Insomnia

Last night I woke up at about 1 AM needing to use the restroom, which has become a habit over the past 6 months.  Last night I could not go back to sleep once I was up.  It was the same insomnia that I had during the first trimester.  I wasn't anxious about any particular thing, I was just awake.  After being eluded by sleep for close to an hour and listening to my own very LOUD heartbeat, I decided to get up.  Sarah Graves was awake too and she was hungry.  I thought a snack might help us feel sleepy, but we were both still awake.  I got through my latest issue of Real Simple magazine and still wasn't feeling tired.  Finally, around 4:30 I was a little drowsy and managed to drift off.  It still wasn't good sleep.  I was awake every 20 minutes or so.  Partly because the little girl I am sharing my body with was awake and ready to rock and roll!
Surprisingly, I got up and got going this morning and haven't been too tired.  I am waiting for that afternoon crash that will probably come.  
Please don't let the rest of the pregnancy be without sleep!
