Sleepless in Concord

Yea, that would be me. My contraction may not be forming any type of pattern by my lack of sleep sure is. Every other day since Saturday night I am waking up between 2-4am & I can't go back to sleep. I just lay there wishing or sometimes crying trying to get myself back to sleep. I even take Tylenol PM each night before I go to bed but its almost as if it wears off & I wake up. Dr. Moore offered me Ambien a few weeks ago when I had that really bad week but I declined & told him it was a rare occassion for me to feel bad & not sleep. Tomorrow I just might have to ask Dr. Schneider for something, since last night was another sleepless one. I have even resorted to taking a second dose of Tylenol PM when this occurs which does help me go back to sleep but then I still feel terrible the next day. Last night I told Chris I felt like I may be getting the flu & hopefully its just because I am so tired & that is why my entire body aches.

There is one bright side to this story & its that I am thankful I am not working through the end of my pregnancy, especially since I am not sleeping. Our dear Lord does work in mysterious ways. I truly believe he is watching over Emma & I.

Mom always said that the lack of sleep is your body trying to get your brain ready for the sleepless nights that are coming up! But, you should take some Ambien. I did in the hospital and it was the best sleep ever. Your body could use it - so could your nerves!

Mom and I said that perhaps it was a good thing that you are home now. Emma is the most important thing, and at least you can rest and get ready for her!

Beverly took Ambien & loved it. She has even offered to give me some but I will just bring it up at my 38 week appointment tomorrow & see what he says.
