Things That Keep This Pregnant Lady Up at Night...

Sleep is a vain effort these days. Here are a list of things that keep me awake at night:

  1. My tiny bladder which is being further compressed by a ~7 pound baby. (I usually have somewhere between 4-8 bathroom breaks a night...usually one an hour).
  2. Braxton Hicks which lately are seeming more and more like the real deal.
  3. Heartburn.
  4. Mackenzie's acrobatics in between aforementioned Braxton Hicks.
  5. The Cicadas in my backyard.
  6. The tiny little frogs that chirp all night long.
  7. My husband's gotten worse in the last week. I slept on the couch Tuesday night.
  8. The little, yappy dogs that live in the house behind ours and like to bark at our fence line. --Not gonna lie. I've had some pretty terrible thoughts on how to resolve this problem. I wouldn't actually follow through with any of them, but a girl can dream...if she could actually fall asleep over the barking.-- 
Things that will keep me up in the coming weeks:
  1. Numbers 5 through 8 in the above list.
  2. A sweet, little baby girl who will be adjusting to life outside my tummy. 
  3. Possibly a big sister who can't sleep through her new sister adjusting. 
I'm so excited! I have about 18 days to go...

I'm going to go take a nap now.

  1. You're getting close to your due date! I understand about the snoring, I end up in another room all the time so I can sleep.
