hasn't gotten it.  I did read this week though that a new study just came out saying that they think the vaccine is linked to getting shingles later..  The article I read is below, along with the referenced study.  I'm not sure how legit it is, coming from Natural News and all, but it's something to think about.   I don't know what the best option long term option is..

Sara, tin foil keeps woo in and repels woo, it works both ways, the woo can't cross the barrier.

Wow, Ash, chicken pox?  That's crazy!  Though, there are some things that look similar.  I guess you'll know more if your other kids get it!  Keep us posted!

 

Joanie, sometimes randomly my foot will start hurting, too.  I'm not sure if it's the same pain, but it hurts to put weight on it- like there is a fracture on the top of the foot or something.  If this sounds similar, then something to try is wearing running shoes.  Like all day long- even at home.  Eventually it seems that the support of a shoe forces the foot back into alignment or something and it goes away.  But it can really, really hurt.  Have you tried arnica?  Epsom salt foot soak?

That's one theory. Though the increase in shingles began before the vax. And the rate of shingles in states with mandatory chicken pox vax isn't higher than in those without. Either way, people over a certain age should probably get the shingles vax. My dad had shingles a year or two ago; it was awful. He was in severe pain for months and ended up suffering from depression . However, he was more at risk as he had recently recovered from prostate cancer. 

 

When I wasn't vaccinating my girls, my plan was to get the chicken pox vaccine when they were 9-10 ish. They got it a bit before that, though. Jasper will have it on schedule. Actually, I believe he already had that one.

I'm not offended by your vax stance thumb.gif  I'm pro educating yourself and making the decisions you think are best for your family. 

 

This is definitely pox.  More bumps have appeared today, and they are all following the pox pattern.  The only strange part is that they arent all over. 

post #1178 of 1502

Okay. Educate me in dumb terms, please. Differentiating between contractions and baby movements...

 

Let me try to explain what I'm feeling...

 

I know when Layla is moving up North. Like, I can feel her twisting and turning up near my rib cage, but every once in awhile, I get this quick, sharp shooting pain that, if I'm standing up, makes me curdle over in pain. It only lasts a second or two, but it comes in three or four bursts at a time. It's pain like, IN my vagina. Equal to where your pubes grow... But on the inside. THOSE, I can't tell if it's a contraction or if that's just her head and it's a snug fit so it hurts more. They also happen a lot more when I'm being active. Like running around with Conner just now, they happened probably ten times... But when I'm sitting, they don't happen nearly as often. UGH.

 

They also make me feel like I have to pee like, as soon as it happens. That's why I don't know if it's just her head pushing stuff or.......... What. FML!

Yeah that sounds like it could or could not be contractions  lol.gif
