I couldn’t sleep again.

I didn’t even get tired enough to sleep last night. It technically is early morning now and the birds have woken up. They aren’t that loud this morning. Sometimes they are as loud as an alarm clock if the window is open. The window is open this morning because the cats have gone outside. I just hope that they don’t decide to bring a bird back in with them. It doesn’t happen often but last time I was chasing a bird that mister had caught at 5 am. It was flapping around scared of both the cats and me. I finally managed to chase it to the kitchen window so that it was able to get out again. That was a baby bird but still quite large. I think he was new to flying and unfortunately fell in the path of my cat. Mister caught a full sized rat the other month. He’s quite a large (also a bit fat) cat. I remember when he used to have a collar on with a bell when he was younger. He used to never get anything because they heard him coming. He refused to wear a collar as he got older. I managed to slip them off while he was outside. I don’t know how he did it but he would come back in without the collars. Mimi used to go in a huff under the coffee table when I put one on her. I decided to stop buying them eventually because they just hated them. I have them microchipped in case they get lost. They never go far away from home though because they are spoilt here. They spend half their lives snuggled on my bed sleeping.

I also can’t sleep when I’m uncomfortable. I kept getting stomach pains throughout yesterday. It still is a bit sore now but worse when I had my day clothes on because my stomach bloated too much to comfortably fit on my trousers. I’m not pregnant but most likely just getting fatter. I was worried at one time but I kept doing tests which came back negative and kept having my monthlies so I put it out of my mind. If I had been pregnant I would have been 31 weeks by now so I would have been much bigger than my current bloat. I only had a two day monthly and then spotted for the rest of that week last month. I still haven’t ruled out a cryptic pregnancy but it’s just a matter of waiting because sooner or later I will find out one way or the other. It does worry me but I can’t do anything about it at this point. I’m convinced that I just have messed up hormones causing my issues.
