I hardly sleep, and when I do I’ve been having wedding nightmares… it’s not fun. However, soon it’ll be over and you’ll be able to go back to sleeping peacefully!

You are not alone.  I think the closer that we get, the more that we wish it was just here (or over.)  I know that it is going to be one of the best days of my life, and we are going to have a blast, but really I have about enough of the planning and such.  It’s almost as if the fun and happiness has been taken out of it.  I was having horrible dreams every night for the last couple of weeks, then all of a sudden they stopped.  I thought, “Phew” that’s over.  Not so much.  They started back this past weekend.  Last nights was minor.  All I remember is that the diamonds were falling out of my engagement ring.  Ick!  We are almost there Girl!  Stay stronge.  You will be at the big day soon and then you can kick back and enjoy that Honeymoon of your’s!  : )

I haven’t been able to sleep either. I can’t fall asleep, and I can’t sleep past 6 am. No alarms, no nothing, but still can’t sleep. I also have woken myself up sobbing a few times… it was weird. That’s never happened before.

no – in fact i’m the opposite! I’ve GAINED 10 pounds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and I’m usually pretty strict about my way of eating – as I eat low carb and very healthy – but the stress and corn chips have gotten to me. lol.

the sleep thing is a whole other issue (i don’t sleep well as it is and never have). But yeah. it sucks. and – IT’S ALMOST HERE!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!! 🙂 not only that – IT’S ALMOST OVER!!!!!!!!!! lol.

congrats and good luck!

Yes, here too!! I have been falling asleep fine, but waking up several times in the middle of the night and also cant’ sleep past 6. It’s kept me from excersizing because I’m exhausted all the time! I’ve had every wedding nightmare you can think of, from no dress to diamond in  engagement ring breaking, no one coming, etc.

I have also been losing weight, it’s so strange! I can’t even believe what the scale says now and I’ve been eating like crazy and not working out at all.. strange! I also am looking forward to it all being overwith, I want my life back!

Hey we’re date twins! I wish I could say I’ve lost my appetite over this, but I haven’t and every where I go there’s always food! And with 4 more days to go there’s just no diet existing oh well. But I should try to eat healthy thanks for that reminder.

As for lack of sleep I feel you on that. Yesterday was my FI’s birthday so I had no time to go buy him a gift since we’re always together and so forth so I just gave him a card and a monetary gift. Anyways, he woke me up at 5 a.m. And today with only 4 more days to go I go and wake up at 5:00 a.m. 

And yes everybody keeps on asking me if I’m nervous too. At the beginning when that question started showing up I wasn’t. I was just happy I was getting married. Now I cringe every time someone asks me because they make me feel nervous. I don’t know why. I’m mostly stressed I have a million things to do and not enough time….

Yes yes and yes. I lost enough weight in the last couple of weeks that I have to get my dress taken in a bit – which is stressing me out further, thus continuing the cycle! While many would say this is a good thing, I wasn’t really unhappy with my weight to begin with, and the not being able to eat thing is really unhealthy and making me worn down. I got slammed with a really nasty head cold yesterday and I’m just hoping it doesn’t get any worse, and that I get it out of my system before the wedding! Sleep has been tough too, and being so congested really isn’t helping. 🙁

@farmersdaughter- I’ve had a crazy sore throat and a sinus thingy for the past week. It needs to go away!

I agree with everyone too! I keep waking up in the middle of the night thinking, oh, I have to do this, that, and the other. I keep telling people I’m just ready for it to be over and they think that’s a horrible attitude. I just mean I can’t wait til we are  married!!!

@dancergmu3 I can’t wait for this all to be over too. I just can’t wait to go on our honeymoon and relax for a change.

Aw, you can do it! It will be great! Drink copious amounts of water (to counterbalance the tears!), force yourself to smile a little more (releases the good stuff), and just know that it’ll all be awesome in the end.
