What Nights Are Like at Six Months Pregnant

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…

  1. Hahaha…you’re a mess. And Victor is long suffering. It’s a good thing you didn’t marry Nate! 🙂 I thought I warned you that good sleep went out the window long before baby made his/her grand entrance? Just another fun element of pregnancy that I had already forgotten about until you just reminded me.

    Miss you and love you. Sing to that baby from his/her Tia Lisa.
