Tired mama

I have been so MIA lately. I am so tired. Sleep problems have been a plague this whole pregnancy, but now when sleep issues are expected, they have tripled or worse. I can take a Tylenol PM and sleep wonderfully until 2:30 and then toss and turn and get maybe another 30 to 45 minutes before 6:30. I talked to my DR on my visit Tuesday, and she suggested 1)try a full dose of Tylenol PM instead of one pill 2) if that doesn't work try some Unisome 3)when I can't sleep in bed try the couch or recliner. So last night I took 2 pills and slept great until 3. I tossed in bed for awhile, went to the couch, tossed on the couch for awhile, and fell asleep from 4:30-6:30. That was the best night's sleep I have had in weeks. I feel pretty good today. I was so wiped out yesterday the very thought of logging on and posting was stressful enough to bring tears.

So in light of all that, I am going to keep this short and crash on the couch before Mark wakes up.

I have a date for the C-section. Abby can be born no later than July 26 at 8:00am. I am really getting excited about the new baby.

She is getting big and all of a sudden. I can make out and squeeze some body parts now. I can find a foot or fist or butt. She doesn't like it if I rub her back or butt though. She immediately takes off in a different direction.

Awww... that's so cute. I can't wait till I can feel my baby too.

Glad you got a better night's sleep yesterday, rest as much as you can now because after July 26th you won't have much sleep, lol.

I think Abby should be born July 25th. That's a really good day to be born (in case you haven't guessed, that's my birthday, lol)

How awesome that it is all set!

It sucks that you are having trouble sleeping. I hope the new ideas help!

That is just so neat that you can feel her like that, and tell what she does/doesn't like.
