sleep deprivation-

Ungh. My sleep has not been what one would call whole this week. It comes in bursts, interrupted segments. I am really annoyed with my boss right now, because I am exhausted and I'm not feeling well, and I am just pissy. I'm sleep deprived, I'm agitated, achy, and BBLLLAAAAAHHHHH.

I've woke up with a migraine the past, oh, 4 days. Been taking lots of Tylenol, it helps some... but not much. I am very sore, lots of shoulder tension, neck pain. Still a little congested, but it's not productive congestion.

I also beamed my head on the corner of my CD rack today while I was cleaning, so now I have a bruise on my hairline above my forehead. I iced it up so the bruise isn't very visible, but I can definitely feel it. My teeth are also bothering me, but I really really don't want to go to the dentist. I think it's more my gums than my teeth... I don't know what's up with them. But, I'm annoyed.

I feel like I'm just falling apart this week. I don't feel good. When I don't feel good I am super whiny... so... sorry about the whining.

Anyway, since it's after midnight, I am officially 8 days past ovulation.

I don't know when I'm going to test. I have one test at home, and I don't really want to buy more... sooo, I'm going to try and hold out until 12 days past ovulation. Which I think is Monday. But you all know how that goes with me and willpower... I'm a *POAS addict. But I'm going to try and stay strong.

Speaking of willpower though... I haven't bothered temping this entire cycle, you should be proud of me. I just decided I didn't feel like it, didn't need to because of the monitoring, and I'm working such crazy hours it's probably a good thing I'm not charting.

Is it the weekend yet? I'm really looking forward to a good solid day off.

* POAS= Pee On A Stick

Sleep deprivation is torture. You might get some relief with lavender oil.

Big ((hugs))!! Sleep deprivation really is awful and your body is exhibiting all the stress it is suffering from that. Will you consider homeopathic sleep remedy? It's called Calms Forte.

Wishing you rest, sleep, healing, and a BFP. xoxo said...

I hope you get tons of sleep this weekend!! And that your bruise and gums stop hurting :(

When I was moderating comments I accidentally deleted this one from iamstacey @

I didn't mean to delete it. I was trying to publish it. Sleep deprivation is evil. Ack.

"Keepin' my fingers crossed for you! :) Two follicles with IUI is an awesome chance! I had three follies with IUI, and it finally did the trick!"

Thanks for the well wishes everyone :)

Most of the sleep deprivation stems from the hours I'm working, so I don't think there's much I can do. But I will try some aroma therapy maybe, and some relaxation exercises, before bed. Maybe they'll help. Can't hurt though :)

POAS is difficult NOT to do. Hoping you get tons of sleep and a little mental break but most important a BIG FAT +.
