Insomnia & Other Loveable Side Effects of Pregnancy

So, it's about 3:30 am....the body and brain are both exhausted, but they both refuse to give up and go back to sleep. The middle of the night bathroom runs have been in full force for a while now (this baby seems to like sitting on my bladder more than John did). However, the insomnia that follows the trip to the bathroom has just recently kicked in. So - I find myself updating the blog at the crack of dawn. Really, let's be honest, it's the middle of the night.

John has taken to sleeping through the night again. Let's hope this is a trend that sticks this time since in about 2 months we'll have a little one who isn't the least bit interested in sleeping at night. We've been putting him down between 8:30 and 9....he's been sleeping until 6:45 or 7. We consider this a success. I personally think he'll sleep even better if we get past allergy season and he can actually breathe at night. Right now he sounds like he's drowning in snot all night long.

We're still waiting to sell the house in NC. No real prospects recently. We call our real estate agent regularly but she claims the market is just slow. Unfortunately, squeezing 4 family members into one bedroom in my parents already crowded house isn't going to work - So we are planning on moving into a rental house at the end of the month. It's not the ideal situation (we'll be paying a mortgage and rent) but it will work until the house sells and give us enough room for our expanding family. Luckily, we're renting from some friends of the family so they are sympathetic to our situation.

Well, time to try to fall back asleep. More updates later!
