My son wakes up at 4 am every night to nurse. After he nurses I have to pee, and grab a snack. By the time I am back in bed, I am wide awake for about an hour and a half it it so annoying. I obviously can't skip peeing, and if I don't get a snack, I start dry heaving in the morning. :'(
This was far and large the WORST pregnancy related issue I had with both of my boys. It started around week 9 for me and didn't end until week 25 or so. I tried tea, baths, meditation, medication (unisom)...nothing worked. I would sleep 2-3 hours when I first laid down and then would be awake from 12-5am and would drift off right for another hour or two before I had to work/get up with Liam. It was terrible. And every single night. I used to dread going to bed, since it wasn't restful.
I am hoping and praying I don't have the same issue this time. I am still too early to tell. But the midwife said that some women just have it in pregnancy, some worse than others. I apparently fell under the worse category. And it was sad because I never got that second trimester windfall of energy, cause I was never sleeping!
