Sleepless Night

Up till now, I've had an abnormally excellent pregnancy. Most pregnant women would be jealous of me. I mean for one, I have experienced absolutely NO morning sickness. I have no swelling of my hands or feet. I haven't really gained much weight except for in my tummy. I still have the energy at 33 weeks pregnant to go for a run and go to the gym. I would say the worst of my pregnancy symptoms have been my uncontrollable urge to eat a ton of sweets (which made me fail my first glucose test...oops), and it's getting a little tougher to breathe cause Dannika is pushing up on my lung space now. I am extremely lucky compared to some of the other pregnant women I have talked to. I have quite frankly enjoyed being pregnant. Last night however, was the first night that I absolutely hated it and couldn't wait for it to be over. Nick and I went out to eat at a Mexican restaurant for dinner, and I chose to have the chicken and cheese biggie, right? It was a pretty big dinner for me, and it made me full. I felt good afterwards. We got home, watched American Idol, and went to bed since Nick couldn't stay awake for the life of him! As soon as my head hit my pillow, I had this uncontrollable urge to throw up. It felt like all my food that I had consumed for the day was back in my chest, on its' way back up my mouth. I tossed and turned for a while and eventually got so frustrated that I just sat up. It felt better to sit up...I guess gravity was pulling my food back down into my tummy. I ended up falling asleep on the couch sitting up after puking twice (sounds attractive, huh?)...did I mention it was like 1am when I finally fell asleep?? It was the worst night of my pregnancy. I have felt like ASS all day from lack of sleep. I guess I failed to realize that since Dannika is getting bigger, she is pushing on my stomach...making less room for food....which in turn is giving me the horrible urge to throw up everything I eat if I eat a normal portion meal. Other than that, I had my second baby shower this past Sunday with all my girlfriends...Sarah, Kim, Jenni, Tillery, Taryn....and I finally got to meet Aaron's fiance Nancy! So fun. I got to hang out with a ton of cute baby stuff. Big thanks to my hubby Nick for doing everything and enduring it with me!!! And lastly...we traded in the Lexus for the Mercedes Benz GLK350. A small SUV...way safe for my daughter to be, and her stroller fits in the back!!!
