joining the insomnia crew
it's 4:30 am, I've given up trying to lie quietly waiting for sleep, I guess the day has begun
I'm 17 weeks and have lots of difficulty staying asleep between about 1 or 2 am and 5 am, this started right from the beginning
the weather isn't helping, yesterday was 42C till late afternoon and hasn't dropped below high 20s tonight with a strong HOT dry wind bringing smoke from all the bushfires further north, seems like a huge chunk of south east Australia is in flames, it's very unsettling
yes it's good training for new-baby-hours but it's debilitating!
re limiting drinks - I find this counterproductive as I wake parched if I don't keep slugging down water, but it is midsummer
mtn mama - we are often advised to avoid lying flat on the back from mid-preg onwards so as to not compress major vessels behind the baby, sounds like your yoga instructor disagrees?
