Wet Dream

27 Apr

Holy night sweats, Batman.

I am completely out of practice when it comes to this whole pregnancy thing. With Bee, I was mostly pregnant during the winter, which was not only awesome because I felt like I had some magical superhero power to stay warm all the time, but also saved me the expense of finding a winter coat that would button over my expanding waistline because I was hot ALL THE TIME.

However, when I was in my first trimester with Cletus, I was convinced that my uterus was infested by a reptilian baby because I was freezing. Like Kramer on Seinfeld core-temperature-lowering cold.

That is, until last night.

I have been noticing some, well, wetness issues lately when I’m sleeping. Initially I would wake up to my thighs pressed together sandwiching a layer of sweat? Urine? Amniotic fluid?

I figured that neither peeing my pants or my water breaking would defy the laws of
gravity so I must just be sweating myself.

I could surely handle some wet legs every now and then.

Again, until last night.

You see, last night I woke up sweating more profusely then Michael Jackson at a Cub Scout meeting.

What? Too soon?

Anywho, I was literally trembling cold, drenched and wondering how I could be sweating and freezing my ass off at the same time. Aah, the mysteries of pregnancy.

But I gotta say, I’ll take the night sweats over peeing the bed any day. (I was really starting to think that Poise or Huggies Overnights in size 31 were in my near future.)

    I started the night sweats when I was pregnant, but they never stopped. I went from childbirth to peri-menopause. Once or twice a week, I’ll wake up with a river running between my breasts. I usually have to get up, towel off and change pajamas. As a 40-something, I’ve got a few years on you, so hopefully you’ll get a break from it after Cletus pops out… but like the terminator, they’ll be back.

    Do you get the awesome sweaty-sleep hair like the kids do when they take a really long nap? If so, please post photos.

    Never “too soon.” Love it!
