I have been utterly uninspired as to what to write on this blog in the past week or so, and last night at around 3:52am, I finally figured out why: insomnia.
They say that insomnia affects up to 75% of women in their third trimesters, and it looks like it seeped into my life right on time, at about two weeks ago and refusing to make its departure. What makes things even worse is that my lack of sleep exacerbates all my other third trimester symptoms: nausea, swelling/bloating, aching, nosebleeds, and the general feeling of ickiness.
It was only fitting that I stumbled upon this infographic this morning…
After browsing this infographic, I am hoping that my situation is a case of acute insomnia, not chronic.
Does anyone have any suggestions for battling pregnancy-induced insomnia?
