I woke up this morning around 2:30 am. After a trip to the potty, I was unable to go back to sleep. Instead of tossing and turning I decided to get up am move around in hopes of feeling sleepy again. For two hours I organized the cabinets in the guest bathroom making room for Ellie's bath stuff, as well as eating a snack and straightening up the living room.

Brandon's alarm went off at 4am to go to the gym, but he chose to go back to sleep on the couch. Now I'm back in bed trying to sleep again. : / I haven't had trouble sleeping in a month, and I hope this doesn't become a pattern. I know I'm going to be tired at work tomorrow!

In news about my ligament pain (RLP)... I took it easy all day yesterday. I called Dr. Radbill on Saturday evening and he told me to stay off my feet for the duration of the weekend. I couldn't bare missing church yesterday, but I sat through worship and didn't pick up any if the babies during nursery. I laid around all afternoon making bows for Ellie, but my belly still tears and aches when I get up.

Someone had donated more maternity items to me, and in that was a maternity support band. I tried it on last night and it felt great! I fell asleep with it in last night and my back felt amazing. I plan on wearing it more often so help with the RLP and back pain.

Well, I should try to get some rest now so I'm not dragging anymore than usual at work today.


  1. What a rough week you are having. I sure hope it starts improving. Thinking about you!

  2. RLP is horrible. I actually had that when I had two large cysts, one was 9 cm and the other 7 cm on the ovaries. I can only imagine how it must be for you being pregnant.

  3. Insomnia is terrible during pregnancy! I had to take a lot of Tylenol pm just to sleep. I was nervous about it, but my Dr assured me it was fine. If it becomes a recurring problem, you should ask your Dr about it--growing a human is hard and you need to make sure to get sleep!
