What should I do about my lack of sleep? I've been up since about 4:00am. Of course, I'll probably crash in about an hour or so and wake up late. At least I wasn't the only one with sleeping problems. Dan was up all night, too. He finally fell asleep around 20 minutes ago.
I do spend a lot of time thinking about the baby. Maybe I'm driving myself crazy. I'm so anxious to meet him that I probably can't relax because of it. When I do manage to fall asleep, I dream about him. The last dream I had about him, I was changing his clothes constantly. He looked so cute in all the outfits I put him in.
How long should I work for? I'm working in an office where the stress levels are minimal. If I stay until the end of August, I'll be 37 1/2 weeks. Is that pushing it? I probably should be asking my doctor about this (I will on my next visit). Am I going to regret not taking any time for myself before the baby is born? Or will I be so miserable by then that it won't matter? Better yet, what if I go into labor at work? I am in the middle of Times Square. Well, I'll worry about this next month. There's nothing I could do about this now, anyway.
I need to get into the water. I've been dying to go to a pool or a lake for the longest time. The last time I was in any water was Memorial day week of last year that Dan and I were in Miami. I've been asking Dan to take me to a pool, but I don't think he understands how much I need it. I feel bad being a pain about this, but I just want to float in the water and relax. If he doesn't take me soon, I will go nuts. It's going to be 96 degrees today. I should be at some pool somewhere.
That is all for my ramblings. Nothing else is really going on. I'm taking it day by day trying to enjoy as much of my pregnancy as possible. So far, I've been able to tolerate the heat, which is a blessing. As long as I'm able to, I see the end of my pregnancy being fine. I'll keep you posted!
