When I was pregnant with Asher I did not have any trouble sleeping. I was out like a light every night. I could chalk that up to working 15 hour days every day of the pregnancy, but working isn't helping me with this one.
Granted it is a different kind of work. Being a mommy to Asher is not super hard, but I'm working my body A LOT lately. I'm doing some yoga and I had a SEVEN HOUR rehearsal on Saturday where I was dancing like a maniac for at least three of those hours. You would think that my body would be so tired that I would drop like a rock at night, but that is not the case. It takes me a while to fall asleep most nights, and then I wake up every time I switch positions. Then of course, sometimes I wake up to go to the bathroom. If I try not to drink water at night, then I have strong contractions that wake me up anyway. I can't win. And of course, when I don't get great sleep I am not very effective during the day.
Last night I got to sleep at around 12:00. I woke up at 2:45. I couldn't go back to sleep for three hours.
Tomorrow I have a doctor's appointment. I'm going to ask about sleeping pills.
