So, here I am, 35 weeks pregnant and just wanting to sleep!
I share a bedroom with a husband, 2 dogs, and 2 cats. As any pregnant woman does, I need to get up and pee every time anything even slightly wakes me up. The problem is, many things wake me up, and keep me up!
One cat wants to sleep on top of me, which is extremely uncomfortable now. The other cat attacks my feet every time I move them, and sometimes randomly. I throw her off the bed and she jumps right back on and attacks. All night. If she is not on the bed, she is getting into stuff. She steals shit off my dresser or nightstand and runs. I sometimes have to get up and chase her.
My husband sometimes snores, though not that bad lately. But one of the dogs snores. Both dogs fart and the smell is so bad that I need to fan myself or get up and move. One of the dogs gets on the bed every morning at about 5 and takes up more space than you ever imagine a beagle could.
Before being pregnant, these things would not bother me, as I did not have to pee everytime and I could get back to sleep without it taking me 30 minutes to get comfortable.
We can’t make the dogs sleep anywhere else because they will cry and pee. We can’t make the cats sleep anywhere else because one is EXREMELY vocal and will scream all night if the door is shut. She will also attack the other cat all night. If any of these pets are forced to sleep elsewhere, believe me, we will suffer.
So the point is, I have been saying I want to set up the aerobed in the nursery for myself. My husband flat out refuses to let his pregnant wife sleep on an aerobed. He says he will sleep there, but clearly that is not going to solve anything. The 4 pets CAN NOT go in there, so it leaves them with me. But we get into an argument everytime I mention putting the aerobed in there. Why can’t he understand I will be perfectly fine on it? And even if it isn’t all that comfortable, at least I won’t be woken up and kept up all night every night!!!
He is just so insistant that I don’t sleep on an aerobed. I feel like I have no choice but to suffer. I am tired of arguing with him about it. I could go set up the aerobed myself, but again, it will lead to a fight. I can’t sleep anywhere else because there is no other room in this house that I can shut a door to.
I JUST WANT SLEEP!
ETA: It’s 5:30 AM and I have been awake for 2 hours!
