Im a zombie

It's 7AM I probably got about 3 hours of sleep last night.
I just want to have record of this so Carsyn can read it later in life.

I don't know what is going on with my child. I feel so helpless. We had several weeks of great sleep through the night then starting on Thurs night it started going down hill. She has a runny nose and I could hear her snoring and gasping for air which goes with my sleep apnea possibility.

This is what happended last night/this morning.

Also the bedtime battle is getting ridiculous. I have to end this.

Carsyn finally went to sleep at 8:40 after starting bedtime at 7:55. She had had a late nap due to a car ride from Columbia.

I went to bed at 9 seeing as how I was exhausted from being up pretty much since 4:45 that morning. At 10:30 Carsyn woke screaming- Danny went in and I came in after she wouldn't stop. She had a small dirty diaper. She immediately went back to sleep. She seemed to have gas and/or acid reflux. I got in bed at 11:00- she woke back up at 11:30. I let her cry a tad- I went in she just wanted me to pat her not pick her up. Then she immediately went back to sleep. I laid down on the floor beside her crib thinking she might wake back up soon. I could hear the gasping for air and snoring. I laid/slept on the floor until 1. I had been in my bed 15 minutes and she woke back up screaming at 1:20. I went in- she immediately requested milk (oh jeez here we go again) I gave it to her because I knew it would help her acid reflux. She passed back out shortly after. I got into the guest bed at 2. At 4:45 she woke screaming- I walked in her room- she kept pointing to the door saying Go. I told her it was still night time. I walked out and let her see the dark and then we went back to her room. I rocked her for 30 minutes- still not going to sleep. I put her in her crib. She started screaming. I walked out and went to my bedroom- of course I couldn't go back to sleep. I went and got her and brought her to our bed- she started screaming even louder. So then what does an exhausted and stressed mommy do? I start crying even louder- sobbing pleading for her to go to sleep. She lays down beside me and goes to sleep somewhere probably around 5:45- it's 7- we've beeen up for 20 minutes.

One word, Benadryl, ha! Although it did not work on mine. I promise it will get better, it's times like these that will make you appreciate the good moments. Now you know why there is 5 years between mine. Hang in there and in the meantime buy some B12 for yourself,ha!! Becky
