Confinement - can be defined as the lying-in of a woman in childbed; accouchment; childbirth. But it means being confined or the act of confining. I am in the state of being confined.
There are tons of things that one cant do or eat or drink or play during confinement. Here's a list.
1. No PLAIN water or cold or soft drinks.
= Whatever I drink HAS to be warm. Sometimes even HOT. Now, I can't even drink WATER!
2. No more snacks, tibits and junk food.
= Simply mean no more potato chips, chocolate, candies, blah blah blah...
3. No more bathing, or even touching water.
= Bathing with herbs is the only time to get the whole body wet. Brushing teeth would be only with warm water.
4. No wind to be blowing directly.
= To make that worse, remember you can't really bathe. And to top that up, not much of your body is exposed.
= Most women face constipation after birth. I guess I'm the lucky one.
6. Chicken, Fish, Pork everyday.
= For me, I think I'm going to turn carnivore for a month, since BenBen Mommy is much more worried about me having diarrheas. (After knowing I dont have constipation) I miss my veges and fruit juice. T.T
7. No more outdoor.
= Meaning - no stepping out of the main door. I cant even help to get the laundry just outside the corridor.
8. No bending or squatting. Bed rest as much as possible.
I kinda like this one, but sometimes it makes me feel quite useless. Cant wash the dishes, cant pick up things, cant even sit for too long..
Well, I guess the list can go on and on.. Sometimes it just makes me wonder if I can ever make it through.=If you think Life is difficult, think again. It can be worse.=
