Sleepless Nights

I've always had occasional trouble sleeping. I have trouble shutting my mind off and letting my body relax enough to sleep. There have been nights when I don't fall asleep until 4 or 5 in the morning. It gets rather annoying.

Thankfully, since I've been pregnant I haven't had hardly any trouble sleeping! I can fall asleep anywhere in about 5 minutes. It's been great. I've been able to experience that feeling of being so tired I'm asleep before my head hits the pillow. Lovely, sweet sleep.

Until last night...

I tossed and turned, physically and mentally. My body was exhausted, but my mind wasn't ready to sleep. Around 1 AM, I got up and decided I was hungry. So I had my first "crazy-pregnant-lady-food-moment." I ate an entire can of fruit cocktail followed up by an oatmeal cream pie. I was really wanting some of the jalapeno cheddar Pringles I bought at the grocery store, but I was tired by the time I got done eating the entire can of fruit cocktail. I washed it down with glass of ice water, made a couple trips to the bathroom, and slipped off into peaceful sleep. p

The oatmeal cream pie sounds yummy.

Sleeping is pretty hard to do especially when rolling over means a 5 point turn. knees. hips. belly. head. wiggle. I wonder that I can get any sleep between switching from my right side to my left.

I hated those restless nights! Hope you don't have too many of them!

Elizabeth: A 5 point term is a good way to describe it - - I think I'm learning to move less in my sleep. It's just too much work!

Kerry: I've been having more girl dreams lately, so maybe you will be right! :)
