4:30 am and I'm awake

I've been lucky that they aren't doing vitals on me throughout the night. But sure enough, I am usually up around 4am to go to the bathroom. Once I'm up, I'm hungry, once I've eaten a bit, I'm AWAKE. At least I get to sleep anytime I want during the day. Also the support hose they make you wear are driving me INSANE. I'm hot natured anyway. Throw in being pregnant and wearing elastic support hose and I just can't sleep. I took them off so hopefully I can get some more rest tonight, er... this morning. I'll just have to promise them I'll put them back on.

Jeff is going home tomorrow so he go back to work on Monday. The immediate threat of delivery is gone, so no point in him staying here 24/7 right? It'll be strange here by myself.

Anyone feeling froggy and want to drive to Mobile to visit, COME ON!


  1. Hang in there Pam! Can they give you something to help you sleep? I had terrible terrible insomnia during my pregnancy and had to take Ambien once in a while.

    Let us know when we can bring meals to your sister/mom/Jeff --

    When the baby is older, we'll make a trip to Mobile and see you.

    Take care and we'll keep you and little baby Lucas in our prayers.

  2. I feel your pain! I have done my share of staying in hospitals with the kids but never for me. Try to think of it as a vacation and a time to be lazy. I know you must be going stir crazy!
