Insomnia – we are NOT Friends!

Last night had to be the worst night of insomnia since I got pregnant.  And that’s saying a lot.

Went to bed at midnight, like usual, but tossed and turned until 2am, when my stomach started growling so much that I got out of bed for a snack.  I decided to take my pillow with me and shut the bedroom door to spare poor Hubster from a bad night of sleep.  After Cheerios, cheese, chocolate and two hours of Netflix-watching, I was finally tired enough to doze off.  I woke up a ton of times because sleeping on the couch is not the most comfortable place. (Although, these days I’m not really comfortable anywhere.)  Then at 9:30am, I woke up and was unable to fall back asleep.  My hips are in agony.  I’m exhausted.  Oh, and because I didn’t get enough sleep, I get to deal with some morning-sickness-like nausea today.  Woohoo.

Dear Baby C, I’ll give you three more weeks to become full-term.  After that, would you please help mama out and vacate my uterus?!  Ok, thanks!

    Hey, Kristin, ask Nikki about not sleeping at night. I heard while she is in Missouri she’s been getting sleep in 10-minute increments due to her babies needing her. Could this be more practice??? I’m guessing Krysta has similar stories to share.

    Sorry!! I know I need my sleep or I get crabby, too.

    By the way, can’t sleep past 9:30 am? Nikki, Krysta, what are your thoughts on this????????

    Hey Kristin! I’m catching up on all your posts during this slow day at work. This just happened to me Sat night. I went to bed around 11pm, woke up at 3am and could NOT go back to sleep for several hours. I just tossed and turned, good thing hubby can sleep through anything. Then I was soooooo hungry too! I couldn’t bring myself to crawl out of bed to walk up 20+ stairs, so I just guzzled water (bad idea, because bladder forced me up later anyways). I have a feeling by what you said that this only gets worse…heaven help me! I’m still under 20 weeks along- not even half way yet. Can’t wait to see baby pics! Miss you!

      Hey Chels!

      That is so frustrating! Hope you were able to get some sleep eventually. Oh yes…in a couple months, it’ll be difficult to sleep just because you’re so uncomfortable. Hope you’ve been feeling well and enjoying your 2nd trimester :) Saw your pic of your new glider – awesome, looks so comfy!
