we took a little family outing to frog pond at the common yesterday. this is absolutely one of my favorite boston attractions in the summer time and atticus had more fun this year since he could run around and splash to his heart's content!
i started prenatal chiropractic care last week and my chiropractor gave me some good advice i'd like to pass along. first off she told me that if you are suffering from jet lag, as i have been, you should go swimming (hence the trip to frog pond yesterday). apparently somehow the sensory experience of swimming helps to reprogram your body's natural rhythms and helps eliminate jet lag, weird, right? i was desperate though so i tried it. i did sleep better last night. who knows if it was from the swimming or if it was all psychological, doesn't matter to me. all i can say is hooray for sleeping!
so her other advice is mostly for expecting women - but just an FYI - raw almonds help relieve heartburn and freshly brewed ginger tea helps relieve nausea. i used ginger in my first pregnancy as well. it really helps. last night i peeled a couple inches of fresh ginger then sliced it up and boiled it in water for 15 minutes. then just strain it and drink it. voila! no nausea - that's what i like to hear!
alrighty - that's all for the random advice. carry on...
