I’m totally complaining

I am beginning to wonder why I even bother going to sleep anymore. It’s more hassle than what it’s worth.
It takes me 5 minutes to crawl into the bed, another 8 minutes deciding which side I’m more comfortable on (since I no longer can sleep on my stomach or on my back), another 10 minutes getting 29 pillows I use for support all in place. By the time I get all settled and comfortable, I have to take a leak. I get up, go pee, come back and repeat the process all over again, only to have to take another leak. It’s an endless cycle. By the time I finally am able to fall asleep, the man is getting up for work and I have to pee again. I wake up purely exhausted and ready for a nap.
Then there’s the whole “my hands go numb and swell to triple the size” thing that goes on all night. I have to wake up and shake the hell out of them to get the circulation back, then I have to pee.
It’s frustrating, to say the least. AND I HAVE FIVE MORE MONTHS TO GO! My stomach is only going to get bigger, the pains and discomfort are going to get worse and it’s only a matter of time before the baby starts kicking my organs. Not to mention when she starts taking up all of the space in there, making it hard to breathe.
I won’t even talk about the hemorroids flaring up, because that would be offensive.
I’m thinking the only solution to this problem is to ask Tony to whack me with a bat in the head every night so as to knock me out cold for a few hours, at least then I’d get some sleep. Ok, maybe not, but if I get desperate enough. Maybe.

    I have a possible solution for the hand problem I had a bad flare-up of carpal tunnel syndrome, and my doctor gave me wrist splints to wear at night, because I was having the same problem you are. The splints keep you from curling your wrists forward, so that nerve isn’t “cut off”, which is what causes the tingling and the pain. Not sure if your problem stems from the same thing, but if it does, these will help you immensely. See what your doctor says.
