Yawn!

Of all the miserable aches and pains of late pregnancy, I think the worst of all is the insomnia I always develop. The night before last, I slept from 10:30 to 1 and from 5:30 to 8:00. That was definitely not enough sleep. Last night I fell asleep at 8, but woke at 9:30 and didn't fall back to sleep until 1. At that point I actually slept until 6:30 or so.

I'm definitely feeling rather miserable, sorry for myself and cranky. It's not a good thing. I don't particularly like being around me at the moment and I'm just trying not to take it out on everyone else.

Is that last sentence an allusion to Dwight Yoakam, or just a happy coincidence? I'm thinking of the song "If I had a choice, I'd avoid me, too".

thinking of you! isn't it a shame that you get the least sleep when you need it most?

I got to thinking about you last night, and can totally relate to your mood and physical self right now. That end-of-the-pregnancy is so maddening. One thing I got such a rush out of when the 'day' arrived for each child's birth was looking at the little outfit the baby would wear after they were born. Guess up to that moment, I was always in denial that there really was a baby causing all the stir. Truly I'd look at the midwife, seeing her fingering the little nightgown wondering all the time why she was holding such a thing. Like, did I really expect a child to wear it? Not really!
Take care and put your feet up. :)

I had the same problem when I was pregnant. I feel your insomnia pain. No fun.
I hope you catch up on your zzz's this weekend.

I'm still a few weeks behind you so the insomnia comes and goes but it does seem like a cruel joke!
Prop your feet up if you have a minute and grump away!
Speaking of being grumpy...I have to go adjust my attitude so I can be pleasant with my inlaws all weekend.
