Snoring, and acne, and babies – oh my!

October 30, 2008

I got the worst night of sleep EVER last night.  First of all, I went to bed waaaaaaaay too late (for someone who is supposed to be taking care of two babies), and then I just slept like complete shit.  Both Freddie (the big dog) and Jeff (the big husband) were snoring, so that made it hard to actually fall asleep.  Once I fell asleep, it was hard to stay asleep because my face hurt so damn bad (from the horrible acne breakouts I have on my chin and hairline).  I actually had to get up at 3:30 to relieve some of the pressure of a few of the culprits (sorry that’s so gross, but as you know, I’m an oversharer), and from there I just couldn’t fall back to sleep.  I kept dreaming of our babies – what they would look like, what genders they will be, will they have Jeff’s eyes, my lips, etc – and it literally kept me up all night (morning).  Finally, at 4:30 I just said “screw it”, and got up, took a shower, and headed into work.  If I’m going to be up, I may as well be getting paid for it!

In bigger, more important news, I’m fairly certain that I felt one, or both, of the babies moving around last night.  It was SO weird.  It felt like somebody was tickling me from the inside, but it only lasted a few seconds each time.  When I was lying awake thinking about my snoring dog and husband, my pizza face, and my babies, I just wanted them to move again because it was so cool.  I have waited a long ass time for that, and wow, I just can’t wait until I start feeling them more regularly!
