Oh I am sooooo tired! What is my deal?? Seriously, I wake up at 7:30 to Dejah wanting chocolate milk and cartoons. I drag myself out of bed and get her all situated next to me in my bed. And for an extra fifteen minutes I lay there trying to wake up enough because Mycah is right behind her wanting the same thing. As soon as they are both situated, I proceed to the living room where I sit and try to wake up. I eat, and then the day continues on. Here's the real situation, I think I have pregnancy insomnia. I practically drag all day long until Mycah goes down for a nap around 1:00. I feed myself some lunch and then I crash! HARD! Of course my nap doesn't last long, because I usually wake up from Dejah wanting something or Mycah just waking up. Usually after I recover from my MUCH NEEDED nap I feel better. The worst part about this whole thing is that I gain energy throughout the evening. Around 9:00, my girls are in Bed and Alex is winding down. 9:30-10:00 Alex is crashing and I don't feel a bit tired. Last night it was nearly 11:00 and I was literally laying in bed wondering when that "tired feeling" would hit me. It didn't, so I grabbed a book off the book shelf and went into the living room to read. Sleep didn't come until midnight. It seems that this is becoming a nightly occurrence, and I don't know how to fix it. Ideally, I'd love to have that energy during the day...no nap...and wind down with everyone else. What do I do?
