    Right, random question, but what time are you all going to bed?

    I used to be able to stay awake easily until 2-3am & still be up at 7 for work..No problem. 4 hours sleep was as much as I needed!

    Now, I seem to want to be in bed now, so 8:30! :blush: Is this normal? x

    I'm heading to bed about an hour earlier, but I tend to wake up more in the night now too so not sure the extra hour is even helping! ugh!

    I used to be able to stay awake until 10 or 11 during the week and until whatever early hour of the morning I would go to be on the weekend (usually 1 or 2). Now I'm lucky to make it to 9:30 when DH leaves for work and 11 on the weekends. I think I have yet to stay awake until midnight since I got my BFP in the middle of July.

    I'm usually nodding off on the sofa at 8.30. I'm really struggling to make it past 9.30. I used to be able to stay up till midnight before! I kinda like it tho. I used to suffer with mild insomnia. But now I sleep soooooo well and my bed just feels so comfortable!

    See, I go to bed fine. But I wake up every 2 hours in the night, & I'm normally awake for about 15-20 minutes when I do wake up. And then I can't get comfy!

    And when I have to get up in the mornings, I literally have to drag myself out of bed :blush: I have to leave for work at 8:05 to be there for 8:20, & this morning it was 7:55 before I even got out of bed.

    I usually go to sleep between 12-1am because I don't have to get up until 7:30. However, some nights I get tired earlier and go to sleep at 10-11pm, but then I wake up earlier.

    I work from home, or at an office really close to here, so I used to go to bed around midnight and get up at 7:30 or so.

    For the last week I've been needing my bed any time from about 8 onwards, then sleeping badly/lightly/full of dreams, and waking up about 6:30 totally unable to go back to sleep again.

    Mind you, it's really warm and humid here, I'm not sure if that's a reason, too :)

    Between 10 pm and midnight. It really depends on if I take a nap. My son naps for 3 hours in the afternoon, and if I nap with him I won't be tired again till midnight, but without the nap normally 10 pm or 10:30 pm.

    It's completely random and no matter how tired I am, sometimes I'm not getting to sleep until 3-4am. Other times I'm out by 10pm. I often wake around 4-5 in the morning and can't get back to sleep and other times I'm waking up at 8-9am. I also nap during the days when I can.

    The joys of insomnia. :rolleyes:

    I used to be in bed around 10, getting up at 6 in the morning. However, it always took me at least an hour to fall asleep, so I was getting to sleep around 11.
    Now I'm in bed by 9 at the absolute latest...usually 8:30!! It still takes me a while to fall asleep, although not usually an hour. And I find I'm up a lot during the night. Last night I got up 8 times to pee! Crazy!

    I'm usually in bed by 3-4am and wake up in the afternoon since I work from home. Recently, about a week before finding out, I've found it a struggle to stay up that late. I do it anyway since I need to work. I didn't think the tiredness would hit so fast!
