How many breastfeeding mothers get mastitis?

Posted by on Tuesday, April 1, 2014, In : Motherhood 
Happy Aoril Fool's Day! A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog about mastitis and how I was admitted to ER for this painful infection in my right boob. Well, I thought about it some more today and wondered how many breast feeders get mastitis? Is it a high percentage? I tried to look for a study on that but couldn't locate it. 

The hospital gave me antibiotics to treat it and it went away a few days after  but how did people treat it pre-antibiotic days? Did a lot of mothers die from it?

I'm glad I'm ...

Got my Group B Strep test last week after 36 weeks

Posted by on Tuesday, January 21, 2014, In : pregnancy 
My OB/GYN said that after 35 weeks, pregnant women have to get tested for Group B Strep so I had to get another vaginal exam where they stick a stick test in there. It was quick and painless. It's not like a cervical exam where they stick their fingers in there.

They said that about 20 - 30% of women have this and they want to find out ahead of time to ensure the baby doesn't get infected during delivery. It can cause stillbirth and serious infections for some babies.

17 weeks pregnant and still not craving meat. Maybe I'm becoming a vegetarian?

I guess my body doesn't ...

My sailor proposed to me on the night of April 14, 2012 in San Francisco

Posted by Till Master on Wednesday, April 18, 2012,
My sailor proposed to me in San Francisco over the weekend! Maybe I should have a Sailor Engagement website now? From girlfriend to engaged, it is great to see how the development of this site transitions with this new chapter in my life.

He knelt on one knee and asked me "Will you marry me" on the Municipal Pier near Ghirardelli Square. I knew we were going to get engaged but not this soon.  I was relieved with joy. Sometimes when you know that you're relationship is ready for the next level...
