Another disadvantage of the NICU

Most disadvantages are somewhat obvious and I can expand on that another time.  But one that isn't as obvious that hits me at 12:30 am...

I still have to be up every 3 hours in order to pump.  

Granted, I don't have to deal with colic, burping, lots of diaper changes, and inconsolable crying.  But even with the girls in the hospital, I still don't get any sleep.  Miraculously my body has already trained itself to wake up every 3 hours on its own, so I do not have to set an alarm.  And, at least Jason doesn't have to wake up as well.  But let me tell you...uninterrupted sleep would be nice about now...  And I know I'll be sitting here again at 3:30 am.
