nope - if I am not getting up to pee then I wake up because of the hand swelling/carpel tunnel pain. So sleeping is an issue already and the little one isn't even here yet. But my maternity leave starts NOW =) so hopefully I will get some rest before she arrives. Been having cramping on my lower right side though. Did you have any before you went into labor and if so for how long before hand?
We're still touch n go here. There's a couple nights a week when Aidyn seems to want to nurse all night long and other nights he'll get up around 11 or so then get up again around 2:30 - 3 and again at around 6. He sleeps in bed with me though so I can still rest while feeding him and I'm not feeling too sleep deprived.

Sleep? Oh wait that is the part of the day where you close your eyes and give your mind and body rest...UM NO, If I am not peeing I am doing a 5 part roll over to the other side, or needing water, or feeling crampy. At least when the baby is here I should be able to nap when they nap and if I can't at least there will be something precious to look at as I lay awake. Another reason I am over this pregnancy thing lol
Definitely not getting enough. Between the time I woke up Thursday morning and today I've gotten less than 20 hours of sleep.
While still recovering in the hospital I tend to get anxious when William isn't with me so I stay up a lot waiting for him to come back from trips to the nursery for antibiotics. Last night I got 1 hour of sleep. When my mom came today she could be up with William, allowing me to take a nap. I got a 2 hour nap that was broken up here and there by kids running in the hallway of L&D. I wanted to find their parents and yell at them for being so stupid as to let their children act like this is a playground.
About to try and get some sleep now since I was able to pump a crapload of milk that the nurses in the nursery can finger feed to William should he get hungry. They'll bring him back to me around 4:30am.
