JB and I slept in until almost 10am this morning, and I didn’t even attempt to get out of bed for a good 15 minutes or so. I felt it was important to relish what could possibly be our last lazy Saturday in bed for a very long time…
It’s cruel that pregnant women aren’t able to sleep well during the final weeks of their pregnancy because they certainly don’t get quality sleep for the first couple of months after their babies are born. We should be stocking up on good sleep now so that we can tap into our energy reserves later on.
I know I should be thankful that I don’t need to get out of bed six times a night to pee, but I have such a difficult time getting comfortable that I’m just as exhausted when my alarm beeps. Every time I want to change positions I have to wake up to readjust myself and my extra pillows. Not fun! Plus, I sweat through the night from all of the anxiety-ridden dreams I’ve been having.
I miss being able to sleep on my back or my stomach and without body pillows hogging up our king-size bed. I miss sleeping straight through the night… and being able to take sleeping pill if I need one to help me catch up on my zzz’s. Most of all, I miss waking up feeling refreshed and ready to start my day. I am tired of being tired ALL THE TIME.
