What is sleep?
Our bodies must be preparing us for when our little ones are here, the more I toss form one hip to another (don’t lie on the back, scary stuff will happen :|) the more agony I am in.
Every night is the same, I change positions of pillows move from left to right to front to left again, I feel like I have been laid in that bed an absolute age – & my lovely other half sleeps soundly next to me completely unaware that due to his amazing little swimmers playing break the barrier with my egg that in the morning I will rip his head off in a grumpy moment. and then cry.
Jeeze, I know things aren’t gonna get easier but you would honestly think that whoever decided this reproduction method would have thought:
“Do you know what, the mother has to go through a harsh labour & then no sleep for many many months. I reckon it would be lovely if we made it so the last 10 weeks we actually let them sleep a little more so that they are refreshed and energetic ready for this challenge.”Pahaha who am I kidding – it was probably a man that designed this 😉
