I need naps now. I get tired in the afternoon and will pass out on the couch while watching TV. No matter how hard I try I can't seem to sleep past 9am, plus I think my quality of sleep is decreasing. The worst part is that work is scheduling me for a lot of closing shifts because I want to work shorter shifts. Evenings are not good for me. I'm too tired and with that comes crankiness. Not a good state to be in while helping customers.

I am not a nap person usually, and really only nap when I am sick. I am finding that I can take a good, long nap most days. Which, I really don't like because I feel like it's such a waste of time for me (when I'd normally get something done). I'm definitely adjusting to that one. Last week was horrible and nap most days. This week, I seem to feel a bit better. I was taking iron every other day to help with my RLS and have been for about a month. When I went for my last appt., despite taking iron, I still was slightly anemic. So, I bumped it up to every day and I really think that really helped some.
As far as night goes, my sleep is SUCKING. I am up at least 10 times every night to pee or reposition and this belly is just SO heavy. It almost hurts to roll from side to side. I'm sleeping okay when I do sleep, but I am waking so much. It sucks, as I'm sure it will just be like this for the next 10 weeks. Oh well....10 weeks and counting!
I wish i could nap!!! i work from 9-6, so that's not happening, i barely have time to make dinner, and spend cple of hours with my son before its bedtime..
but if i dare to lie down, i will pass out,lol.
I sleep like a baby at night still, and usually get 8-9 hours every night. But I'm STILL ready for a nap around 3 every day! And after any errand, I'm exhausted. My husband just doesn't understand it, either. Ugh.
I am so used to not sleeping since September 2009.. that this is nothing new. Yes I am tired a bit more than usual, Im ready for a nap by dinner time and poor kids ... but I also suffer insomnia, GO FIGURE

I am still feeling quite energetic which I am so thankful for! I'm sleeping better at night since transitioning our cat out of our room. (he used to sleep on and walk all over my head). Wake up once to pee urgently! I am up by 6am every day, and work 10 hour days, am a bit sleepy right after I eat my lunch, but if I just stay busy, or if its nice out, go for a quick walk outside I find I get through my afternoons no problem. Hoping it stays like this for the next 3 months!
