9:00 p.m. Really sleepy. Head to bed to read or play on iPhone for a few minutes. Sing to the baby (Favorite song of the moment is South of the Border.) Push around feeling for some kicks.
9:30 p.m. Wiggle around. Prop pillows everywhere. Sound asleep in less than five…
11:30 p.m. Wake up. Stumble to the bathroom.
11:35 p.m. Wiggle around. Readjusting pillows. Groan and moan.
12:15 a.m. Wake up seemingly wide awake. Check email, Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, etc.
12:45 a.m Drift off to sleep. Have weird dreams.
1:30 a.m. Wake up. Stumble to the bathroom.
1:35 a.m. Wiggle around. Readjusting pillows. Groan and moan. Now perfecting the roll-off-the-bed move of the night.
2:15 a.m. Wake up kick the covers off of me. Demand more air. (Victor hides his head under the covers to stay warm.)
3:30 a.m. Wake up. Stumble to the bathroom.
Starting to get hungry. Decide to sleep instead.
3:35 a.m. Wiggle around. Readjusting pillows. Groan and moan. Wake up Victor. Get a back rub before drifting to sleep.
4:00 a.m. Wake up cold. Steal the covers back from Victor.
5:00 a.m. Wake up. Stumble to the bathroom.
Have hunger pains, but ignore them.
5:05 a.m. Wiggle around. Readjusting pillows.
Drift off… kinda… Baby moves like crazy demanding food.
5:30 a.m. Wake up. Stumble to the bathroom.
Gag uncontrollably. May produce bile or mucus. (TMI, I know…)
5:45 a.m. Cook breakfast. Drink milk to keep from getting sick.
6:40 a.m. Catch the bus to school (work). Take a nap on the way there.
Today I explained that my closed-toed shoes don’t fit. This is my latest pregnancy woe. I kinda laugh about it, but I was informed today that I am causing one of my co-workers to never want children. Better for you to know the truth before you go into the situation! I replied. And I believe it. Maybe next time they complain about not sleeping well, I should let them in on this well-kept secret.
I remember Mama saying, “When you have children, you will never sleep the same way again.” No kidding, Mama. I feel like I could have used a warning about my pregnancy too…
