another sleepless night...

I'm beginning to wonder how a pregnant woman can last a day on her feet without sleeping more than an hour or so... yet it's happening! Night, after night. The weirdest thing is by 9am, I'm not really tired anymore. Maybe I'll nap this aft, or just go to bed early tonight, but there is seriously some adrenaline coursing through my veins at this point and i.am.awake.

Last night my stomach was upset and I couldn't figure out if it was just a lot of kicking or something else. The kicking was pretty exciting to watch though, that's right. WATCH. Not feel, watch. My stomach was popping up spontaneously and in different spots each time. So wild. Like a sci-fi movie except real life and a sign of good health!

As fun though as it was, I was awake because of it until about 3am when I finally fell asleep until 4am and then was up again until about 7am and slept until 8:30am. And now I'm wide awake, starting the work day. What is wrong with me? I thought I was much more calm this time around as compared to the other recent all-nighter, but maybe I'm kidding myself. We find out TOMORROW what the sex of MM is and that excited me to no end. Plus we leave for North Africa in exactly 7 days. Lots happening in my life... Just not sleep.


  1. I woke up at 3AM with a SORE STOMACH, too. But I'm not preggo.

    It was SO FUN to feel MM kick last night. Very sci-fi-esque for sure. I WANT TO FEEL IT MORE. I'm also super stoked for the sex because then I can talk to her/him without calling it an it.

  2. Haha me too! But then I'll be tempted to call MM by his or her name that we've picked, and were not planning to do that til August 28th or so!
