It is now 3:35am and this is the second night in the last 3 nights that I haven't been able to sleep at this hour. I have often heard women say they were so uncomfortable the last weeks of pregnancy, but I don't really feel that. I guess I expected the lack of comfort to be the reason pregnant women can't sleep. For me, it is just because my mind won't turn off. I never seemed to have had this problem before, actually most people would have been jealous of my pre-pregnancy sleeping habits. I used to lay down...never remember falling asleep (no matter how early or late it was or how loud it was or how dark or bright the room was)... then i would wake up in the morning refreshed. I never would get up to use the restroom or to get a drink of water. Now, I get up to use the restroom anywhere from 3-7 times in the night and I can't seem to get my mind to sleep. I guess this is the beginning of a new season of life for me in the middle of the night. I am just excited to have a different reason to wake up in the middle of the night. I would rather wake up to a beautiful baby boy than simply wake up to just use the restroom or because my mind won't turn off.
2 weeks from tomorrow I am due to have this baby. Really he could come anytime now and at the latest 3 1/2 weeks from tomorrow... so the count down continues.
