I am not naive. I know that once Baby is born, there will be plenty of sleepless nights, plenty of 2 a.m. feedings, plenty of crying and whining and fussiness (and not all of it -- or even most of it -- from Baby).

I know all that, but try convincing me of it at 2 a.m. when my hips hurt from the extra weight, my unborn child is kicking me for all he's worth, I can't get comfortable and the S.O. is snoring away like a band saw.

Is this sleeplessness just preparation for when the baby comes or is it just another symptom of my never-ending worry?

I am so grateful that I don't have a full-time job I have to get to every morning. I don't think they'd be getting much productivity out of me at the moment.

*Insomnia - inability to obtain sufficient sleep, especially when chronic; difficulty in falling or stayingasleep; sleeplessness


  1. I think it's (insert your favorite deity here)'s little joke on pregnant women. You think you can save up some sleep before the baby gets here, and then (deity)'s all like, "Nope! I'm gonna make you miserable NOW, sucker!" S/he's kind of mean sometimes.

  2. @Heather, that would be funny if it weren't true. Oh well, better than cussing out my unborn child.

  3. I think it was in honor of times like these that I adopted the mantra: There is plenty of time to sleep when you're dead.

  4. Man, I would be such a bitch if I got that little sleep. Kuddos to you moms everywhere for dealing with it.
