Have you ever been so tired that you feel sick? That’s how I feel right now. It’s 2AM, and besides the nap I got when I first came home from work today, I have not been able to sleep. Every time I lay down the baby starts to kick (sometimes its so much that it takes my breath away & I see stars), or I have intense pain in my back, knees, and hips so that I can’t comfortably lay down to sleep. I have even tried two different couches, to no success.

I have no idea how I’m going to drag myself into work today feeling like this. Unfortunately, I don’t think I have a choice. We are understaffed this week, and I had a new student start yesterday. My class list is now at 13 kids. I was hoping to continue working until the middle of April, but I have a feeling that this month is going to completely drain all of my remaining energy, and I’ll need to go out sooner. I’m going to miss my little ones so so much while I’m on leave, but I just can’t physically handle the work any more. Now I just have to concentrate on getting through the craziness of this month, getting my lesson plans finished for May and June, and getting my classroom decorations done for our summer theme “Camping.” I won’t lie, it’s a bit overwhelming.

On a lighter note, Tony is almost finished with the floors in the baby’s room. They are stained a pretty dark-honey tone, so all that is left is the sealing process & we can get the furniture back in the room & get set for baby! Diana also started her art project in the room. I’m so excited to see it finished, I really think its going to look fantastic.

I’m sorry to be such a complainer during this entry. I’m just feeling hormonal, and very very tired. I am going to try and go back to sleep now. Wish me luck!

Oh Ms. Thing!
The end is the hardest part! It is so uncomfortable!!!!! They say you start to lose so much sleep at the end so your body is prepared for the lack of sleep when the baby comes. Love you! Keep up the good baby making! It's almost over and you will be holding that sweet little bundle of joy before you know it!

I used to wake up between 2am and 3am everynight right before I had Garrett and once he was born that was the time he normally needed to be fed. You're body is just getting you ready!
