So I've Been Up Since 2:30AM....Midpregnancy insomnia anybody? - Page 5

post #81 of 88

Ugh, me too!  I've been awake in the 3 o'clock hour until I force myself back to bed an hour or so later....and it's totally messing with me!  I can't stay awake during the day!  (thankfully, I work for myeself/from home)- but still!  I am a crabby mama incapable of pulling dinner together every day. I"m so over it!  I'm hoping to get in to the chiropractor's office tomorrow, hopefully that will help!  Thanks for letting me vent ;-)

Ever since my mom found out I want a UC, she's been bugging me about risk risk risk and the other night, when I was at her house, visiting/getting my son from her, she keeps going on and on to the point that I end up dreaming about all the risks and I tossed and turned and only got 3 hours. Ugh!

Ick... I had a miserable night's sleep ... irked.gif  I had a migraine when I went to bed ... and it woke me up about every hour in the night because my head hurt so much ... :(  I hope it stays away, it seems to have gone around 5am this morning, although I feel like it might be back to bother me today...

I feel your pain, Autumnshades. Gotta love those hormones messing up our heads (not).

I.ve had a touch of pg insomnia for awhile, but last night was the first night I admitted defeat and got up. I'm only on week 29, I can't take this for another 11 wks or so :/

But I probably should go back and see her for a few more adjustments before the baby is born. I do feel better when I see her and I do sleep great afterward! I know it's especially important in this last trimester to get things aligned for childbirth. I'll add that to my list of calls to make tomorrow! thumb.gif

 

I feel you on the financial piece....I am a little sad to see our savings account go down down down after we worked so hard to build up a nest egg....but I guess that is what it is there for. The hospital coinsurance will be our biggest expense....like $2K - $3K for a vaginal delivery! Plus $500 for a doula...$300 for childbirth classes....plus plus plus! I guess I just have to trust God will provide! My husband just started a new job too, but thank god is doing really well so far....still it is commission based so that is a tiny bit stressful, but I am ok with it now. I think at the end of the day it is the best thing for our family, and honestly I feel like in life any sense of security we have can crumble at a moments notice b/c you never know what can happen.

Well my nightmares subsided (for the time being?) but now I have a new sleep disturbance, lol. Gah! duh.gif It's so random and weird... I have started kicking my right leg hard in my sleep and it gives me a charlie horse and pulls my round ligament muscle on the right side so bad I'm in excruciating pain for a little bit. Ouch!!! I think I'm getting cramping in that leg now and that must be why I suddenly kick unconsciously in my sleep. I haven't gotten too much leg cramping during the pregnancy but noticed it a few times lately when I've woken up to go to the bathroom. Leg cramps are no joke! I'm a baby when it comes to that kind of thing. That's one of those discomforts I get so annoyed with easily... You'd think menstrual cramps would be worse to me, but nope - leg discomfort drives me up a wall. lol. I give women a lot of credit if they manage to have frequent leg cramping and sleep throughout their pregnancy!

Joanie, the leg kick might be from lack of sleep. I used to do that not long after my son came. I wasn't used to not being able to sleep and my arms would jerk or my foot would kick involuntarily. It's a nerve thing because you need more sleep. Naptime, anyone? sleepytime.gif
