I figured since I was up at an ungodly hour, I would write a blog post. I am 26 weeks today, which means that the 3rd trimester is swiftly approaching. Depending on who you ask, the 3rd trimester begins at either 27 or 28 weeks. Which means I am a week or two away from being in the home stretch! Sometimes it still seems surreal that we have made it this far, but I am so very grateful! I can't wait to meet our little turkey in December!
I am also assuming that this pregnancy induced insomnia is preparing me for feeding said turkey in December. Before I got pregnant, I had absolutely no trouble sleeping. I could sleep any time and any place. Now sleeping is a pain in the arse. I can't get comfortable. I have to pee 2 billion times a night. I have wretched heartburn. I'm itchy. And the most fun reason of all for not sleeping, is for absolutely no reason at all! The jerk faces my husband works for decided to call him at 4:30 this morning to see if he could come into work today. One would think that they could have called him last night, considering it was well known that they would be understaffed today. But no. They wait until 4:30 in the freaking morning to call. So of course the phone ringing wakes me up, and try as I might, I am unable to fall back asleep. And as I'm laying there trying to force myself back to sleep, all I can think is that if they do this when the baby is here, I'm going to kill someone. He will be sleeping in a bassinet in our room, so their calling at horrible hours will definitely wake him up. And then, as previously stated, I will have to kill someone.
Unfortunately it also seems that my nausea and motion sickness issues are coming back. It is definitely not as bad as it was the first trimester, but I am totally not happy that I'm having issues again, period. I think that part of it has to do with the fact that my stomach has been squished and is now hanging out with my lungs. I've tried to eat smaller portions, but I don't think I'm doing a good job. I eat until I feel full, but by the time I feel full, I've eaten too much. And then I'm miserable for hours after. So if anyone has any suggestions on learning when I need to stop, you would be my hero!!
And speaking of eating and being miserable, I am starving now! Would it be wrong to go force my husband to get up and take me to get Panera for breakfast? I mean, it is 7am. And it is kind of his fault I woke up and couldn't go back to sleep in the first place. If I can't sleep, he shouldn't be able to either. Right?
