Baby Brain: Ahhh Stress, What an Evil Thing

I have been doing pretty good with this pregnancy but the stress of the past few days I think is getting to me. I am not sleeping well and when I am sleeping I am having horrible nightmares. I blame two things.

1. The stress of Mr. Rogue getting hurt and needing surgery.
I know that life can change in the blink of an eye. I know things can come up and knock you right off your feet. I know that in the grand scheme of things that a thumb injury isn’t that bad but I cannot help but be terrified something horrible will happen during the surgery. I keep dreaming that he dies. It is taking my breath away.

2. I also blame ‘Grey’s Anatomy’, the tv show we are currently watching. Just last night the episode we watched before heading up to bed featured a pregnant woman that feel in the shower. She came into the emergency room to treat her wrist but the doctors found out that there was no heartbeat for the baby.

So all night I had nightmares. I would dream Mr. Rogue died in surgery and then I would dream that my babies heartbeat stopped. Then I would get up, get a glass of water, walk around the house trying to calm myself down only to go asleep again to have even more nightmares.

It wasn’t a good night at all. Time to start watching My Little Pony before bed I think.
