>Yes, I knew they were coming. The sleepless nights, I was warned about them. It all started off small, around the 6th month. The song and dance between bathroom and bed was played only once or twice in the middle of the night. Slowly, they added a new act. The kitchen decided to join in the middle-of-the-night fun. I would either wake up thirsty or my blood sugar had dropped. None of it was a big deal, because after this little number I was able to easily fall back asleep. Until last night. I lost count of how many times I had to get out of bed. And each time I got back, I couldn’t find a comfortable position. It wasn’t until early morning that I was able to turn off this “preggo” symphony. I finally fell asleep. Thirty minutes later, the alarm went off. Should I assume it is only about to get worse?
