It's 2:14 am. I have restless leg. I can't sleep.

That's all. Maybe I'll get another sanwich while I'm up...

It's so frustrating not being able to sleep. I tried to go to bed over an hour ago but had to get up, because I was starving hungry. So, I'm sitting here eating a ham sandwich and drinking a huge glass of ice water.

This must be natures way of preparing us for sleepless nights ahead!

Happily married, busy mom to a houseful :-)

Expecting again early Oct 2014!

I know! I guess it's good that I'm forced to get my sleep in multiple naps so I don't go into labor after being up all day, but geesh - I know I won't get any sleep once the baby comes - why can't we sleep before??:

I keep telling myself that I need to stay rested just in case labor starts, but I think that just makes me more anxious cause then my mind starts racing about wondering how everything will go. I'm kind of a worrier by nature, and it's always worse at night when I'm trying to go to sleep. Then there's getting up to pee every hour, and now the last couple of days I'm so hungry all the time that I have to get up and eat something which makes me want to drink more water, then pee more.... Ugh.. it's a vicious cycle!

At least we're nearing the end, and it'll all be over soon.

I can't stand the restless leg thing, it drives me INSANE! I usually lie there trying to fight it, but everyone once in a while I have to get up or else wake everyone else up with my frustration! I'm thrilled that I haven't dealt with leg cramps this pregnancy, but the restless leg is almost worse!

I've also been craving ICE like crazy, just munching it away. It's the only intense craving I've been having, so I figure it's not a big deal, but it makes me wonder what I'm missing?!!!!! I think I'm going to grab myself another glassful right now
