Snoring And Stuff.

Well, folks.

Here we are.  Three days before my due date and things are pretty quiet.

I was convinced that I was going to have this baby last Saturday.  Contractions were coming on frequently for five hours straight last Friday night.  I was so convinced it was time that I missed movie night with Trav and Arle to go upstairs and take a shower because, by golly gee wiz, I’m going to have fabulous hair and smooth legs when I deliver this child.

I have priorities, folks.

But, alas, all came to a screeching halt around midnight.  The contractions stopped so Trav and I went to bed.

I really don’t know why I even try to sleep right now, though.  It’s not the easiest or most pleasant task in the world.  Yes, it’s difficult to get comfy, but truthfully that’s not the main obstacle in drifting off to the sweet land of zzzzzzzzs.

The real problem is this:  I snore like a banshee these days.

It’s sad, but true.

I snore so loudly that I wake myself up.

Obviously, Trav’s sleep is interrupted, too.  He’s taking it like a champ, but I know he’s annoyed.  I’m honestly shocked that he’s still sharing a bed with me at this point.

I don’t think I’ve ever felt less attractive in all my life as I do when I realize I’m snoring like a lumberjack.

Oh well.

It’s worth it.

I’m just praying that it’s an actual pregnancy symptom and that it goes away when I’m no longer preggers and am able to sleep on my tummy again.


In other news, if I don’t have this baby by next Monday evening, I’ll go in for a Tuesday morning induction.  The doctor feels that will have given the not-so-little guy plenty of marination time and is comfortable going in that direction at that point.

So excited to meet him and kiss those sweet not-so-little cheeks.

By the way, thanks for all of your sweet comments about the nursery.  I love to go in there and just rock and stare and imagine snuggling our new addition.  Arle does the same thing and it’s absolutely precious.

‘Til next time, toodles.

    Um, hate to inform you Heather, but nursing mom’s usually don’t find sleeping on their tummy’s too comfortable either.–But the snoring should subside when all the side effects of pregnancy disappear and your hormones get back to normal.

    And I can’t wait to get that call from my sis saying Boyd has arrived.

    We all know your will look fab in the delivery room although they will make you take off your incredible earrings. The snoring? Well that will probably subside after you start getting an uninterrupted full night’s sleep. You are the cutest lumberjack ever, that’s for sure!

    Hey girl…it is a symptom of pregnancy…so no worries! Also, if you are going to get an epidural (not swaying you one way or the other)…do it before they induce. You are going to do great & look great! I can’t wait to see a sweet picture of Arle holding her new baby brother! Blessings!!! JoRie
