At 34 weeks, I’m nearly 8mos pregnant and man am I feeling it. I’ve been having some trouble sleeping, but last night was the worst. Exhausted from not sleeping well the night before, I went to bed at the ridiculously early time of 8:30pm. That was the best part of last night’s sleep.
I woke up at midnight, hot, sweaty, thirsty, and overall uncomfortable. I went to the bathroom to see if that would help, then drank a bit of water. I got back in bed and lay there, dozing a bit here and there but not really sleeping. I know I looked at the clock at something like 1:45am. At some point, I kicked off my sleep pants (still hot) and got up for a bottle of water (still really thirsty) that I rapidly guzzled. I went back to bed and managed to snooze, I think, as I didn’t see the clock again until about 4am or so. I tossed and turned and half dozed a little more, but at 5am, I gave up and went into the family room, hoping the change of scenery would help me nap.
Nope. Within a half hour my 3yro son was up, and though my husband attended to him, there was no rest for me.
I tried taking a nap this afternoon and got maybe 10min or so on the couch. When I moved to the bedroom, I just couldn’t get comfortable and never managed to really sleep.
Now, at 6:25pm, I feel like I’m drugged.
