Today was a very long day. It's not easy to go to work and do all that is needed to be done on a Monday when super exhausted.
I didn't sleep well at all last night. It's the worst night of sleep so far this pregnancy.
I went to bed around 10:30pm and was up at least 3 times by 3am, and then a few more times after that. For one thing, I was very warm. I'd wake up all hot and uncomfortable. It was hard to sleep with my pillow between my knees because it made my legs hot, but it was uncomfortable to remove it. I thought about moving to the couch in the living room, as that room seemed a little cooler when I wondered about getting a drink of water and wondering how I was going to get any sleep. But, since I had to be up for work, I didn't make the switch in the middle of the night… it would have been too much work to deal with making sure I had an alarm clock in the living room that I would hear.
The other part of my restless night was babygirl. She was moving and kicking strongly enough to wake me up! I mean, it was awesome that during the day on Sunday Brian was able to finally feel her kick…. but I didn't think that'd mean she'd keep me up all night! As I first was dozing off, she was moving and rockin' my belly that I think she rocked my body because I woke up startled – I thought I was rolling off the bed. Boy, was she active throughout the night though. I suppose it's not a new thing, I just didn't feel her as easily as I do now.
I managed to catch a nap before my evening snack, and hopefully I'll be able to sleep better tonight. I know sleep is supposed to be a bit more difficult in the 3rd trimester, which I'm fast approaching… but I figured it'd still be all right for at least another month!
