How many of you ladies are needing to nap on a daily basis, and when does the urge normally hit you?

I find that about an hour after waking is when I'm sleepiest. It's strange, but I'm glad I'm not working anymore. If I'm home and don't have anything going on, I take my nap around 10am most days (I try to hold out until at least then so that I'm not taking a "nap" at 8:30 lol)

I wish I could nap. Sometimes I just can't get comfy for a nap, and sometimes there just isn't time for a nap. I am still working and it is true that I am sleepiest not tooooo long after waking up.. but i do get sleepy as the day goes on too. I can't wait until I am out of work. My last day should be Aug 7. My baby shower is Aug 9. and my due date is Sept 9. :-)

I napped today because I was wiped out. But since I am bedrest I am finding it hard to sleep at ALL by now. And it doesn't help Adrianna never stops moving so its impossible to fall and stay asleep. I swear this child is going to be ADHD.

If left on my own, I could probably easily sleep allllll day. I am exhausted. But I have the hardest time in the mornings.

My dream nap schedule is something like this:

Wake up at 6, nap at 7, wake up at 9, nap at 11, wake up at 1....you get the drift.

Ultimately, I try to sneak in a nap a day lately though I really could take several. The urge hits as often as my dream schedule above; unfortunately, I'm not able to give in to it as often as I'd like.

I love naps! Depends on the day, either a morning nap or an early afternoon is perfect for me.

I usually get super tired sometime around 11. Then again around 2-3. I usually lie on the couch at least once a day and can get about 30 minutes in.

Don't throw anything at me, but I'm not feeling the urge to nap these days. I am just amazed at how great I'm feeling this pregnancy. I know it's because I'm having to eat so well, but it's weird to feel so good.

I want to go back to bed as soon as I wake up in the morning. It's brutal.

If I am at home, 2-3:00 is when my body shuts down and really wants to nap. I seem to be able to better control that when I am at work (thank goodness!!)

i'm typically not a nap person, but harvey's been keeping me up at night, so i've been super tired during the day and really dying for extra sleep. it just rarely pans out for me. like... it's almost 2:30 right now, and he hasn't gone down for a nap yet today. i bet he won't. i'm losing hope. lol.

Usually around 2-3 then I get tired again around 6-8. This is storm season though, so my thunder-phobic dog hasn't been letting me sleep much at night. :/

Thanks to Bokkechick for the lovely siggie.
