Okay sleeping whilst pregnant officially sucks. I have been such a zombie the past few weeks. I seem to fall asleep fine. For some reason I can’t get myself positioned correctly to sleep on my left side. So, I usually start the night on my side like a good girl, on the right. Arm shoved up under my pillow. That lasts maybe an hour or two, I usually wake up with aching hips and an achy rotator cuff (this shoulder thing has been an issue for years, can’t seem to sleep without my arm under my head). So, I flop over to the other side and sleep more on my stomach than my side, I normally shove a pillow under one leg and sleep in the shape of a K. Maybe I should get a body pillow, but I really don’t see it working for me. I never sleep long with the pillows propping up body parts of hugging the pillow. It just feels so hot and cumbersome. I hate it. I normally sleep until Fonzie gets up to go potty, which for the last week has only been once a night! Somewhere between 2-4. But once I get back in bed with him my mind wanders and I am pretty sure I lay awake for 1-2 hours. Maybe I fall in and out of sleep, but I know most nights I see another number at the front of the time before I finally doze off. So, when it comes time to get up at 6:30 am (so I can workout before work) I don’t. I push it and sleep until 7:30 or 7:40 and I have to leave for work at 8. That leaves me groggy and running around like a madwomen. I hate it, it’s such a bad cycle. What to do, what to do. All I know is I am not working out enough and it’s driving me CRAZY. CRAZY, people. I mean it when I say that I will never be pregnant in the winter again if I can help it. At least if it was summer, it would be light out and I wouldn't get into bed at 8pm!
Also, does anyone else find it impossible to worry about what you are supposed to be doing at work when you have such fun things to think about like names and nursery motifs? Or such important things as daycare and if you are coming back to work ? I am pretty much useless anymore! Oh vey.
