the usual here...up every 2-3 hours on most nights. he has had a few nights in the past few weeks tho where he has slept 4 hours stretches the first stretch of the night...he's getting attached to the thomas pillow pet so this might end up being his lovie...FINALLY! something he might love other than my boobs...last night when he wanted to go to sleep he said "BOO, TOM" (boob and thomas)...it was super cute.
he had a few days where he was waking up at 6.30 am, but it was short lived and we're back to 5am up for the day wakings.
M wakes at least a couple times a night, but usually just says "daddy, daddy" in a cranky little voice and DH goes and gets her down again pretty quickly. Sometimes she wants him to stay but sometimes he easily sneaks away. I think on average he sleeps in our bed for over half the sleeping time. On a good night she gives us a long stretch of 4-5 hours, has 2-3 brief wakings and goes down again right away. On a bad night she has one or two episodes of waking up crying/yelling and takes awhile to get back down, needs DH to cosleep with her, and is restless when she does sleep.
I conk out easily with my hypnobabies intro tracks but am starting to do my late pregnancy stuff of waking to pee, waking up super hungry or thirsty or with heartburn, etc. I am never a midnight snack person except in the last half of pregnancy!! So I am not STTN either
What is this sleep you speak of lol
I'm kidding thank God the twins love to sleep or I would be crazy by now. I try to keep them awake as much as possible during the day and they nap in the afternoon. But most days they sleep a good stretch for me like 11-5.
She's been STTN from about 8-5:30. She is getting up for the day at 5:30 though. Like last night she slept from 9-5:30. I know that's not enough for her. I have got to get her weaned from this 5am feeding. I went to bed when she did and I am wiped out.

Sleep for mommy not good, I never sleep anymore.
Gary- Goes down usually by 8 sometimes 8:30 and sleeps til 6:15 (when i get up on weekdays) and on weekends he usually sleeps til anywhere from 7-9 He's been a great sleeper. i dont remember the last time he woke up at night. Kinda scared what will happen with the next child lol
I do not want to jinx it, BUT I have had 3 wonderful nights of sleep. The first night, Drake didn't wake at all, the second he woke just a little earlier then normal but went right back to sleep and last night he woke once! I have no idea if its because hes sick or if something "clicked" and he will be a better sleeper now. I still have not slept that "great", much better then the past, but I keep waking thinking he will too. But I am happy to say I have not been zombie like in these last three days!
Juliana goes down around 10 or 10:30 and sometimes STTN. Other times, like today, she wakes up around 5 and asks for milk, I tell her to go back to sleep, and she fondles my boob until she goes to sleep. Then she woke up again at 6:30 and I actually nurses her, then when back to sleep again. Usually she sleeps until 7 or 7:30.
Me - bouts of insomnia when everyone finally goes to sleep
Most of the time when Drake is asleep I will lay there for a good hour not being able to sleep. And then I say "I'm just gonna get up!" Then I don't. Then he wakes up and I am exhausted. He goes back to bed, and I am wide awake. UGH!
Thank you *Kiliki* for my perfect siggy
