I've never had trouble sleeping before. I'm not sure how all of you people out there deal with it, because it sucks big time!
For the past while I wake up in the middle of the night and am just awake. I lie there tossing and turning for hours and hours and it's miserable.
The worst part is it's not a pregnancy thing I don't think. Physically at 33 weeks I'm feeling better than I did a couple of months ago (knock on wood). I keep thinking this is some cruel joke and keep waiting for it to go away. So far so good there.
But mentally. Mentally things are a little different (and I'm not afraid to admit it). Life is so crazy right now I wake up and cannot shut my brain off. Last night I woke up at 3am and decided to have a midnight snack. I think I finally fell asleep at like 6am just to be woken up by my blaring alarm an 1/2 hour later. Lovely.
Does anyone have any good sleep tricks they want to share? I've tried sleeping CD's. The problem isn't usually falling asleep, I can do that just fine. It's staying that way is where the issue is. Sleep deprivation is making me pretty desperate, so I'll try just about anything at this point. Troubled sleepers of the world, help me out!
Waiting for James to arrive!
