I am awake. It’s 3:17am in CA and I’ve been awake for about an hour or so. Normally this would not phase me, but I’m phased today.
It’s been at least a week since I started falling asleep and staying asleep more easily. I’ve been enjoying it tremendously. I would still wake from sore hips and back and toss and turn, but I would go back to sleep shortly. I thought that maybe I was turning a corner in my pregnancy insomnia phase. I guess I was wrong, silly me!
On top of the insomnia I have seriously atrocious gas tonight. This is not new. Wel kind of new but started about a week ago as well. I’ve been trying to pin point why all of a sudden I am SO damn gassy. I’m talking like old man tooting his way to the fridge and back kind of gas. I’ve always been a decently gassy person, not sure why, but pregnancy has dealt me a bad hand with this.
My poor wife is a saint for dealing with it but even she looks at me sometimes like “really woman!”. I think I’m dying inside, rotting to the core of these babies are having a feild day with my digestive system! The reason I bring this up is be base its part of why I can’t sleep tonight. I’m tooting so much that it’s waking and keeping me up! Funny on some levels yes but frustrating nonetheless. I need help! Like professional insomnia and gas medical professional help. Ugh….
Have you had this issue while pregnant? Did you solve it? Anything help?
Excuse me while I transfer myself to the couch for fear of killing my wife and cats from the fumes and take some Benadryl to help me sleep.
