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!
