Reasons I'm awake at 3 am

1. Fear another cockroach is crawling on me
2. Olivia is tap dancing furiously on my abdomen and has been for almost an hour
3. Charles in Charge on Netflix on demand obviously wasn't boring enough to put me back to sleep
4. I think I'm hungry but am too tired and too fat and too afraid to step on a cockroach barefoot to get out of bed
5. I can't get comfortable
6. It's hot
Is this my official induction into the third trimester? Maybe after tonight's hazing I'll sleep better......

I wish there was some way I could help you to feel better. I know exactly what you are feeling. This pregnancy has been the complete opposite of the others. There have been times I thought she was going to jump out of my abdomen she was kicking so hard. When you get hungry at night, try keeping a wrapped snack by the bed side. That helps me. As for being hot, go ahead and turn up the air or fan. Being hot seems to make me more miserable then being uncomfortable. If you ever need anyone to talk to in the middle of the night, feel free to call me. Trust me you won't be waking me up. I am up from 3-5am every night and even more for the next 3 months. I'll be here. Good luck getting as much rest as you can. -April B

Oh, I feel your pain. I've been having a fan blow right on my face on high to help with the heat. Even though Brad is freezing to death it's the only way I can survive. But just think...3rd trimester! So soon until we meet miss olivia! :) Then you'll be up all night with her! :)

Those are some good reasons not to be able to sleep. Sorry we missed seeing each other this past weekend.

There are a lot of times that I am hungry & that is why I cannot sleep, I hate that.

BTW - is it too late to vote, on what's in your belly??

It was the same for me practically the first day of my third trimester also. The best thing I can recommend is making up a nice soft spot on the couch or somewhere beside the bed to sleep during those moments. Whenever I can't sleep it is strait to the couch and I am out for at least another hour or two.~ Kelly

Yeah, I was up in the middle of the night eating a raspberry poptart and reading Mommywood. Only a month to go for me!
