I didn't sleep until 4:30am this morning. I was absolutely exhausted, so much so I felt sick. I wanted to sleep, but I just couldn't! I don't know why..I was up and down to the loo every 45 mins though while I was awake, and then I had to be up about 7am for college! I haven't had any sleep today because of college, and then work. I've just got in, got into bed and CANNOT sleep!
Pleaase babies..Let your mummies have some sleep! xx
I thought it was only me! I keep waking up at 2.40am every morn and takes me at least an hour n half to get back to sleep! Ive started to sit up and read until my eyes start going, im shattered when get up to take kids to school. Dreading next week when i back at college and work!
For the past thousand billion nights (okay fine, Im exaggerating) I have woken up around 230am... I goto sleep by 9pm at the earliest, but this is very rare... usually I am in bed around 10-11pm... yet I ALWAYS wake up around 230am and am unable to go back to sleep. My eyes just spring open, and open they stay. My body is tired and uncomfortable beyond belief... and believe me, after having this happen night after night after night, its starting to catch up with me.
I work 7am-4pm most days during the week, and by the time Friday gets here, Im totally dragging my ass, which makes my day feel 10x longer, when all I want to do is go home to bed.
(Note: Waking up at 6am, going to bed at 9-11pm -- there should be no reason why I cant sleep PAST two freakin' thirty am!)
Has anyone else had this problem and found any solutions? Im exhausted!!!!
(I realize this is probably due to hormones, but Im tired!)
Im still waiting for the morning to come where I "wake up and suddenly feel more energized"... but at this point, I dont think its going to come fast enough!
Hey, me too. The waking up at 2.30am thing is happening to me too. Glad to know I'm not alone. Anyone know why we wake up in the middle of the night (apart from the toilet). If I get up to pee, I know I will have trouble getting back to sleep...so I try and hold it if I'm not desperate.
Yes! I've been waking up at 2.30, 4.30, 6.30 pretty much every night! i don't think I've had a full nights sleep in over 10 days. Sometimes I wake needing a pee, sometimes I have cramps, other times I just seem to wake for no reason! It's most frustrating given how tired I am, even if I *was* sleeping enough!!
I also can't sleep, I always wake up for the 3-times-a-night wee and i can never go back to sleep. thoughts of bean swirling around in my head!! I bet this is a cruel way to prepare us for a crying baby in the night!
ugh, ME TOO. Wake up every night between 2-230 and cant' go back to sleep for love or money. I finally do sorta go to sleep and this whole week my 3 year old has woken me up at 4 wanting to get in bed with me. Up another 30 mins at least. Then the alarm goes off at 645 and i'm sooooo tired i want to cry. And my stupid hateful DH acts like i've been sleeping straight since 9pm and whines because I'm moody!!!! I want to smack him in the head. KA POW!
I am the same! So glad others are struggling too. I have settled down to a 3-a-night-pee, rather than the 5 or 6 I had a few weeks ago.
I am WIDE awake at 2.10 am, take a good hour to get back to sleep after my pee - then PING, wide awake again at 5 am, and as I get up at 5.45 am, I just get up when I wake up as I know if i fall asleep again I will be super tired when I get up.
But the one that gets me is the 11.30 pm wide awake thing - no matter what time I go to sleep... Even if it's only been half an hour sleep I've had.
Maybe we should start a wee 'in the early hours' chat thing?! Lilly, I like your thinking on our bodies training us for baby's arrival... That's a good reason to get Mr Windswept up when I am awake too - help train him!!
I am not tired at night though, seem to get a second wind. But the afternoons at work are really hard work.
