No one mentioned to me the pregnancy mono. I know it’s not fair to people who have actually had mono for me to call it that. I’ve never had it. And I’m sure it’s awful. But it’s the best expression I can come up with of the fatigue I’ve been feeling this week. While I still have periods of insomnia in the middle of the night, there’s pretty much no time during the day that I couldn’t be asleep within five minutes of giving myself permission.

I’m a sleep junkie. Last night I made Damon take me out for linguine and clams to celebrate the baby head touching of that afternoon. While we were out we made plans for what we’d do to get closer to ready — empty some boxes, finish our birth plan, etc. I swore I was on it. Then when we got home I begged for a back rub and then announced that if I didn’t get to go to bed I was going to die.

Damon has taken to turning off the alarm. He figures I’ll get to work when I get to work, and that the rest is more important. He’s right. But man, you’d think I’d eventually get enough.

    • That’s an excellent question. Back in our neighborhood we have several car-owning volunteers. But now that we’re strangers in a strange land, it looks like taxi-cab city. Which is a good reminder to get a little stack of cash to keep available for the ride.
