The plan for today was for us all to go to the farmer's market and run some other errands. Ever since my stomach bug, my tummy hasn't been right. I think the acid/ph balance is still off making me feel queasy after most meals and making me burp a lot (so glamorous, I know). It's been a bit miserable, actually. As we were getting ready to go I started feeling nauseous and knew I'd be miserable if I went driving and walking around a bunch of places. I helped gather everything the boys would need for a few hours, made a list of what we needed at the farmer's market and sent my boys on their way. As soon as they left I went straight back to bed and slept for an hour and a half! When they got back I wasn't to 100% but I was feeling better. We had lunch, watched a movie and played some more. During the movie Ayden and I shared such a special moment. He crawled into my lap, held my face in his hands and gazed into my eyes for a while with a little smile on his face. Then he put his forehead to mine and said, "I lu lu, Mommy." Such a tender and raw moment that brought tears to my eyes. That is a memory I want to keep safe forever!
After dinner we went to David's parents' house to pick up a couple of things. While we were there we turned down the temp on their hot tub and enjoyed a warm soak. Ayden loved it and it was a nice change in our usual routine. As I sit typing this, my tummy is acting up again. I am taking probiotics and am going to try and make some fresh ginger tea to see if it can help settle things a bit. Thanks to that darn stomach bug, here I am going into the second trimester and just now getting nausea. Hopefully things will be in balance again soon. These things just take time I suppose.
