Im sleeping worse but I was wondering most if you were. I wonder if becoming a light sleeper since becoming a mommy for the first time and baby moving is waking me up this time because with Madison when my head hit the pillow I slept hard all night long.
Probably does not help that I have nights like last night where she is crying at 3:30am because she forgot to give her daddy a hug and kiss before bed.... UGH sorry kid but im not letting you wake your daddy up to just hug and kiss him at 3am. She did this a couple weeks ago yelling for me when i went in her room she just wanted to tell me she loves me.... ok thats nice but not at 3am. Then she sits in there and plays for an hour or so and it takes me 2-3 hours to fall back alseep.
i lacked sleep last time as well cause i spent a lot of time in the bath, watching my baby's hiccupswith the water bounce in my belly button in the middle of the night. i'm doing that this time as well. at least if i can't sleep, i can certainly keep myself entertained!
I am sleeping worse. I agree with Lindsey. I used to be a sleeper that could sleep through a bomb before kids, but now I sleep so lightly. I also am not able to take a nap after work or go to bed early as much. And the kid will still wake me up at night too. So, yes, I am sleeping worse, but I think it has to do with more than just the pregnancy!
Yes. The baby wakes me up a lot. The other night I woke up at around 4am and my husband had his hand on my belly while he was sleeping. It was really sweet, except that the baby was kicking the crap out of his hand which is what woke me up!
I am sleeping worse, I also think it's because I became a much lighter sleeper since having Rocky. I'll hear him made a sounds, wake up instantly, and be up for two or three hours not able to get back to sleep

Compared to my first-yeah a lot worse. But probably about the same or a little better than I did with my last pregnancy. I think I know a little bit more about how to deal with it, as well as have more support and can go to bed early when DH is here if I really need to.
Sleep?! What's that?? LOL. I sleep like a rock, always have. Until....now. I am such a light sleeper, I feel like I am never getting that deep sleep and I toss and turn all night long. I also wake up starving.

Yes! For me it's worse. I had a terrible time sleeping when I was pregnant with Kaiya when I hit the 3rd trimester....this time I'm already having a terrible time...so it's the same but just started getting bad WAY earlier!
