  • sorry hon...nothing you can do..just try and relax is all any of us can advise...look at it this way, you've got some sleepless training in for when baby does get here.

  • I've been having lots of trouble sleeping myself (Getting up to pee, Restless Leg Syndrome, Baby moving, my cat getting hyper right when I want to go to sleep, and just being uncomfortable in general. Sometimes I really do feel like just crying, lol.) There's really not too much you can do about it unfortunately.

    What's been keeping me sane is just the thought that I'm doing it for my daughter. I don't mind not sleeping, as long as she's healthy and keeps growing. I don't need sleep, I need my healthy baby!
