Getting some shuteye

Yeah, not happening right now.  Someone please tell me if I will  ever have a normal night of sleep again!  I fell asleep about 11 last night, late for me since I've been going to sleep about 8 lately.  I woke up for my mid sleep potty break at 2 a.m.  And then was wide awake, tossing and turning, waking Geron up, playing my handheld yahtzee game, worrying about the nursery and how we would fit everything in it, worrying about the baby and whether it would be healthy, worrying about whether I would be a good mom, til I finally realized I was supposed to be praying.  So, I started praying about all the things I was worrying about and began to feel a little more peaceful.  Then I started singing hymns to myself in my head about the power of Jesus and felt even more peaceful.  And then I realized I was supposed to be believing that God would answer my prayers and would even help me sleep, and I finally went to sleep.  I'm guessing this was around 4:45 or so.  I woke up at 6:30, from the best hour and 45 minutes sleep I've had in a while.  But someone, please tell me that I will find a time to get good sleep.  I'm the deepest sleeper I know and have ever heard of and I am NOT sleeping!!!  HELP!!!

You will get some sleep eventually. And don't buy into the trap of believing what people always say- that you will never sleep after the baby arrives. That just doesn't have to be so! You will figure out a schedule that works for your family, and it will be great. God knows your needs for rest as well as He knows your baby's needs. He will work it out. Trust HIM! I love you and i am praying always....
