Besides the fact that I am writing this at friggin’ 6.15am!!!

Today is tech for the show tonight. I have to take the props in my car and pick up more props on the Upper West Side at 7.30am to be at the Theatre by 8am.

So alarm was set for 6.30am as I had everything prepared last night.

What time did I wake, and then not be able to go back to sleep….5.30am!!!!!!!!

WHY??????????!!!!!!!!!!!!

I mean, I am having troubles sleeping anyway, went to bed late getting things sorted out for today, but also because I just can’t seem to go to sleep early anyway, and waking up several times an hour as my “routine” these days in pregnancy….and then on top of all that I have to wake up an HOUR early!!!!

Why does that happen?? Why, when you have to get up super early do you wake before the alarm goes off??!!!

Wasn’t that why the Snooze button was invented??? To ease you to wake up?? For those that just can’t wake up when the alarm goes off?? Why couldn’t that be my scenario this morning???!!!

UGH!!

Super annoying.

And I tried so hard to just get in a comfortable position and fall back asleep – it was a lost cause.

Hence why I am writing my blog this early and did some 365 already. This is going to be a loooooooong day and I won’t be done until at least 11pm or later so have a loooooooong way to go, so I guess it’s good that I am writing this now and did some 365 already. The rest will be done along in the day.

And the best part of what lies ahead is I can’t have any coffee or the amount of coffee I would need to get by today…thanks to no caffeine while pregnant.

Woo Hoo! Let’s see how I make it through the day!!

Rough night again.

Nothing new.

Have my follow-up doctor’s appointment next week so will bring it up then, and also try some sort of pillow that has been recommended to me for sleeping while pregnant because something needs to change.

I was sooooooo not awake this morning, or now, or never. What’s funny is that I don’t remember the last time I was awake. I know that sounds weird but it’s true. Well, I do remember one time, and that may be the last time honestly, and that was back in College, so a super long time ago. But there was one moment on one night of many that I was doing an all-nighter and I remember looking over to the right at the door and suddenly the whole world was crystal clear! And I remember thinking to myself, “so this is what it is like to feel truly awake”.

I know it sounds funny! But seriously, that was the only time that has ever happened and then I snapped out of it a little bit after and I have never felt that awake ever again! I am always in a little bit of a daze. You know, those commercials they advertize on TV about people with allergies and the screen is all fuzzy until they advertize what the allergy relief pill can do like Claritin and they peel back the screen so its clear and in focus – that is exactly how I am and feel! I live with that film across that makes it all fuzzy and hazy around. For those who don’t know these commercials, here is one…

I have always been a bad sleeper and wake up every hour so never or rarely go into REM sleep so I’m sure that has to take a toll on someone and makes it all fuzzy. I have just learned to live with it and live off adrenalin as I seem to be able to function. I know there are points when my body dies to try to catch up but you can never catch up on all the lost sleep sadly.

Well, nowadays unfortunately it is even worse than waking up every hour and it seems to be happening every night so frequently and I am more tired than I normally am. I can cope with my same ol’ same ol’ routine of bad sleep but this is a little extra so it’s wearing on me for sure!

I thought maybe some 365 in the morning may wake me up but I kept getting calls that I needed to answer so it had to wait until after first thing. I should try that though although last thing I want to do when I am so tired is something so active like that first thing in the morning…..I hear a challenge beckoning!!

It was funny though as no one seemed to also be awake on the train to work this morning. Literally no one! Not one person was speaking or spoke the whole ride, even those who were travelling with people! Half of the people were asleep or had their eyes shut, the other were dozing – doing the nod thing! That helped me pass the time in the tunnel this morning – watching people do the nodding off thing and then bouncing back up! It’s hilarious! It’s also hilarious how people react after they bounce back up – they look around to see if anyone saw them! Haha! And what was even funnier was there were about five or six people doing it at once this morning!

It was good people watching this morning!

I was glad that everyone around me seemed to feel like I did! TIRED!!
