Mr. Sandman

Have you seen him? If you have, could you please, please, please, pretty PLEASE send him my way?

I have been going to sleep around 3-4am. Getting up every hour and twenty minutes to pee. Then I can't get comfortable. So I read. Get thirsty. Drink half a bottle of water, and the cycle repeats.

Good news is that Sean bought me a recliner. I have yet to try it at night.

Bad news is that I have to get up with Alice. Lately she has been getting up a little after 8. Sometimes 9. So I'm getting maybe 4 hours of sleep.

I realize most of this is my body getting prepared for the baby, but really?! Could I get a little more sleep? I've even tried Unisom, but that doesn't seem to work very well. Well it works in making me sleepy, but not at helping or keeping me asleep.

I tried to nap with Alice today. I'm not kidding when I say that she would lie down, wait until I started to drift off, and then get up and run off. So it would take me a few minutes to drag myself up and get her. And we went through this a couple of times. I finally gave up. And wouldn't you know it...she fell asleep! Which means she won't be ready for bed anytime soon. Boo! I'll be so glad when this week is over, and Sean is home.

Oh, and I know I said I would do Alice's 18 month post, but that will have to wait a day or so. Sean didn't grab the paperwork with all of her stats when we were leaving. And I didn't see or hear how tall she is or how much she weighs. All I know is she is in the 76th percentile for height and 30-something for weight. So I'll try to pick that up tomorrow.

In the meantime, if you see Mr. Sandman please send him my way!

Oh, not being able to sleep is awful. I hope it gets better soon.

Horray for the recliner! That is where I spent every night of the last 3 weeks of my first pregnancy. I hope you are able to get some rest SOON!
