OMG! I'm so tired!!!

I didn't sleep well last night, or the night before, or the one before that... In fact, this seems to be the way of things for me atm. If it's not heartburn, it's stress. I swear my head is actively seeking out stuff to stress over, even though I really, REALLY don't want to and normally wouldn't stress over the things I'm stressing over these days.

I'm finding it hard to get to sleep before 1-2am, and then I'm awake again, usually thanks to rowdy kids (incl. Dave here) between 6.30-7am...

In the intervening hours, there's heartburn pain, and a myriad of stressful dreams and nightmares - half the time I'm only half asleep, trapped between being awake and being in a kind of waking dream.

This happens at the end of every pregnancy, and at least this time I'm not also being kept awake by excruiating hip pain. The innerspring mattress on this bed is divine, 1000% on the old futon mattresses I've endured for the past three pregnancies.

But I'm sooooo tired, all the same. And I know that once bubs is here, I'll sleep deeply when I get the opportunity to sleep, I just have to pray this baby doesn't have Luey's early sleep patterns (which were actually not SLEEP patterns, just feeding and screaming patterns)...

OH Sif...you are nearly at the end (and the beginning LOL). I'm sending blessings for a sleeper for you too...I've had one so far, but we've had our moments. I think being a co-sleeper helps so much with this though.
