It’s somehow a relief to know that somethings haven’t changed. While almost everything about my life and routine has been taken over by the pregnancy, I can still sleep like a log when I’m stressed.
Last night’s sleep was one of the best I’ve had this trimester. The back ache and swollen feet didn’t register. I didn’t get uncomfortable enough to wake up and managed to change sides only when I had to get up to go to the loo.
The loo trips only happened thrice too – instead of the usual 5 or 6, in half of which I have to walk holding onto the furniture for support.
But since the pain didn’t register, I could simply get up and go with minimum hassle.
The baby cooperated too. There was no rib tickling or kicks on my bladder. There was no crazy movements to wake me up. Just a little shove here and there to let me know it was okay when I’d get up to go to the loo.
Of course I won’t be able to sleep off stress when there’s a hungry, squalling baby in the crib in the middle of the night.
Just a little over 3 weeks left!
