This business of being pregnant sure is tiring. I haven't had a full night's uninterrupted sleep in a while now. Be it a bathroom stop or just due to being really uncomfortable, at some point during the night, I have to get up. Now this is completely alien to me as I usually sleep through the night (and then some!) so having uninterrupted sleep is really playing with my system.

Sure, I agree with what other people say in that it's my body's way of naturally getting me used to waking up at night for baby. But that doesn't mean that I have to like it one bit!

And its totally wrecked some of the things I enjoy doing - like waking up early, during the weekend making myself a hot cuppa and then curling up  on the sofa with a good book. Nowadays, the thought of waking up early (besides having to go to work) is like pulling teeth...and curling up with a good book is not an option. By the time I've curled up somewhere comfortable, and read a couple of pages of my book, I start to nod off and fall asleep.

So no proper sleep...no enjoyment of reading a book (besides the fact that the pregnancy is affecting my eyesight) and no way around this when bub comes out either! And this is only the beginning! So how do the people with kids and a job and their own business do everything anyway? I'm struggling as it is just to stay awake!

Let me know when you find out their secret, okay? I'm just going to take a littl' nap now *yawn*

Moo : try sleeping on a elevated angle. Stack 2 or pillows upwards in a upsidedown v-shape so the weight is not pushing down on your spine and sleep like that.
