Sleep. Sleep. And More Sleep.

I can’t believe I can sleep as much as I have this weekend. No idea how I’m going to get through the work day tomorrow when all this sleep seemed so necessary over the last could of days. How much you ask?

Well, with naps and night I’ve slept about 12 hours per day on each of the last three days. Tomorrow, I have to get up after 9 short hours and get to work.

I realize that after Bubble comes – I’ll be grateful for 2 or three hours at one time. But these days it seems like I don’t have a choice. Either I get the sleep I need by choice, or it will come for me regardless. (Like at my desk – with my hands on my keyboard – as it did last week.)

I really hope that all I’ve read is true, and that after the first 12 or 13 weeks, sleep isn’t as crucial. Cause I’m not sure this much snoozing is going to work for me in the long term.

Ultrasound Thursday. Hope all is well in there…

  1. I feel ya! I’ve been sleeping at least 13-15 hours PER DAY!!! And sometimes it doesn’t seem to be enough. Other days, I can’t seem to sleep at all. I am hoping it subsides at 12 weeks as well.

    Second trimester is much easier in terms of sleep needs. Third trimester, sleepiness comes back, but it’s a lot harder to sleep. Then again, I’m not the poster child for normal pregnancy.

    And I am someone who REALLY needs sleep and completely feared what I’d be like on less than 7 hours a night. But somehow I survived. There may be some weird hormonal mom thing that kicks in.
