Sleep?

Last night was the worst night of sleep that I’ve had so far.  I think that I got a total of 3 hours of sleep the whole night, and the rest was spent tossing and turning and going to the bathroom.  I think the biggest culprit was that I just couldn’t get comfortable.  My back and/or hips hurt no matter what position I was in, or how many pillows I stuffed underneath me.

I feel miserable this morning.  This is a new level of tired for me.  You know you’re tired when you have trouble staying awake on your drive into work.  Hopefully I’ll be able to wake up soon and subsequently start to feel better.

I kept hearing throughout my pregnancy that in my third trimester I would be feeling even more exhausted than I did in the first trimester.  At the time I didn’t see how that was possible.  Now I know better, and for all others out there, it is incredibly true.  The bright side to this though is that I only have +- 4 weeks left of pregnancy and then I’ll get to know a whole new level of exhaustion that I’ve never experienced before.  To be honest though, I’m looking forward to that.

  1. Yea that’s totally not fair. I’m not sure why the female body was made so that you’re totally and completely exhausted before the arrival of the baby, only to deal with 4-8 weeks of forced insomnia. How was that a good idea?
