I Should Be Sleeping

It's 9:30 pm at my house right now. EVERYONE is asleep. Except me. The one night everybody is in bed conked out at an early hour and the one who should be exhausted isn't. Ug! It's not like I'm not tired. I have just reached the point where I no longer look forward to going to sleep, which is terribly sad as I love sleep! I know what will happen. I will lay down exhausted. I'll start to drift off when my legs will either start itching like crazy or they'll just start moving on their own. I get restless leg syndrom really bad when I'm pregnant. It is incredibly annoying! If it's not that it's the horrible heartburn I've got going on these days. I have never dealt with that with any pregnancy before. I feel sorry for anyone who has to deal with this on a daily basis, it totally SUCKS! Zantac was working but the last two nights it hasn't even touched it and laying down will just make it worse, so why try? And lately, when I finally do fall asleep, I'll wake up every 1/2 hour to change sides as my hips get very sore. I'll officially wake up around midnight thinking it's at least 3 or 4 am. I just cringe when I realize I still have 6 1/2 more hours of trying to sleep!!

So, I'm sitting here emptying one of my memory cards to my camera. Figured I may as well use the time to organize the photos off of it somewhat and then get it emptied so we have a camera ready for the hospital. It has been fun to go back through the photos. They go all the way back to Oct 2010 with Elizabeth's baptism. I never got those photos up at the time so may share some here. Then there was the crazy busy Christmas season. Then the pictures jump to Seth's bday in April.

I did finish the top to the quilt I'm making the baby. I will get a picture of it later. I don't feel like getting it and hanging it up so I can get a decent picture of it right now. I like it, it was a very fun pattern to work with and I will be trying some other colors with it in the future. The rest of the quilt will have to wait until after the baby is born as I have to lay it on the floor to pin it and, well, just not a good position to be in with a belly bump the size of a boulder hanging off the front.

I will be so glad when this is over. Not like I'll still get any sleep but at least it won't be because I'm in pain or I can't get comfortable around this ginormous belly. So looking forward to being able to sleep on my stomach again!!

As promised a few pictures from the past :)
