Insomnia, you heartless cow

Frankly, I’m not sure how I am to ever enter into the elusive state of pregnancy glow if I can’t get a decent night of sleep!

Between daily battles with Nausea and Exhaustion, I don’t have much left to fight off Insomnia. I’m usually up 2-3 times per night, sometimes to pee, sometimes for no reason at all. On occasion I can go right back to sleep, but more often than not, I find myself wide awake – and in the past few days – HUNGRY!
Since Nausea seems to get the night off, I’ve been sneaking into the kitchen for some puke-free eating, which is heavenly.

I’m pretty new to this Insomnia thing, as up until now I’ve been an easy sleeper. Pretty much whenever wherever – if my head is near a pillow, I’m out. I generally don’t do well with drugs, so I’m trying to stay away from pharmaceutical sleep-aids the best I can.
So I read… or play games on my phone and wait for sleepiness to come back. Which it usually does, about 30 minutes before it’s time to get up. Sigh.

I’m told soon the tides will turn and I’ll get my second trimester wind. I’m ready…  any day now!
