I'm having the weirdest sleeping patterns. Every night after I pick the kids up and get home from work I'm tired and if I sit in my favorite chair I can very easily doze off. Then after I put the kids to bed I go to bed but I normally wake up around 3-3:30 with a ton of energy with the nesting in full gear but I try to avoid going into my kids rooms to put away laundry at 3AM (even though they're both heavy sleepers ) then I get tired again around 5AM and want to sleep until 10AM but having to get up at 6:30 for work kind of puts a damper on that. I don't know why I'm waking up at 3 and this didn't happen until about a week and a half ago.
I'm also incredibly irritable. It doesn't go away and I find myself yelling/snapping at people more and more for things that really aren't bad. Last night I got super irritable with DH because he was up in our bedroom watching a movie, I went downstairs to get laundry and he followed me downstairs to spend time with me even while I was folding. Nice thing but I was annoyed while realizing that I shouldn't be annoyed. Don't know what to do about it.
Along the line of people talking about how your life will change-really annoying and needs to stop but people keep commenting on something slightly different because this is my third. Most of the comments are along the lines of "oh now the kids will outnumber the adults! What are you going to do with 3 of them? Wow that's going to be crazy" etc. Gee thanks for your unwanted input. I have enough anxiety around having a third one and your comments aren't helping. I don't deal well with change and the though of changing our little family and our routine (even though it's a good change!) is slightly terrifying. I keep trying to remind myself that I've done this before, twice, but since every situation and every child is different who knows how this will go. I'm feeling everyone on the anxiety!
@mdfarmchick - I may have to try that soap idea, I'm desperate! I need some sort of sleep! lol
I have DH rub my calves and feet and it is hit or miss if it helps or not. Still, good men to do so for us!
@fatstagnation @crossfitbabybump oh ladies! so I tried foam rolling my calves the other day. my husband laughed so hard....i was unsuccessful. I couldn't even lift myself off the floor and start rolling. the evening ended with him using a rolling pin on the back of my calves. one of the funniest pregnancy moments I have experienced thus far - definetly will remain in my mental memory book. lol
