Over the last few weeks, I have had the unfortunate experience of numerous sleepless nights…..and baby isn’t even here yet!
Between Baby Ellie being extremely active, the contractions, the pain in my pelvis and the whole being oddly shaped at the moment and finding it impossible to find a comfortable position to sleep in I am lucky if I am clocking 3 hours of actual sleep each night.
I also tend to sleep better when the Alex is home because then I can use his body to get comfortable too. The bad part of that is that I am lucky if I get to sleep next to him 2 nights a week given his work schedule.
Needless to say….I am tired.
Did I mention that the heartburn and the acid reflux doesn’t help things either?
I am looking forward to this pregnancy coming to an end soon.
I find it much more rewarding to lose sleep because I am up snuggling my little one, feeding her or changing her diaper.
As things get closer to the end I am getting more and more excited to meet her.
And I am not alone.
All of the kids are super excited as well.
Alexander cannot wait to be a big brother and was really excited to try on his big brother shirt I made him tonight. He is looking forward to actually kissing and hugging Ellie and not my belly anymore.
This weekend, everyone in the family had a chance to have a little belly time with Ellie. I am happy to report that she successfully punched/kicked each of them and she did it quite well.
This little lady packs quite the bunch.
Although I have been experiencing all of these sleepless nights, I have been taking advantage of it. I have had the pleasure of watching quite a few movies without anyone interrupting me.
I have scratched The Switch, Due Date, Friends with Benefits, and now onto Going the Distance. I have also managed to clear everything off of the DVR that I have been letting add up.
Oh and tonight I had the chance to FINALLY color my hair and make all of the gray go away.
Here’s hoping that tomorrow night I have the time to straighten my hair!
