Day 11 of 12

Or ...why I might go insane before tomorrow.

I'm seriously fried ..tired...done...cripsy. Exhausted. With a capital E. Day 11 of 12 in a row without a day off is not my friend. And the idea of doing this 8 or 9 months pregnant? I don't see how there will possibly be a way. I'm almost punch drunk goofy. Since I now pee like ...5 times a night ...the sleep that I do get is not great. And that? Is totally my fault. I think I was massively dehydrated going into this pregnancy and I'm still playing catch up. I'm drinking at least 3 liters of water a day ..and before I was existing solely on diet pepsi. Anyway. If I stop drinking (mostly) by 7 or 8 ..I sleep all night. But I never stop. I even drink when I get up to pee in the night.

Saturday was a really bad day. I was irritated about having to go into the hospital ...woke up ready ...checked my census ..they're were 7 new patients already ...went to start my car. Umm..nope. Wouldn't start. Got mad. Tried to start Monk's car. Nope ..wouldn't start. Tried to open the garage door to find a neighbor ...nope ..wouldn't open. Umm... Michigan is cold right now. So anyway ...we got a jump from a neighbor ..I took monk's SUV ....spent the Day at the hospital ..came home around 8 at night after I slid into a ditch and promptly locked Monk's only set of car keys in the car which I discovered early on Sunday morning going back to the hospital. Yeah. Umm....Those were kind of the highlights of the day.

Everything else is pretty much quiet. I'm settling into the idea that this baby might live. He/she moves several times a day that I can feel. My next OB visit is on Monday and then we'll schedule the anatomy scan. I'm definitely starting to show. Yikes. I bought some maternity clothes but they are definitely still WAY too big I'm in limbo there ...I'm down to about 3 pairs of pants that actually still fit and are comfortable.

I didn't do ICLW this month because I know that I'm going to be way too busy. And I've been awful about commenting on every one's blogs ....just know that I'm reading ...and following ...just silent. I've been seriously contemplating closing down the blog ...because I don't know...I don't feel like I need it anymore or something? We'll see. I make no decisions when I'm punch drunk with sleep deprivation.

I've been thinking about you. I'm sorry to hear you've been running around like a chicken with it's head cut off. That royally sucks.

I hope you get some time to breathe soon.
