Blargh!<br><br>
I was totally exhausted at 10, so I got in bed and fell asleep by 10:30 or so. Maybe 10:45, tops. At 11:45, I woke up to pee, and now it's been an hour and a half and I am so tired I have a headache and I CAN'T SLEEP. I had a snack and listened to the "Peaceful Sleep Now" Hypnobabies track and lay in bed, and I am still wide awake.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: I just want to be asleep. Why am I so awake? Blah. And I'm still hungry but I'm too lazy to get myself another snack, since I ate all the food I kept on the nightstand in case of hunger.<br><br>

Ya know, I did have a dream the other night that I got totally tanked. I was like, "Hey, the baby's almost here anyway, I'm sure that ONE NIGHT of getting drunk out of my mind won't make a big difference," and I got wasted in my dream.

OMG You are too much! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/ROTFLMAO.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rotflmao"> - wasted while pregnant? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I'm up right now and its 511am. My whole family is asleep. I woke up to pee around 4 and couldn't fall back asleep, so I finally came downstairs and got something to eat. This stinks. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">:

I'm up too. Didn't take my cal/mag last night (it makes a difference in my sleep) and I've been up watching really bad TV since just before 4. Had a snack and I think I may go back to bed soon.<br><br>
I just hate lying there not sleeping. And my mom is here (she sleeps with me when visiting) and I don't want to disturb her. And I hate the heater in this house...when it's on, it's stifling and I can't breathe. I'd rather be cold.<br><br>

I'm up now too. I had such a crappy night that on my millionth pee trip it just didn't seem worth it to go back to bed. Now I'm having a huge breakdown because this baby is never going to come out. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">:<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/bawling.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bawl">

I was up almost all night - but I didn't get out of bed in the hopes that I would fall asleep. It was pure torture. Now I have to make my daily 45-60 min commute in heavy traffic and pray I'm awake enough to navigate successfully <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">: Also, I think one of the reasons I couldn't sleep was that I'm catching a nasty cold. I'm already taking garlic, echinacea, and extra vitamin C - what else do I need to digest to get rid of this?! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/sneeze.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sneeze">:<br>
Sorry to be a downer this morning <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I woke up a lot, but was able to fall back to sleep each time. Until 5:00, when I woke up having to pee, but didn't want to get out of bed and disturb Isabel. So I laid there, dozing, until she woke around 5:30.<br><br>
Thankfully, I go to bed with her and am usually asleep by 8:30.

People laugh when I say I think there's a chance I may get more sleep after the baby shows up, but they don't understand exactly how bad the insomnia has been.<br>
I slept more or less through the last two nights, and it was everything I ever hoped and dreamed it could be. It's been a while since I did that.<br>
Ms. Muffin, I was looking at Champagne yesterday. I'm trying to decide what kind to buy for post-labor cheers. It should be a good one, dontcha think? The first few months of pregnancy, I kept on dreaming that I had forgotten I was pregnant and smoked an entire pack of cigarettes, and I'd wake up feeling so guilty.

Me too! Seriously, I am up AT LEAST every hour to pee. Then it's hard to get back to sleep. And then there is the insomnia.<br><br>
Well, from what I've heard, babies can sleep at least an hour at a time, right? I honestly think I may be better off with the baby on the outside.

I EASILY got more sleep after dd was born than during my pregnancy with her- and I had hyperemesis that pretty much kept me in bed all day, every day.

Mmm, champagne. I am just daydreaming about LIQUOR, but champagne sounds lovely. So does a strawberry margarita. Or a mai tai. Or a mojito. I would take all 3. Right now. Edit: 4. That makes 4. Not 3. I are smart.<br><br>
This summer, I had a dream that I took some acid or mushrooms or something and was tripping balls, and then realized that I was pregnant and this would fuck over baby's brain development, and then I had a really baaaaaad trip. I can still remember all the crazy visuals and colors I saw in the dream, and there was this dude with a beard chanting about how I was killing my baby as I was running up and down this spiral staircase freaking out. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: When I woke up, I literally thought I had been on SOMETHING, because it was so f'ed up, and I had to calm myself down from a panic attack telling myself that it was obviously impossible that I had taken shrooms or acid.
