    i've stayed up the last few night while my DH went to bed to get to sleep first as ive developed a cracking snoreing habit with this pregnancy and its been keeping him awake so i let him get into a deep sleep then off i pop, he says he's only hearing me now before the alarm goes off when he's wakeing, result! i do kip a lot dureing the day though so am not really tired at bedtime... and the fact ive just got true blood 3 on dvd and ive been hooked on it the past wk wich does mean ive seen it a few times before he has so have to fight to keep my gob shut when we watch it together in the evenings... i was dying o tell him last night what sookie is!!

    Keljt I was just noticing when I responded to your other post that you were in Indiana and still awake. I live near Chicago! I obviously do not sleep either. Usually fall asleep b/t 5-6am and am up around 1pm. Guess we will all be ready for those late night feedings!

    Have you tried benadryl? It doesnt work for me anymore, either do my prescription sleeping pills. But some benadryl might get you through the next week or so! If I nap I definately cant fall asleep before the sun comes up. Sometimes I am so exhausted, I know what you mean!

    Mine has always been screwed up, just gotten worse. Benadryl is definately safe, and maybe it will help you get a complete night sleep! I am jealous you are on maternity leave :blush:. I am going to try to work until I deliver so I have more time at home afterwards. We get 12 weeks either way, and I would rather have it after LO is here. They will just have to deal with me being lazy! Good luck, I hope the benadryl works!

    I can deffo join this thread - grrrr haven't been sleeing hardly at all, went to bed at half past 12 last night, was still awake reading at 2am.
    woke up at 4 and 6 to pee and then at 8am with my son.

    Its been like this for about a week now - I think its the bodys way of preparing us for sleepless nights maybe! x

    I seem to have reverse insomnia i go to bed about 11 fall asleep then 2am wake for toilet then 4 am i am awake for good can't get back to sleep at all its driving me crazy. I tried going to bed earlier but that didn't work as i just tossed and turned till about 11:30 then fell asleep and the pattern continues.

    Sleep is hard for me to come by anymore. Even if I could sleep I can't lay in bed all night due to my hips pelvis and back pain. I'm just too uncomfortable.
