So, it's 10 minutes til 5 am and I am wide awake...on a holiday weekend. And I've been wide awake since about 4, when I should be sleeping in or at least not waking up until the sun streams through my windows. Is anyone else having trouble with sleep?
I have always been the type of person who could fall asleep within 5 minutes of hitting the pillow and sleeping straight through the night with no interruption. I have always been a morning person, so waking up early is nothing new, but now I wake up 2-3 times a night and have a lot of trouble falling back to sleep. Maybe it's just an overactive mind. This morning I dreamed that it was the day I'm supposed to get my u/s. (Now, in real life the mid-wife told me that I need to show up on time because the u/s technician will not see me if I am late.) So, in my dream, things kept coming up at work, and I couldn't leave on time and I was late and really, really mad because I just want to see this little one already! So, I tried to fall back to sleep and almost made it a few times, but now here I am typing up a book because I have nothing better to do at 5 am.
I have found that napping during the day seems to keep me up more at night, so I've stopped napping for the most part, but yesterday I dozed off. Oops. I guess my body is just preparing me for all the sleepless nights ahead.
