Brilliant or Delirious....You decide!!!

I have been having insane insomnia....EVERY NIGHT....I am able to fall asleep with no problem and then bam (not an Emeril type bam...just a normal bam)I wake up after about four hours of sleep and CAN NOT fall back asleep....

So this morning my insomnia started early...at like 2:15....as I laid in bed and stared at my clock I realized It's Groundhog's Day (insert cheesy line from movie because everyone has been spewing them all day). I don't quite understand the point of Groundhog's Day. Spring doesn't start until March 21 REGARDLESS! To be honest, I thought it was more of a thing for the kids....ya know a silly little craft to make in school (I used to do one with my kindergarten class where we colored groundhogs, glued them to a Popsicle stick, cut a slit in the bottom of a paper cup and put the groundhog inside the cup with the stick poking out the bottom. The kids could then make the groundhog pop up...It was cute).

As I am laying in my sleepless wonderland last night I got to thinking....how cool would it be if there was something like a Groundhog's Day for infertiles? Let's say a cute animal (maybe a bunny) pops his head out and lets you know if you are going to get pregnant! Instead of going to the RE on day three you can go see the Fertility Bunny (or maybe it should be a frog ...so it rolls off the tongue better....fertility frog...hmmmm). They could let you know if your cycle would work...Wouldn't you pay to know that info!?!?? I haven't worked out all the details yet. Maybe I'll do that when I can't sleep tonight!

I know you are all thinking "This is brilliant! I can't believe I never thought of this before". It's true...my true genius thoughts come when I am tired....

Just wait to see what I crank out after I have a baby =)

P.S. No blood work for me tomorrow! Nurse had no problem with scheduling for Monday (which I most likely won't make it til...She is due over the next few days!)

I have insomnia also. It's absolutely horrible. I can fall asleep easily but wake up wide awake. :(

Love it. :)

When you hire the frog, can you make him tell me whether an expectant mom will pick me (or not) too? Thanks.

I hope you are able to sleep longer than 4 hrs tonight!

I think that this idea rocks!

Hope the sleep gets better for you. I had something like this once and accupuncture really helped me.

Hope you have a better night in dream land with the fertility frog!

Just how do I get ahold of the fertility frog?? ;-)

Prayers for a peaceful sleep tonight! (Ribbit ribbit....)

Insomnia sucks. I had it horribly in the weeks following our m/c.

A little bunny would be fabulous!! But then, just like with symptoms, we would be rooting for a bunny in every corner of our dreams, so if we dreamed of a picnic in a park and there was a bunny in it, we would have to evaluate every facet of the dream and speculate as to whether it was "the" bunny or if it was just a silly picnic bunny.

Either way, I hope you find a cure for your insomnia quickly!!

Definitely want a fertility frog. This post made me laugh out loud - hmmm... laughter: something that is absolutely necessary during this crap called IF.

Hugs! Fingers crossed. I'm due Saturday or Sunday -ish. And being the pessimist that TTC has made me become, I'm already planning for cycle 11.

Love it! I'd totally prefer a fertility frog over a stupid poas BFN ;)
