Now as some of you will already know, I've not really been sleeping well for quite a while now. I usually manage to get 4 or 5 hours in, then am wide awake (and I'm a 9 hour a night kind of girl). This often results in me having a lovely afternoon kip. I know what you're thinking - my body is preparing me for all those sleepless nights once the baby arrives. Fair enough, I'm not complaining. However, Thursday night I had the best sleep I've had for MONTHS! Not only did I sleep through the night - no 3am toilet break - but I slept until about 9am! I had a good, undisturbed 9 hours! It wasn't long before I realised that this probably meant that was my last decent sleep.

So last night we went to bed after having been out for a lovely meal to celebrate Dad's 65th birthday. We were both pretty knackered but I was feeling so uncomfortable that sleep didn't arrive for a good hour and a half. It was just after 1:20 when I last looked at my clock. Then 4am arrived and that was me up and wide awake. I did manage to get three hours of sleep in at 8am - thanks Frans - but I now feel so out of sorts that I'm glad I'm on maternity leave.

Sadly I think I may be getting used to this kind of sleep deprivation....
