So we hoped for an easy-going weekend but it was not so.
Sat started off ok. We went to Target to start our grocery shopping but Aidan was being very lethargic. Usually he is full of life while we shop, but this time he just put his hands on the cart and leaned his head on his hands…
Very odd for any toddler I bet. I asked him if something was wrong and he said yes. I asked him if his tummy hurt, head hurt, blah blah… he said no to all that, but I didn’t believe him. Nick said he just thought he was tired but I wasn’t convinced.
Then he refused lunch and even refused a cookie.
Then about 2 pm he threw up. Ah ha – I knew it The nurse line said the stomach flu is going around like crazy. I called because I’ve never seen Aidan get all lethargic like that, so I wanted to be sure I’d get the right foods and liquids in him. Anyway, he threw up 2 more times – the last time being around 5:40 pm yesterday. He started begging for food which was a good sign.
He never got a fever, and he’s been eating jello (sugar free), saltines, white bread, and waffles, and even tortilla chips. Oh and a peanut butter sandwich for lunch today. So I think he’s all good. Seems to be more of himself.
So it’s looks like it was a small bug, but time consuming.
He’s been very terrible two-ish the past couple of weeks, so Nick and I are worn out from all the shouting and whining. The little one is in his bed for now and we are going to try and chill out.
Nick goes to work in the morning and I have an OB appt.
I am feeling better from my cold. Here’s to a better week this time around. Enjoy the rain
PS – my baby development ticker seems to be stuck, and I see that Kristi’s is too… the LaFemme site must be having problems. Tomorrow (Monday) I am at 30 weeks!! yay!
