A whole new way of sleeping

By kate on March 1st, 2006

I realized recently that my whole perspective on sleep has changed during pregnancy. Before, if I was woken up once in the middle of the night, I considered it a serious interruption and felt like I hadn’t gotten a good night’s sleep.

Now, I wake up every two or three hours throughout the night, to go to the bathroom or because of pain in my hands. After I take care of the issue, I can generally get back to sleep quickly, so I’m not awake too long. Even so, I wake up easily in the morning after the same number of hours, feeling rested and done with sleeping. It’s cool because it doesn’t make sense that it would be possible, but it is. I’m sure my body is doing on purpose because it’s a good preparation for having a newborn.
