The Streak has Ended....

Monday, June 1, 2009

I was hoping that my pregnancy had cured my brain of these night terrors but I guess not because I had another one last night. The last time I had one was before the Ladies Retreat in November.

I think they are worse on Brian than they are on me because I only vaguely remember them, But for him he is woken up by his wife screaming and basically all around freaking out. Last nights really freaked him out because it hadn't happened in so long that he wasn't used to it anymore, Oh yeah and probably because I am pregnant too, he probably thought I was in labor or something was going on with the baby.

100% of my night terrors now are about bugs usually roaches, It is always the same scenario though I am lying in bed and the bugs are crawling across me on the bed. Last night though it was a gigantic spider crawling across the wall. I remember when I was younger and I would get them (back then it was always snakes and tarantulas) I would go crawl in bed with Kimberly because it was so real to me that even when I was awake I was convinced that there really were snakes or bugs in my room.

I'm thinking the thing that triggered last nights night terror though was how we slept on our mattress on the floor since the carpets were supposed to be installed today. Ill post pictures of the crazy state that our house is in at the moment a little while later today.

Oprah did a show about night terrors awhile back, I was going to link it in this post but I cant seem to find the video online. It was scary watching it happen to someone else and then to have Brian tell me that that is exactly how it is when I do it. Its weird. I hope its not genetic, poor Brian will never get any sleep.

Oh no... that sounds terrible. I don't have night terrors, but I have terrible anxiety dreams.

I love the Pampered Chef covered baker, and I'm happy I got it. I don't use it a TON but I use it a few times a month (I don't really make tons of casseroles, but I use it for those I do make.) It also is good looking, I put it in my hutch.

I get night terrors about bugs too! I haven't gotten one in like 2 months, but I always wake Tony up when it happens. He says that I'll be screaming and kicking and I'll get so scared that I'll actually jump out of bed and run out of the room and wake myself up! So scary.

Aww Keri!

I get them, too, they are most scary when I've been away from home for awhile and then return, or when I've been stressed.
