So last night I was telling my husband about our friends who have twins --- and how exciting it was that they got to sleep through the night. A full 8 hours! I was really happy for K&J and found it very encouraging news - that yes, twins too, can be put on a schedule and actually sleep.
A funny look came over my husband's face.
"How old are they?", he asked.
I replied that I thought they were around 9 or 10 weeks old.
In an incredulous voice (and probably just a scotch higher than his normal Matt voice), he said, "And they are just NOW sleeping through the night??!!??"
How I just laughed at him.
What did you expect? A full night of sleep at 2 weeks old?
And my, oh my. How I will probably not be laughing in just a few short weeks.
But honestly, at this point, anything longer than a 2 hour stretch sounds amazing to me.
Sleep, which has been hard to come by, most of my pregnancy, is now virtually non-existent.
The babies are all up in my ribs and most likely interfering with my breathing, so even laying on my side makes me feel like I am slowly suffocating to death.
It's going to be a looongg 7 or 8 more weeks --- that's right, I am 30 weeks today!!!
But I know it's all worth it for my little M&M's. :)
