With everyone sleeping around me the world feels quiet. All seems to be at peace, even though I know this is far from the truth. This evening I am forced to listen to the gentle snores of my husband and kitty while my indigestion calls me to sit up straight and clutch my chest in pangs of pain. Another pregnancy symptom which causes discomfort and insomnia but also proof that your child is growing diligently inside of you. (P.S. On this subject I blame my mother for this onset as she recently questioned me on whether the indigestion had started…yes Mum, it has. :))
I really do not mind being up at night in the dark. It seems to be when my mind comes alive and I then regret falling asleep, therefore forgetting some miraculous idea for a life-changing invention. But, now that I am kept awake by random pregnancy side effects these ideas do not seem to come to me and I just want to let myself drift into deep, refreshing, brain restoring sleep. Ahh, can’t have it all. 🙂
I shall try and lay down again. My eyes seem to tire more quickly then my mind so hopefully I can shut it off tonight as easily as I turn off the lights.
