Sleepy Time…All The Time

by Lo on July 8, 2010

I’ve been binging on sleep for the past few days. It’s like any activity I do requires rest and recovery. And everytime I feel wiped out, I shake my head and say, “I just don’t know why I feel so tired.”

Ben looks at me like I’m crazy and then looks at my stomach. “You have a full grown baby in there,” he reminds me.

“Oh yeah.” I pause.  “But still, I just can’t believe how tired I am.”

Even if I’m off my feet and writing or reading, I am totally wiped out after a couple of hours. I drift off to sleep mid-sentence. It feels so good though, so I’m trying to let myself accept it, which is tough for me.

I try to remember that I’m going to give birth in the next couple of weeks and that hopefully, my sleepiness is my body’s way of telling me that I should relax and conserve some energy for that.

I’ve also been seriously craving carbohydrates, which if it weren’t for my gestational diabetes, I would also be storing for energy. Like a pancake breakfast before a race. But I’m sticking to protein, trying to keep my blood sugar stable. What a drag that is. I can’t wait to have a candy party.

Well, I just woke up, wrote, and ate some breakfast. I think I’ll take a little rest before I grocery shop. And then another one between that and my doctor’s appointment this afternoon. Mikey will be down to keep me company.
