Quality of Sleep
Monday, December 14, 2009
Wow, I did not sleep well last night. But, in my defense, I'm 38 weeks pregnant, I need a new mattress (it sags in the middle), and I think this baby has dropped so I'm visiting the bathroom frequently for an irritatingly small amount, lol.
It's the weirdest thing that at the time when you need the most energy and best sleep, it's hard to achieve. But I'll take a nap later today when my daughter does, and she's been the sweetest little angel today playing by herself and asking for little attention, so that helps, lol.
But, even when I'm not pregnant I have to remember the balance of quality and quantity. I know my body, and while 8 hours is enough, for me 9 to 10 is better. Sure I have less time in the day, but the time I have then is more productive. Since we just bought new baby furniture a new mattress for me will have to wait. It might take awhile, but once my weight is down, both from having the baby, and from "Sparking" I should find that I sleep better, at least for the little timeframes I will have with a newborn.
Growing a family, so many blessings, so many challenges, and so worth it :)
