I have no idea why this has taken me so long to figure out. I mean, come on, it's pretty obvious, or at least should be.
The reason for my crabbiness isn't necessarily because I am knocked up. I mean, I am sure some of my raging hormones are contributing to it. But I think the real reason for it is...insomnia.
On average, I have been getting only 2-4 hours of sleep per night. That makes me BEYOND exhausted allllll day long and also shortens my fuse to where it's almost non-existent.
I have done some research and found that 78% of pregnant women go through this! Who knew! I didn't have this problem with the munchkin. So once again, as I write this, I am feeling REALLY exhausted and have a short fuse but I am trying to remind myself why I am feeling this way and trying to keep my bitchiness at bay. It's pretty difficult I must say.
I have sent an email into my doctor to see if there is ANYTHING I can do. Sure, I have read all the suggestions online, all of which I have tried, and NOTHING is working. I just can't function on 2-4 hours of sleep - even when I am not pregnant! I need way more than that.
So...here's hoping to find some sort of solution and hopefully SOON!!
