dazed and confused.

taking a red eye from LA to DC while 5.5 months pregnant is one of the dumber decisions i've made in life. of course i couldn't get comfortable and of course i couldn't fall asleep and of course i was hungry and thirsty the whole time and of course i had a window seat so i had to wake up the guy next to me one time when i just couldn't hold it any longer.

i came home and slept basically the entire day, woke up long enough to eat a bowl of cereal and watch the news, then fell back asleep. right now i'm incredibly hungry, completely exhausted, and really wishing TH was here to take care of me. TH - say hello to the queen mum for me! and bring me back something from borough market!

do you have any secrets for surviving long flights, especially red eyes? (my flight out to LA was fine - but then again it wasn't a red eye!)

I'd like to hear tips, too -- we head to Bangkok tomorrow. Just think,flights will get even more exciting for you when the little one arrives. Things were great when ours couldn't walk, but now I know I'll be chasing her up and down the aisles and trying to keep her from screeching (her new hobby) too loudly or frequently. Congrats on 5.5 mos.!
