I'm so tired, but my mind just won't shut up and I can't get comfortable! Anyone else in the same miserable boat?
Crunchy wife to my high-school sweetheart, mama to DS (10/23/05) , DS (11/22/07) , DD (3/9/10) , and DS (5/26/12), and three babies in Heaven.
Last night was a "bad" night!! I woke up about every hour last night. Too hot, had to use the bathroom, thirsty, baby kicking by ribs (hard), DH's early morning alarm went off way to early (he works out before I even get out of bed) and it was pointless to try to go back to sleep.
I have to go work in Seattle for a few days and my work told me I could get a hotel room so I don't have to worry about the commute (about an hour each way if I were to commute). I felt bad leaving DH by himself (and left with preparations for his mom's visit) for about 2 seconds but then I got really excited about a comfy hotel bed all to myself with tons of fluffy pillows.
Still recovering from being sick for like the last 3 weeks here. I'm sleeping - but I don't think I'm sleeping well - I wake up every couple of hours and have to change positions, and I'm still exhausted in the morning.
Hope you get some rest soon, mama!
My middle child needs to have a sleep study done, I can't remember if I shared with y'all or not. Anyways they had us originally scheduled for January 19th, and I really didn't like the idea of being 38 weeks and trying to get that done, just in case little man decides to come early. We were able to get in as a standby for cancellations tonight. From everything they were describing, it doesn't sound like a restful night for anyone involved...

LAst night I lay there exhausted looking out the window all night while dh slept, and I couldn't fall asleep. Course, as soon as it got light and he got up to get ready to go out I conked out hard for an hour. It may be partially our small bed but I think it is just plain ole pregnancy insomnia too.
I wake up every morning feeling like I have been hit by a truck. Back in 2003 I fractured a few ribs and even though they are healed, and have been for some time, I think the pressure from the baby pushing on them is causing the major ribcage pain I am feeling. Hurts to lay on either side and when I lay on my back I feel like I am suffocating. So I have to lay on one side till I can't take the pain then flip to the other side. I'd say I flip about every 20 mins. And going from one side to the other is another feat in itself. I usually yelp during the process of turning over because of the pain from my pubic symphasis. On top of it all I think I am trying to get a sinus infection. My 20 month old is liking to get up every couple of hours too. So needless to say, no sleep here! All of this pain is really starting to bum me out. Like to the point of depression. I sit there and cry sometimes because everything hurts so bad. I really wanted to have one more baby but I don't think that's going to happen. I think a 4th pregnancy would literally kill me.
I started dreaming of peanut butter toast early this morning! lol
I started craving tons of milk last week, and, after about a week of decent calcium intake, it is definitely becoming easier to fall asleep, but my sleep schedule is still completely out of whack. Have been sleeping only 2am-6am and then 9am-12pm consistently. So weird!
