Operation 365 Poem: day 292…Vivid Dozes

Vivd Dozes

I don’t dream
I mean, I don’t sleep
I have spouts of dozing
When I get a peep

If I have a dream
Its rare I can recall it all
It comes and goes
Through my lack of sleep wall

Last night though
Was that rare time
I had vivid doze dreams
Must have been the wine
And the cocktails called Pipeline!
Perhaps even the Margaritas
Must be the Hawaiin bartending chiquitas

They put in magic juice
And made my mind a ticking bomb
Would have been ok if they were nice dreams
But in all of them, something went wrong

Will that stop me from drinking more now?
Nope – will be drinking all day long!

Operation 365 Poem: day 145…Sleep My Angel

Sleep My Angel

Arm stuck
But so worth it
A sleeping angel
Curled and perfect

Restless morning
Took him to bed with me
After much tossing and turning
Finally he got sleepy

With his head
Up next to mine
And his arms
And my arms entwined

He wanted to be close
Cuddled in tight
Sleep my beautiful angel
Good Night!

I had my glucose test this morning. Up early. No sleep again. It was so light out I thought it was 8am and time to get up, but nope, it was 6am!!!! Boo!!!

Then it was downhill from then….there was no way I could sleep again after that 😦

Another glucose test with that wonderful-NOT glucose drink and three hour wait with no food for blood tests. Another fight against the nausea of the wait with no food annoyingly. No one has to do two glucose tests! Trust my luck that changing countries would result in that!

To make it worse, after the test, we got on the tube to go for another day of baby shopping but the tube car was soooooo hot! I was dying! There is no A/C on the UK tube system as there is no way to put them in…which always baffles everyone! The tubes have been built without being able to accommodate them. I guess it’s a good thing it’s never super hot over here – although today it was a bit muggy so I started getting woozy – and the tube car we were in had no windows to open or an end window that usually gets some air in! Ugh. I hate that shaky feeling and the feeling of little control.

I was of course offered a seat but no can do!


Made it to some food and that helped. And of course it gave me strength to baby shop!! Even got a baby car seat today!! You need one from the hospital as they won’t let you leave without one but was worried about UK prices as things are expensive here and also compatibility with a US car, where we need it. But found one that should fit everywhere with a seatbelt system, and is good but cheaper than all the rest we’ve seen. So that’s good. I think. I’m so tired to even process right now.

Then more looking and looking – another baby overload day!!

Was on my feet a lot today so my feet hurt a lot, even with sneakers on 😦

I had a crappo night last night.

No sleep again 😦

Yesterday evening I started to feel really uncomfortable…higher than my baby bump…in my ribs area…was the little schmonkey there perhaps? Or my organs shifting?

I don’t know.

Every time I lay down I felt like I couldn’t sit up again but roll to get up as it was tender and weird.

There is just no room to expand – and when you think about it it’s really strange…making room for a growing alien!! Organs moving around and out of the way…what the???!!!!


So amid the discomfort this little alien was obviously on my bladder all night, which meant I had to pee constantly!!! But could never empty my bladder, so it was a looooong night of constant waking up and going to the loo….Nice!!

Boo 😦

I see that the little schmonkey already has its control over me!!

As a result I had dreams of being at camp?? Strange!

This whole thing is just bizarre! Strange! Weird! Odd!

The miracle of life….more like the freaky miracle of life!!!!!!
