I see 3:47am every. single. morning.
For some reason, no matter what time I go to bed, I wake up at this magic hour and cannot fall back asleep. I lie there for an hour or so, then finally get up to drink warm almond milk, walk around our dark house and try to get tired again (ha!), get back in bed, stare at the wall, and finally just resolve that this is my new wake up time.
Can I blame pregnancy for this? When I search "pregnancy insomnia" a whole host of articles and forums come up, saying, "insomnia is relatively common and is caused by the hormonal changes of pregnancy" - so it must be the reason. Lovely. I've never ever had trouble sleeping (Shawn jokes about how hard I sleep!), so maybe this is just the preparation for the major lack of sleep I'm about to get with a new baby.
Anyone experienced this? Have any tips? I'll try just about anything! :)
