Sleepless in Antioch...

We're officially 12 weeks this week and have begun to spread the word about our bundle of joy. I was so excited to share it with the ladies from my dinner club. Needless to say, they were FLOORED... My mom is estatic that she can FINALLY tell her 8 brothers and sisters that she's gonna be a grandma. I feel a sense of relief as well...I mean 2 months is a long time to keep a secret like this.

Anywho, on a totally different note...can anybody give me advice on sleeping through the night???? I literally wake up EVERY night somewhere between 3:30 and 4:30 and can't go back to sleep for another hour or so. Sunday night just took the cake. My eyes pop open at 3:30 and I just laid there. After 30-45 minutes or so of tossing and turning, I thought I'd wake Nick up so he could be just as miserable as I was. Afterall, we are in this thing together....right? heehee... We decided to raid the fridge for a healthy snack (mandarine oranges for him and tomatoes and veggie dip for me) and watch a little TV. Who knew, Set It Off was on TNT. 1996...Kimberly Elise, Vivica A. Fox, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Queen Latifah have all come a long way since those days. That movie is a classic.

We finally went back to sleep about 5:30 or 6:00. Luckily we didn't have church service until 11:00 the next morning. I promised Nick I wouldn't wake him up if he had to go to work the next day, and thanked him for keeping me company. What do I have to do to get a good nights rest??? SUGGESTIONS PLEASE!!!


  1. OMG!!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Wow, you little stinker! To think, I just called you last week asking for short-term disability insurance advice on this VERY subject! LOL!
