Woke up this morning at about 3:30am and just decided to give up on sleeping (and trying not to wake my husband) and came downstairs to lay on the couch. I have this horrible head cold. I woke up two mornings ago (in Hawaii) not feeling great with this weird little cough. Unfortunately, since then, I have had to fly a redeye and had a long day culminating in childbirth class.
I tried to give myself every opportunity to sleep last night: pile o' pillows, vaporizer with camphor medicine, vicks vapo-rub, but to little avail. I guess I made it to 1:30 with little problems, so there you go.
Now I'm on the couch alone, waiting for the sun to come up, rocking a stuffed up nose, barking cough, which has resulted in a sore throat, and there's pressure in my ears. Have to say that head cold +8.5 months pregnant is all kinds of extra miserable - all this and you are made to feel guilty about sleeping on your back/reclined! There's no comfortable sleep position anyway.
Too bad tomorrow's a big day at work and I can't beg off (laws of physics say so).
So this is newborn training, right?
