I am over at my neighbor’s house today (well yesterday by the time you read this) watching the kids so she can get some house work done. I swear this lady is awesome. She has been a huge help to me in the last year, even more so now that I am pregnant. So being able to help her out today has made me feel very good. Kind of like I am able to repay her back for all the kindness she has showed me. Her boys have been a big help today. They cleaned most of the house to help out and relieve her of any stress she may have had over it not being clean enough.
I have to say I am so tired. My sleep pattern is completely messed up. I totally feel like a zombie today. For the past week my body has been shutting down at 8pm and waking back up between midnight and 2am. I then end up staying awake until 6/7am before crashing again until noon or 1pm and starting my day. So last night I made myself stay awake for as long as possible. I only wanted to stay up till midnight, except that didn’t work. I caught my second wind and ended up staying up until almost 7am. My poor husband stayed up with me too. By the time we went to bed I never really fell asleep. I “slept” for 8 hours in a half awake half asleep state. I think this is more exhausting than going to sleep at 8pm.
Any other mama’s have this happen to you? Please tell me this is a pregnancy thing and I will eventually get over this?
