so yeah, it's 3:38 a.m.....

... and i'm awaiting my cocktail of benadryl and sudafed to begin working before i even attempt a go at sleep again. i've had pregnancy rhinitis since september, and i'll tell you what — i'm ready for that chapter to be closed.

the abbey is beginning to get past the sick she had this week -- a rough go of it with a head cold and an ear infection, poor lass.

my midwife gave me a cough syrup that is laced with codeine -- something that i wasn't aware i could take during pregnancy. however i soon remembered that codeine is kind of shitty. it REALLY knocked me out... for about three hours. but then i woke up in the middle of the night, took some more... but then it only sacked me for about 1/2 hour. and it's not a good type of sleep -- it's all weirdy and groggy, like when you are sleeping in a car and even though you are technically asleep, you can still hear everything going on around you. so i'm skipping the cough syrup tonight (this morning).

i feel it's best at times likes these to put on some firefly, grab my crossword puzzle book and hope for sleep to come. that's my plan now. wish me luck — and sleep.
