why am I awake at 5am?

Why in the heck am I wide awake at 5:00am?!? I woke up around 4 and couldn't fall back asleep, and finally got out of bed around 4:45. This totally stinks! I have been so exausted lately, and to not be able to sleep is just so not fair! Haha.
Anyways. I have been meaning to write a post lately, but just haven't gotten around to it. =)
Happy New year everyone! Josh and I had dinner at Denny's, and then just spent the evening at home watching The Office. We watched the ball drop, then I went to bed! Such an exciting night!
We have some friends that came up to visit yesterday, and are up until tomorrow morning. We love having friends come visit! And I was lucky enough to get yesterday and today off work! We are planning on going sledding today, but it looks like the weather may not cooperate with us. (the crazy wind is what woke me up this morning!) We may just drive up and play for a few minutes. We'll see.
I think I forgot to tell everyone what we had decided regarding the baby. We had talked about it, and decided not to find out! I still don't want to find out, but now Josh is wanting to find out. Guess we will have to talk about it some more. I still have 10 weeks until my next ultrasound anyways, so we have a little time. =)
Speaking of the baby, the 4 of us (Our visiting friends are expecting 10 weeks ahead of us) went to Babies R Us yesterday and did our registries! Fun fun! I am so excited. (and completely freaked out too, but I think that's normal! haha) I think the baby has begun to suck my brain cells. They aren't kidding when they say you lose IQ points when you are pregnant! haha. I am constantly forgetting stuff, stuttering and even forgetting what I am saying, while I am saying it. Just ask Josh... He gives me a hard time for it.
My morning sickness is still there, though still not as bad as it was the first few weeks. Now I just have a cold. Sore throat, super congested, runny nose, headache, sinus crap. Ugh, and I can't even take anything for it until I am through my first trimester, which isn't for 2 more weeks! blah. I hope It goes away soon!
Oh, and work is going better! I am not miserable there anymore, which is great! A couple people still bug me, but I just ignore them for the most part. haha. But I am really glad that that whole situation has gotten better. It definitely makes the days better when I don't dread going to work. The schedule still sucks, but oh well. (I have worked 6 of the past 8 weekends. we have 5 techs. only 2 work on the weekend. we shouldn't have to work more than 1-2 weekends a month each. not fair? I know!)
Anyways, I am going to sign off for now. Hope you all have a great weekend!

I was up at 5 too, and I don't have a pregnancy to blame.

Registering for baby stuff sounds like so much fun - especially if you have a preggo friend along!

And you're right about losing brain cells. I think I actually lost half my brain when I had twins.

I was up early as well. I have NO idea why...

You are so brave not finding out. I told Mr. Newlywed that should we ever be blessed with a pregnancy I NEED to know. I'm a huge fan of the stereotypical boy/girl colors :)

i have started considering not finding out, but i don't think i'm 100% sold on it yet. i'm a planner. that's what i do for a living, so i'm sure i'll want to plan this too.

i was waking up at 5:00 a.m. for a few weeks and then that passed. during those few days, my husband slept in the guest room so i could fall back to sleep more easily. he's back in our bed now. ;)

Glad you were able to get a couple days off! Not sure I could go without knowing... Do you have an instinct about the sex?

Cheers to 2009!!

Wow about already registering! I remember my first trip to babies r us. I think we had to go home and take a nap because it was so overwhelming. I'm sure registering with a friend was better. :) Happy New YEar!

Just stopping by to see how my fellow "expecting mama" is doing! As for the baby sucking away brain-cells, dont worry. Once this baby is a toddler and you get pregnant again, you will have lost so many brain cells that you dont even notice it the second time around : )
Im in the SLEEPY stage....I sleep for hours a day...I dont know ow on earth you are going to work everyday but I applaude just good for nothing for a few more weeks...
: )

You were up at 5am because it's evidence of God's sense of humor. You see while pregnant you wake up at all hours of the day and night to prepare you for when the baby is here. Unfortunately the nasty side effect is that you are sleep deprived before the baby is even born, which sucks. On the bright side, babies are cute and
squishie. :) lol
