I really feel like writing today but can't. I honestly can not keep my eyes open. I've gone long spurts in the past of not sleeping but never pregnant - it's a been a week of no sleep. I feel like I'm drowning and am unable to reach the surface. I look like I've aged ten years due to the bags under my eyes. And I thought it was only supposed to be like this after you have the baby!
The baby is moving around a lot. She is very active and it always makes me smile. No matter how tired I am, one little kick makes it all worth it. Yesterday I was talking (okay more like complaining to my mom) and I felt her kicking so I looked down at my belly. There before my very own eyes was my belly moving. It was fascinating! Guess how productive I was at work yesterday after seeing that!
Last night I took a benedryl as per noted by the doc, laid down in my big comfy bed in between my gigantic U-shaped pillow and tried my best to sleep. As soon as I got comfortable, I swear that baby moved up into my lungs! I felt this enormous pressure by my lungs and couldn't take a deep breath. I sat up quickly and she slid down, literally, breaking the pressure. So bizarre!
(wow I just fell asleep for a minute there). Tonight I'm planning to go to be early - or so I hope. It's going to be a long weekend for this mamma if I don't get any sleep still. I hope I have something more meaningful to write about next week. I do know some people read my blog and I'm grateful for that. So thanks to my loyal readers.
