Good Night

It's 8:30 or 9 PM on any given night and I'm ready to turn in for a good night's sleep. I hop into my pajamas, which are just larger than the size I usually wear and the waistband settles on top of my tummy and the pants slide right up my ass. And that's why you don't just buy 'a few sizes larger' for clothes during pregnancy...

I crawl into bed and shut my eyes. Pregnancy makes your skin stretch and feel drier, and it's midwinter, so I'm an itchy mess.

itch. scratch. itch. itch. scratchscratchscratch.

Right side first. *thump*thump*thump*thud*kick*WHACK*

Fine, kid, left side.

Pillow between the legs, under the boobs, under the belly.

*siiigh*

Heartburn. BURNING. BURNING. Ah, subsiding.

itch. Scratch.

*thump*thump*KICK*

AGH, IT'S TOO HOT! - Kick off covers, then try to wad covers into a more ideal belly/boobs/leg support.

itchscratch.

Roll on back... think SCIATIC NERVE SCIATIC NERVE! Pressure on your sciatic nerve in the back sleep position during pregnancy = apocalypse!! Or something like that. Try shoving pillow under on side of the back to provide support/angle.

Back to left side (ideal for blood supply to baby). Husband is LOOOOOOKING at me. Roll to right side to avoid creepy face to face sleeping.

ooh, chilly. Under covers...

Sleep finally shows up... a few hours later.

Have to pee have to pee have to pee. Don't want to get up don't want to get up don't want to get up... agh, get up and go pee.

Aaaaand, repeat.
