This is the difference between Tommy and Blake. Tommy ever since he was little has been my little nurturer. When I was pregnant with Blake and with this pregnancy if I am throwing up he will often come in and see if I am ok. Rub my back, ect. Not Blake. Blake finds me throwing up to be quite annoying. If he hears me even start gagging he will say sternly, Mommy, NO PUKE! If I actually throw up he will follow me into the bathroom (every time) and stand next to me, saying Mommy, Done?? Over and over until I am done. The other day he got tired of waiting and asking so he finally said, Mommy Done, and then slammed the toilet seat on my head. Letting me know I was done and he was tired of waiting.
I have to admit I am a little depressed because my nausea is getting worse and worse. I thought for sure if I got my Zofran medicine soon enough I could keep myself from getting too sick. The hardest part for me being so sick, is not throwing up all the time, but what it does to my family. Eric, bless his heart is trying so hard to pick up the slack, make meals, clean the house, play with the kids, do the laundry, ect. But I can tell he is already overwhelmed. Tommy couldn't be any sweeter. He is thrilled that he is going to have a new brother or sister(he is convinced it is a sister and there is no convincing him otherwise.) He takes really good care of me. When Blake goes down for a nap, he knows that mommy really needs to lay down too. He is really good at being quiet, playing by himself, and even answers the phone when it rings so it won't wake me up. This surprised me because I didn't even ask him to do this. So I thought it was really sweet. But my heart hurts for him, because since he is so sensitive, he is the easiest for me to neglect.
Eric's birthday is on Friday? Any suggestions? I don't have a lot of energy and defiantly have no desire to go out to dinner or make him anything. We are on a tight budget, but I defiantly want to do something for him to show him how much I love him and how much I appreciate all he is doing for me and our family. He really is quite a trooper.
This coming week is spring break. I am praying with all my heart that the Zofran will start kicking in and things will get better. But just in case, any suggestions on what I can do with he kids? I don't want them to watch TV all during spring break because mommy is sick. Any fun and creative ideas, that don't take to much energy.
Anyone have any nausea advice for me? Something that really worked for them? I will try anything.
