Tick Tock Tick Tock...that is what I'm listening to right now -- that and the wind whipping outside my living room windows. I CAN NOT SLEEP!
If there is one thing that I am not enjoying about my pregnancy, it's this sleep thing. For the most part, my pregnancy has been easy so far. Oh sure, I don't exactly enjoy watching the numbers on the scale increase almost daily or seeing my butt and my arms get bigger and bigger or how I have to grunt and heave to sit down on the floor, but compared to others, I've had it easy.
But, this night thing is really getting to me. I can pretty much expect to wake up every hour and either need to pee or turn over in bed to TRY to get more comfortable. And then there are nights like tonight. I got up and peed, I blew my nose, I turned over so many times in bed that I'm surprised The Colonel didn't kick me out. Still, I'm awake and not comfortable - and there are 3+ more months of this!
I finally got out of bed and came to the living room, where the wind is much louder and the blankets not as comfy, but I just couldn't lie in bed staring at the clock projecting on the ceiling any more. Of course, when 6:30 comes and I need to get up, I'll be exhausted...but for now, I'm wide awake.
I've caught up on all my bloglines, checked my email, now what?? I'm kinda hungry...maybe I'll go get a snack. Or maybe I'll turn on the TV. Or maybe I'll just lie here and stare at the ceiling in the living room...
