The Promised Land

I am so relieved to say that I only woke up ONCE last night to pee.  Now, this may not seem like a big deal to the rest of you, but to me, it's wonderful.  I have been waiting for that point when I hit the second trimester and the frequent urination starts to subside.  I swear, for the entire duration of the first trimester, I was waking up every hour (maybe every two hours if I was lucky) to relieve myself... sometimes up to 7-8 times a night.  This was making me beyond miserable, as it kept me from really being able to fall asleep all the way. 

Even before I was pregnant, I woke up at least once to use the bathroom, so I feel like I am back to normal... maybe I was just so exhausted that I slept through the need to go, but I really hope this is here to stay!  I actually felt rested most of the day, and it is GREAT!

In other news, my hubby is leaving me tomorrow to go on a 10 day cross-country road trip with his best friend.  Usually, I like having the house to myself, but I'm a little down about it this time... maybe it's because my favorite thing to do when hubby is out of town is open a bottle of wine, order sushi take out, and watch chick flicks that I have no chance of watching when he is home... but two out of those three activities are basically out (and please, I know that I can eat cooked or veggie sushi, but come on, that isn't the same thing).  I decided to spend the long holiday weekend back home with my parents... maybe doing some maternity shopping cause my clothes aren't cutting it so much anymore. 

We both will return home on Memorial Day, and I'm excited for an ultrasound scheduled for the next day at 8:40am.  As I've said before, I'll be 15w2d...probably still too early to determine the sexes 100%, but damn if I'm not going to ask about 100 times.  I don't want to have to wait another 3-5 weeks afterwards to find out, I'm too impatient!

  1. I LOVED when I started sleeping and not having to pee so much. Unfortunatly the peeing returns at the end. But you get some pretty good sleep before that!

    Have fun on vacation from the hubby!
