My brain and my body have an epic battle at 6am when I am suddenly awake (despite having no apparent real sleep). My body wants to get up and do stuff because for some unknown reason it is raring to go. Which is a really weird feeling. My brain on the other hand is logical and realises that four hours of broken sleep should not be enough to function throughout the day so wants to go back to sleep. Unfortunately, trying to go back to sleep in the morning is just as successful as sleeping at night so I just end up walking around like a zombie all day. That doesn't stop me from trying to force myself back to sleep most of the time though.
However, if I go against every fibre in my being and allow myself to get up early it seems I am actually quite productive. I don't understand how it is possible to feel so awake and fresh so early in the morning when I know I haven't slept anywhere near what I want. I guess it might be one of those amazing superpowers us pregnant women have? Maybe. I don't give in to it very often, but when I do I become a domestic goddess. What would normally take me hours to complete (because of constant procrastination) can be achieved in fifteen minutes. Possibly because I'm a lot more motivated to do it and also, maybe equally, because there aren't any interesting tv shows on that early to distract me. Either way T loves it when I give in to these moods. He even told me I could quit work if this is what will happen each day.
So I'm starting to think that maybe I should give in to my new body clock more and just bite the bullet and get up in the morning. It's obviously what my body wants, right? You know all everyone says to you when your pregnant (apart from how are you feeling?) is just listen to what your body is telling you. Afterall there are always nanna naps in the afternoon... and who doesn't love a nanna nap.
