While You Were Sleeping

3 fer 3.

Third night in a row I am wide awake between 3-4 am! I was actually hungry pretty quickly last night, so I went straight to the mug of cereal hoping that would do the trick, but unfortunately, I was still up until about 6am and then drowsy enough to dose until 8. Thankfully I don’t feel that tired, but I imagine this is going to catch up with me!

I Google “is insomnia a sign of impending labor” and pretty much concluded NO it’s a sign of being very pregnant – bummer!! Ha ha.

A big bowl of oatmeal got me started on the day.

1/3 cup oats with milk + water + chia seeds + pinch salt stirred in a chopped peach and 1/3 cup cottage cheese at the end of cooking. Almond butter and Cville Cluster on top!

Earl Grey – hoping that tiny boost of caffeine does something good for me!

Happy 35th Wedding Anniversary to mom + dad! They were hoping for the baby to come today, but so far I don’t think that’s going to happen!

Love the old wedding photos! Beautiful!

Insomnia was a late pg sign for me too. Your body, mind, and hormones are busy at work. Soon!

I am convinced the insomnia late in pregnancy is to prepare you for the broken bouts of sleep you will be getting once your sweet baby arrives! Sleep deprivation was much easier to handle for me the second time around, but it is amazing how after a while your body just adjusts. Hang in there!

Happy Anniversary to your mom and dad! They certainly look too young to be married that long. I hope they have a special day. :)

I hope you don’t feel too tired today or maybe squeeze in a nap.

Wow, I LOVE your parents wedding party photo :-) Gorgeous bridesmaids dresses. Sorry you’ve been having trouble sleeping… restless nights are the worst. Happy Monday!

12 Sherry August 20, 2012 at 9:08 am

I found that all the waking up in the last few weeks actually was nature’s way of preparing me for all the splotchy sleep during several months of nighttime feedings for the baby.

Kath, I wanted to tell you – I don’t have a Trader Joe’s nearby but was down in Charlotte last weekend and made a TJ stop. I picked up smoked trout per your recommendation and opened a tin this weekend. Holy crap. It. is. so. good. I am so sad that I only got two tins! I’m definitely going to stock up next time I go. Thanks again. :)

Your mother’s dress is gorgeous! It is very 70’s but at the same time very current- I dream about finding dresses like that at vintage shops.

18 Kelly August 20, 2012 at 10:34 am

I was thinking the same thing!!!

19 Mom August 20, 2012 at 11:41 am

Thanks everybody, for the lovely anniversary wishes. And thanks about my dress. Laura was contemplating wearing it but decided not to, but there was some discussion of cutting it off for her to wear late in the night for dancing. I can’t bear to cut it, by all my friends are saying, “Chop away.” I won’t though. I’m saving it for granddaughter dress ups someday.

Reply

20 Linda August 20, 2012 at 2:19 pm

I loved seeing you in the dress after seeing Laura in it a few months back. You look great!! I agree – I wouldn’t be able to cut it either. Happy Anniversary!!

Pleases me you all like my bridesmaid dresses! I’ve been looking at them with Laura and think they’re a bit plain nowadays. Mine were really cool from the back.

hope you get at least a couple of good nights’ sleep before the baby comes!!

and your oatmeal bowl looks delicious!! how long did you let the peach and cottage cheese cook in?

Reply

27 KathEats August 20, 2012 at 10:21 am

Peach from the beginning, cottage cheese always stirred in at end

28 Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table August 20, 2012 at 9:46 am

I love the optimistic googling. :)

As far as inducing labor, my mom swears by a steak, pound cake, and a swim in the pool.

Reply

29 KathEats August 20, 2012 at 10:19 am

Haha… a whole pound cake?!

Reply

30 Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table August 20, 2012 at 12:00 pm

I think it was a slice (no doubt a large one) – grilled with a little butter and fresh peaches.

31 Mom August 20, 2012 at 12:33 pm

I make good pound cake. Come on down and have the baby in Durham!

What kind of almond butter do you use? It’s been looking so delicious in the past couple breakfast posts :P.

Naturally nutty cinnamon vanilla

38 Lauri August 20, 2012 at 10:19 am

At the end of my pregnancy i regularly found myself awake around 2 or 3 am to use the bathroom, and then not falling back to sleep for a few hours, until just before my alarm was ready to go off to head into work for the day. Those were some loooong drowsy days!!

39 Jennifer August 20, 2012 at 10:38 am

I love that picture – happy anniversary to your parents!

40 Katelyn August 20, 2012 at 10:44 am

That bowl of oatmeal looks so delicious with all of the different ingredients! Naturally Nutty Cinnamon Vanilla is THE best – I can go through a jar of it in less than two weeks. It’s really good smothered on graham crackers for dessert :) Side note – when I pulled up this post and saw the title, I really thought you were going to say that you had your son last night while we were all sleeping!! ;)

Happy Anniversary to your mom and dad :)

Do you use coaches oats? Is the final product different flavor and texture wise to quaker rolled oats?

Thanks! By the way the pictures you posted of your night out with Matt were beautiful. You looked radiant in them. Your black dress looked really pretty on you :)

Reply

53 KathEats August 20, 2012 at 3:58 pm

Thanks!

I cook with Coach’s oats maybe 20% of the time. I’ll usually note when I do. I like them a lot! They are about the same in flavor but a heartier texture.

54 Becky August 20, 2012 at 5:29 pm

I remember being told that if you had insomnia at the same time every night during the end of your pregnancy, that was going to be the time your babe would wake up for feedings once they arrived. It was true for me. Maybe your body is prepping for that?
