Pregnant Tiffany Thornton to set to welcome her first child, a baby boy, this summer… but she’s already getting prepared for one big parenthood shocker — sleepless nights.
In her first blog with Celebrity Baby Scoop, Tiffany wrote about her constant thirst… and subsequent need to pee, which has started to take a toll on her beauty sleep!
She wrote: “So I know they tell you to gear up for running on no sleep after the baby is born but what about before?
I’m now 7 months along and last night was my first night where I barely slept at all. I like to think of myself as quite a great sleeper. When you film on set for 14 hours a day, you learn to sleep pretty much anywhere. I always say a plane is my second bedroom. I’ve been blessed by the sleep fairy in my past, being able to fall asleep quickly and sleep through the night. Now that I’m pregnant there is always the ‘need-to-pee’ moment when your body jolts you awake and says, ‘I’m full, time to empty out that ice water you couldn’t resist right before bed.’ That I’ve gotten used to and am usually able to fall back asleep as soon as I crawl back under my warm covers.”
My first trimester this ‘need-to-pee’ moment happened probably 6 times a night. My second trimester seemed like a breeze with most nights only averaging 3 trips to my bathroom. Now that I’m in my third trimester, I’m back to 6 times a night.”
Tiffany went on to explained that her cravings for ice water are so strong especially at night that she keeps a thermos of ice water by her bed… but often goes through it during the night, which leads to more trips to the bathroom, of course!
She went on, writing: “I never really fell back asleep after I finished the ice water. I guess we shall see tonight if I can sleep, or if being 31 weeks pregnant has just introduced me to sleepless nights for the duration of my pregnancy,” adding, “In the end it’s all worth it, though, and I’ve been blessed thus far to not have had any major problems so I’ll keep the unquenchable thirst and sleepless nights and count myself lucky.”
Did you have trouble sleeping during your pregnancy?
