I have hit the point in my pregnancy where sh*t gets real. I’m lucky to have had it pretty easy so far, but inevitably, I knew the time would come when the dreaded RLS (restless legs syndrome) would return for me.
Instead of a normal amount of “not sleeping” that pregnant women endure, there is an added horror of an almost ghoulish grip that comes for your legs just as your about to doze off. Baths, magnesium, potassium, massage, stretching, you name it, I’ve tried it. The only thing that seems to be working is knowing that I won’t sleep until after 2:00 am (which is around the time I start my yoga video) and eventually knowing it’ll end.
My dear brother suggested I start blogging. What else do the night people do? I might as well give it a try. Nothing to lose when I have these nighttime blues.
I’ll start with some words on my current vacation situation- a pit stop in Savannah on our way to see family in Florida. Originally this trip was supposed to be with my husband but work and nursery prep hindered that. Luckily my sister-in-law (KK) was down for a road trip.
We got to Savannah around 11:00 pm and stayed at The Hotel Indigo in the downtown historical district- it was heaven (even though I was up till 3am and fell asleep half standing over the bed watching…I want to say Parks and Rec, can’t be too sure though).
We woke up, KK and Sawyer got some good snuggles in, we jumped on the bed, and packed up. Brunch was at Collin's Quarter, where they were VERY kind when I knocked over my iced coffee onto Sawyer’s Brioche french toast… 60 seconds after they gave it to me. Can’t praise the customer service enough for the quick replacement of our ruined breakfast items. Sawyer was NOT impressed by me.
We snapped a few photos and were on our way to Florida!
