2:15 am and I can't sleep!

The nurse gave me the Cervidil around 9:30pm to begin softening my cervix. I felt fine at first...same as I did when I got here and I even dozed off around 11pm. Well, now it's about 2;15 and I have been awake for the last 2 hours. My legs, back, and lower abdomen are cramping so bad! It's the feeling of the worst period you can imagine. I cannot get comfy in this awesome *sarcasm* bed! Then a few minutes ago, I was freezing. I woke poor sleepy Josh up to turn the temperature up and the nurse brought me an extra blanket. I am hoping to get a little rest. They are "waking me up" at 6am to remove the Cervidil, shower, eat a light breakfast, and then start the Pitocin to really get my labor moving along. Based on the discomfort from tonight (well, morning)...I will definitely be granting myself an epidural!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
