I just have to laugh right now: Pregnancy insomnia.
As if my day/night wasn’t bad already, now I can’t sleep. And I didn’t even take a nap today. Grrr.
Let me elaborate for you:
I didn’t eat dinner because I wasn’t hungry, but I did have to take my prenatal vitamins, so I had a bowl full of grapes. I fell asleep on the couch around 11pm and my sweet husband came down, kissed me and my belly, and then put me to bed. I woke up around 1am to go to the bathroom (gotta love how many times a pregnant woman wakes up in the middle of the night to pee).
I had a hard time going back to sleep because I was hungry. I got up, had some toast, and then went back to bed to try to go to sleep. Yeah, right. I stayed in bed until 3am, which is when Tarzan came to bed. I decided that I didn’t want to keep him up by complaining and tossing and turning, so now I’m in the living room watching TV. The Jetsons to be specific. After all, nothing else is on at 3:47am.
I’m so annoyed right now. I was so excited to go to sleep so that I could end this day and wake up tomorrow and have a better day. Now I have pregnancy insomnia and I’m stuck watching cartoons.
What a crazy day/night it’s been! Maybe I should get off my laptop – I’ve heard that computers keep you awake and that’s the last thing I want. I just want to sleep, so on that note, good night and sleep tight! (I sure hope I can!)
If anyone has/had this problem when they are/were pregnant, please share your tips with me!
