What is a pregnant woman do?
On the one hand, I've had such a nesting desire to get things ready and get things done. And I do. I do get things done. Today I finally cleaned out the inside of our car from wiping down the windows and seats to vacuuming the floor and reorganizing the toys and cleaning the car seats. I'm so excited for my next car ride! I also finally gave James his haircut while Cecilia used a mini fan to try and blow the tufts of hair off Daddy.
On the other hand, Felicity keeps waking up at night - for over an hour of awake time. She isn't upset, she is just awake and has trouble getting back to sleep. Add that to any woman's usual uncomfortability and night-wakings in the 9th month and I don't get much sleep. I don't feel dead tired, but I also know my eye doesn't keep twitching because I need therapy.
So I find myself wanting to just dive in and tackle my to-do list with a sleep-deprived body and a spastic eyelid. :::sigh::: I'm still hoping I might at least clean the kitchen floor before the day is out (as I had wanted to do it for over a week now but was waiting until after the haircut and it is the absolute last "to clean" item on my list) but does anyone besides me find this nesting impulse to be a bit on the ironic side given the natural 9-month decline in energy and quality sleep?
