I wanted to start school on Monday. I've been staying up so late, and sleeping so late so I tried to fix that. Sunday I went to bed at 12:30, which isn't too bad for me. Then I woke up to take care of my four year old at 4:30 and couldn't go back to bed! I took a nap Monday morning 8:30 till 12 noon. Oh my goodness. SO much for starting school. I felt terrible yesterday, so out of it and tired. So, last night I was exhausted, and I was worried I'd take a late night nap, and ended up falling asleep around 9pm. My 4 year old woke me up at 3! Now, here I sit at four thirty in the morning. I just ate some toast, so I'm hoping maybe it will help me rest.
Thank you for letting me vent about my weird, and terrible sleep patterns. I like to think of this as my body's way of getting ready for having a newborn.
we use Building Foundations For Scientific Understanding. It's very adaptable While I sometimes wish for something that I could just 'open up and have every thing laid out for me word for word' I've been pretty happy with the book, and it's results.
my breasts have been achy, and my nipples sensitive this whole pregnancy. This week they've taken things to a whole new level. I have to shield them from shower spray. It's terrible. I can't wait to start nursing, and put all this build up behind me. This is my fourth time with babies, and I've never experienced such sensitivity before.
I'm 19 weeks, and 5 days today. My midwife comes in about 4 hours. She's not going to be pleased about my sleep. I think it's funny how each of my midwives seem to have a "thing" that they focus on. This midwife definitely focuses on sleep, my last midwife focused on food. I am super excited to hear my little boy's heart beat. Thursday I'll see my OB. I see her once a trimester to check on my thyroid, although I'm sure she wishes she had more input. And on Friday we go to our anomaly scan. I'm sure everything is going to be great, and healthy. I also have a sense of paranoia that I can't possibly have 4 perfectly healthy babies, and that something bad is going to happen. I have to let that fear go.
much love ladies!
