I think that one of the worst things you could wish on someone is insomnia. It has been the battle that I have been facing lately. I have always had sleeping issues and Ambien has been one of my best friends for a long time now. Unfortunately the Ambien is out the window now that I am pregnant and sleeping at night has been a huge problem. I have never been more tired in my whole life. All I want to do during the day is nap but I don't let myself because I am scared of being up all night. The funny thing is, it doesn't really matter if I nap during the day because no matter what, I can't sleep at night. It is like we turn off the lights and my mind starts spinning. I can definitely think myself into a tizzy. Today I am SUPER sleepy so I am hoping against hope that I can sleep tonight. I have a doctor's appointment on Thursday so I am hoping that perhaps the doc can shed some light on what I can do but since she is so strict, I'm thinking she is going to tell me to gut it out. And what is up with having to pee so many times during the night. Really? Three trips to the bathroom a night? Not cool. Off to cook dinner! Before I doze off on the couch.
