Misery and Woe

One of our hardwired smoke detectors wasn't actually wired correctly. About 2 a.m. the back-up battery gave out and it started beeping every minute. My husband got up and took it down, but I didn't get back to sleep until 5 and then slept until 7.

Long hours of insomnia are really getting me down.


Oh, I feel for you. With every nerve in my body.

Try the castor oil? It really does work. And it means you won't be pregnant much longer.

Or do what I couldn't and sit it out patiently :-)

(of my 12, 10 were late - nearly all 41++ weeks, till the last 2 when I finally took castor oil - they were both born at 38 wks - that is a whole month less of being pregnant, plus the babies were smaller and easier to deliver. . .)

It can't be much longer. (I used to repeat that to myself all the time)

Thanks, Henrietta. I was feeling desperate enough the other day that I went looking for castor oil at the drug store and couldn't find it. I wonder if it is kept some place funny in our stores.

I actually slept last night - I think I was so exhausted that I just passed out. But I woke up feeling like someone had kicked the crap out of me. Everything hurt and ached. I think the sleep was worth it though.

I'm sending(easy) labor vibes your way!
