I can't seem to settle down this evening. I'm definitely tired, but also all keyed up.
It started mid-morning with feeling anxious and it's ebbed and flowed a bit, but even though I almost fell asleep while watching a movie, I haven't been able to fall asleep yet in my bed- which is completely unlike every other night this week when I've been zonked out by 10:45.

I can't decide if my body is freaked out because my mind is freaked out or if there's really something wrong. I want so much for this pregnancy to flourish and be healthy and continue to full term...


  1. Good luck! Have you tried getting into a hobby so that your concentrating on that or listening to soothing music?

  2. Our minds have a tendency to play unkind tricks on us. It's going to take some time for your mind to come to terms with everything, but it'll get there eventually. It the mean time, you are pregnant, right now. Maybe find a mantra that you can say? That could help when you're frazzled.

  3. Thanks ladies! I think at least in part I was just totally exhausted last night and had worked myself up- this is the point in my last pregnancy when it started going down hill, so I think that adds to it.
    I've been watching movies and reading. It's been tough this week because my husband's been super busy with work and we haven't had much of a chance to connect and that throws me off when I'm feeling emotional already.

  4. I am so sorry. I know how hard it is to get your mind off things. I say go treat yourself to something you really, a movie, a spa treatment, fancy dinner...whatever makes you happy! Hope you feel better today!

  5. I want that for you... sending hugs...
