Ok so the past few weeks I've been starting to get a little heartburn here & there. Only this past week has it been REALLY affecting my sleep. About 2 weeks ago I'd wake up with a little pain; no biggie - nothing a little Tums or Pepcid won't handle. Well, TONIGHT I've been trying to sleep for FOUR HOURS and it's not so much painful as it is, well, GROSS because, well.... it's making me throw up.
:( The second I lay down it hurts, so I take a tums. Pain subsided. Then I just keep swallowing and swallowing and swallowing, and my breathing is labored because it constantly feels like I'm about to have one of those giant painful hiccups that accompanies heartburn, and I'm trying to prepare myself for it. It never comes. Finally I doze for a second and I wake up violently because I'm choking on a little spit up. (GROSS!) This happens over and over and about an hour ago I just had full-blown thrown up... twice. It REALLY sucks because tomorrow is my baby shower and I want to get some sleep so I can prepare for a big day.
I guess my sleeping days are officially over - baby's not getting any smaller so the heartburn won't get any better, and after she's born, that's when the REAL sleep deprivation begins. *sighhh*... Goodbye wonderful rest!!!! We'll meet again someday!
