So, the nausea has subsided however I am now not sleeping well at night. I can only stay on my left side for 3-4 hours before my hip throbs in pain. Aiden has also been waking up 1-2 times a night screaming because of nightmares or sometimes even night terrors. He goes back to sleep however my brain has decided that 5 am is a good time to stay awake (even though I can’t fall asleep until between 1-2 am). Needless to say, I am a cranky mommy due to very little sleep.
In addition to telling me that I need to calm down (yes, my 2 1/2 year old has decided that my crankiness is not fun) he has taken it up on himself to try and make me feel better. During the first trimester I basically lived on Tums and we told Aiden that it was not candy but special medicine for mommy because her belly didn’t feel well. Now, when I tell him I don’t feel well due to the lack of sleep he runs into my room to get me 2 or more Tums! Apparently, Tums cure everything!
