Easter Sleepiness and 34 Weeks Pregnant

We didn't really do anything on Easter Sunday, well, we went to church and celebrated which is the most important!  We were sooo tired from the night before (having to get van towed home) that I could hardly stay awake.  Wow, I hadn't been that tired in a really, really long time.  

With everything in me I wanted to stay in bed that morning but I knew I had to fight the blanket demon and just get everyone ready.  We weren't gonna miss communion. I made a much needed visit to the coffee corner (in my kitchen) before waking everyone up.  Somehow I was able to get everyone and myself ready within an hour.  It's getting harder and harder to get away with that as our family grows.  I'm so stubborn about having to set the alarm earlier.  NOT a morning person.  That is an understatement.

I hated that I was so tired and couldn't really enjoy the day.  I wish I could of had my mom and dad over and spent time with them but I knew as soon as I got home I was gonna make a run for my bed.  What a party pooper I am beginning to be!  

During communion we didn't get our grape juice and cracker on time before they started praying.  I was saying a personal prayer that the girls wouldn't spill their juice on their very white Easter dresses.  Pastor started to pray and they were barely passing it to us.  As quick as we could we passed it to all the kids and quickly took our communion just after the prayer finished.

As soon as we got home I took my shoes off (probably chucked them across my bedroom) and fell out asleep for about 3 hours.  I could have slept allll the rest of the day but knew that wouldn't be good.  I thank my lucky stars (if there were such thing) that my husband has no problem taking over with the kids whenever I need rest.  I seriously think God was having mercy by bringing us together.  

I'm 34 weeks pregnant now and time is just flying by.  Boy, the body sure acts different in pregnancy the older you get.  I'm only 32 but notice a difference in the body achiness.  I wonder what it's like at 40?  Yesterday I was on the floor cutting coupons and it took a full minute to be able to get up because everything ached.

I took a visit to my favorite pregnancy website that I've used since I had my first and this is what they had to say.

How your life's changing:

By this week, fatigue has probably set in again, though maybe not with the same coma-like intensity of your first trimester. Your tiredness is perfectly understandable, given the physical strain you're under and the restless nights of frequent pee breaks and tossing and turning, while trying to get comfortable.

Yeah, the tossing and turning to get comfortable is sooo true!
