    Hey all, it is 1:30am est and I can't sleep! Between getting up every 30 mins to pee and just staring into space, I am getting not sleep! Is this normal? Has this happened to anyone else?

    YES.
    My mind starts racing. I just hit 6 weeks and I finally got a good sleep in (extra stuff was on my mind, not just the embryo) but I also tried one Unisom before bed and that knocked me on my bum just enough to make me rest a few nights ago.

    I can't sleep either. Mind won't switch off and every little twinge makes me anxious. Then I have to get up to check I'm not bleeding. Am totally irrational and absolutely exhausted.

    Welcome to pregnancy!!!! I have always said that I spent the 9 months of pregnancy preparing for being up all hours of the night because I couldn't sleep!!!

    Thankfully, I'm only getting up twice a night now to pee and my sleeping is getting a bit more restful again!

    Yeppers!!! and I still haven't had a good night sleep since it started at around 5 weeks. I don't lay awake thinkign about baby and twinges... but i can't seem to stay in a good sleep. I do get vivid dreams, but im contantly tossing and turning or feeling achy, restless, or sometimes its m/s keeping me up.

    Most nights when im tossing and turning and feeling restless... i just think its baby padding his or her arms about keeping mommy awake. I'm sure that has nothing to do with it, but its a comforting thought.

    Yep, drove me almost mad being awake all night and then so tired during the day.
    Thankfully, the insomnia only lasted around a week and now I can sleep any time. In fact, I may take a nap right now :sleep:

    I have it too. I can always fall asleep just fine... I haven't started waking up to go to the bathroom yet though.
