Waking up in the middle of the night?


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!

I can't sleep either!

It's like my body won't allow me to sleep at night more than 3 or 4 hours. Then during the day I need a 2 or 3 hour nap.

Come on body! Gimme the 7/8 hours of night time sleep and I won't need naps!

Yep I know this feelin its usually about 3 or 4. I am exhausted too. Plus, although little, my bump falls sideways and my back really hurts so have ordered a body pillow which arrived this morning so will see if it works.
Also don't know is this is to do with the lack of sleep but suffering headaches, which add to not getting back to sleep. bleaugh!!!!!

Oh my, you are lucky to only wake at 02h30 in the mornings. I have the pleasure of waking at 12h00, 12h30, 02h45,03h00 and then again at 04h00!!

No idea why, bet this pattern seems to follow almost every single night.

My entire body feels battered and bruised by the time I have to get up for work at 05h00. I start work at 06h30 and get off at 15h00. Then I usually cannot wait to just plonk down and rest for a while....before getting ready to go to the gym.

Well, hopefully it will get better.

Yep I've had this too. I was waking around 2am between weeks 6 and 8 for no reason at all, then totally unable to get back to sleep.
For the last 10 days though, I have been waking up at 4.55am on the dot every night. I get up needing a pee, but I've been using the extra hour (as we usually wake up at 6) to snuggle into my hubby and have a bit of early morning So now I dont mind waking up at silly hours! I just make up for it by going to sleep by 9am, which keeps hubby happy as he can watch sky sports to his heart's content!!

I've the same prob, but I've no answer either.

I try not to nap during the day as I wake like a bear with a sore head and I'm then horrid to everyone... I've stopped drinking coffee as it taste so urgh at the mo, I'm trying to drink more water and plenty of orange juice.

If it makes sense or not I just feel so uncomfortable in my body; no matter how I lay it still not good. If I lay flat on my back I start feeling sick, if I lay on one side my bb's hurt and my tummy pulls, if I curl up I need to wee again!! I roll round and round the bed each and every morning between 2.30 and 6. When the alarm goes off, I sure as hell don't want o get up. It seems so cruel and very catch 22.. If anyone finds the magic answer, please let us know..

Sleep was something I used to have

Same here.. kicked it near the 11 weeks point. Wake up anytime after 1am, need bathroom and then can't get back to sleep again. Doze until first alarm goes off and then manage to settle enough that I nearly fall asleep right before the second alarm goes off. So then I feel worse and snooze on the train and all this nearly sleeping but not makes me feel rough all day.

GRRR!!!
