I sleep 8 hours a night and get up once (though sometimes twice) a night to go to the bathroom. I will sometimes nap but not too frequently.

I sleep 8-10 hours of sleep a night, getting up 2-3x a night to pee. Then I usually need a nap for an hour during the day.

Lately...anywhere from 3-5 hours and I'm up 3-5x peeing. On days off work I take a 2 hour nap-sometimes longer if I'm comfortable.

I get about 7-8 hours, sometimes a bit more, but it's interrupted a lot. I get up 2-3 times most nights to pee, but I wake up even more than that and sometimes I lay there awake a while. I have to switch sides a few times a night as well.

I get about 6-7 but it's interrupted by my two (current) youngest, my two (soon-to-be) youngest, bathroom trips, and switching sides every 30 minutes or so (as I explain to dh and the kids, I have to squish them evenly). In fact, I'm up right now (5:36 am) and have been since about 4:30 as a result of dd3 waking up, then my taking care of her and laying back down, only to get kicked relentlessly by both babies. I finally surrendered and got up for good. I'll probably take several naps today; I've been so tired lately.

I'm usually in bed from 9:30 - 5:30, so 8 hours. Most nights I only wake up once to pee. I still feel like a sack of potatoes in the morning though...lol

On a good night I'll get 7 hours and only get up once to pee. On a bad night I'll get 7, but I'll wake up 3+ times to pee and the carpal tunnel numbness will wake me up a few times. That's a really hard one to fall back asleep after. Drinking extra water helps reduce the swelling, but it also adds to the bathroom trips.

i'm not sure, exactly.

part of the problem is darwin being super active and the painful contractions i just can't make go away.


but the other part--- harvey's been getting a lot of teeth lately. he went from 6 teeth to 12 in the past few weeks!! so he's been waking up at night more than usual.


...and, he's also 18 months, so he's right at the super-clingy phase. he wakes up yelling and screaming for MAAAMAAA!!! and my poor husband can do nothing to console him. so he ends up in our bed for several stretches of the night. and god forbid he's in our bed and i need to switch the side i'm laying on (SCREAMM!!) or, oh, if i need to get up to pee! (SCCCCCCREAM!!!!!)

because, you know, if i'm not constantly hugging him, i might as well have abandoned him. it's been a struggle, and i end up awake most of the night, just waiting for him to be out enough that i can move him back into his crib.


i'd love to take naps, but harvey rarely does, now, so that means i don't get to either! and it always works out that IF he falls asleep during the day, it's during a bad bout of contractions. pfft. that's my luck!!

Ugh, you poor thing. 18months was such a tough stage for my DD too. She became so demanding, didn't like sleeping, everything woke her up, and she was so clingy. I can't imagine being pregnant on top of it *hugs*

it's hard to be mad at him when he calms down the **instant** he can cuddle up to me. he's also learned to give kisses, so i'm chronically sleepy, but also chronically showered with harvey-affection.

i just worry that he'll be a complete mess when darwin arrives, kwim?

I'm in bed by 10pm and waking up around 8am most days, so I get about 10 hrs "technically". But I wake up to pee at least 6 times a night, and I toss and turn A LOT. I'm in a lot of pain these days, and I've been sick all this week.

I will quite happily sit here and feel sorry for myself with my stupid BS 10hr sleep cycles.

8-9 of interrupted sleep. Up 3-6 times to pee and have a hard time falling back to sleep. I am not generally a napper but the last two days at like 5pm I have taken one. I remember that in the 9th month with the others, age must be catching up with me b/c I am only 32wks!

Not enough.

Seriously doesn't matter if I get 3hrs or 8hrs I don't feel rested the next day. I'm up 2-3x to go to the bathroom. My 3yo comes in at some point during the night and gets in our bed.

I've been sleeping about 8 hours a night, but probably only 7 hours of "quality" sleep. I usually get up once or twice to pee, and then I toss and turn quite a bit. Sometimes I wake up due to heartburn and find it hard to get comfortable again.
I don't get to nap much because my toddler doesn't nap much anymore, but I at least get to veg in a chair while she plays.
