Wide Awake...

Since when did my beloved bed become the most uncomfortable place on the planet? Blech!

I have been up since 2... tossing and turning... (Poor Matt!) I've tried every position imaginable, but to no avail... my hip aches, my knee hurts, my shoulder is tweeked funny, my hand is asleep, my hair is brushing my cheek,... (For crying out loud!) ...the blankets are twisted (Heaven forbid!), my foot is hanging out, the heating pad (yes... I was desperate!) is too hot, no...wait, not hot enough...

Aye carumba! What the heck? I never have trouble sleeping... NEVER! Ask anyone! I can sleep anytime, anywhere in like 2.5 seconds... and through anything! It's one of my talents... I need very little sleep, but I sleep very deeply and very efficiently... usually. Yeah, well not TONIGHT!

Is this another pregnancy thing I haven't had to deal with before? HELP! What to do? I'm desperate... Suggestions welcome... Right now, I'm going to take a hot bath...

Sorry, I don't have any good advice about the sleep. I was going to say you should pull a Troy and nap with the kids during the day but I have a feeling your older ones don't nap anymore!

Your girls weekend looked so fun! I hope you got lots of spa pampering.

I love the picture of your ultrasound. Isn't it amazing how much develops so early on?

Look at me, I'm commenting on your blog! I'm glad we could put aside our differences, thanks for turning the block off my name. :)
Man, I'm sorry you aren't sleeping, that's the worst! I always ended up sleeping on the couch, which was actually quite comfy.

Awww.. Im so sorry, and you dont even have the belly yet to have that uncomfortable edge... I have always had spells of not being able to sleep. So if you figure something out let me know so I know what to do on my next one!

well, are you past the safe date to be taking Ibuprofen? That might help the aches & pains to make the bed more comfy???

One bonus, I'm usually up at 4am, we can always MSN messenger each other at that hour - I know you're thinking, "ooooh, how fun!"

It's a wonderful life! said...

These kind of nights make me crazy. I go to the other spare bedroom and read or write in my journal. I go mad if I lay there and can't fall asleep fast.
GOod LuCk!!!

HI Sara,
I had no Idea you were pregnant. Congrats but I know what you mean about the not sleeping part. Scott & I are finally pregnant after 6 1/2 years of trying. And I have been really sick. I keep hoping it will get better. Good to see your blog.
