I can't think of any reasonable explanations for my inability to sleep. My mind isn't racing like crazy, I'm totally wiped out, I go to bed as soon as I feel tired, I don't drink anything with caffeine. I've taken Unisom on and off and sometimes it seems to help, sometimes not. Maybe it's that I've stopped going to the gym during the past few weeks of renovations? My midwife gave me some valerian tincture and has suggested doing a sleep study. To be honest, I've put it off primarily because of the cost. Plus if I can't sleep in my own comfortable bed, how on earth will I be able to sleep somewhere else, attached to monitors?!
I had my home visit today, which made the upcoming birth seem more of a reality. I probably only have 1-2 more midwife visits left before the baby arrives, unless I go 41 weeks or later (which, with my history, would really surprise me). The baby is now LOT, after a long time of hanging out ROT. We still haven't heard back from the OB who had expressed interest in attending a home birth.
I've started getting things ready for the baby. I scored a free used crib, painted white, which at first will be used mainly when the baby is napping. I sewed a few sets of fitted crib sheets from unbleached linen and this cotton print. As soon as our bathroom is finished, my plan is to put Dio upstairs in Zari's room and set up the downstairs bedroom with the birth tub.
