I am so flipping tired! I know, I know, I know....I need to get used to it because I probably won't get any sleep until baby is a couple months old at least. So that is about 5 more months, sheesh! I can't wait that long for a good nights sleep!

Last night, I laid down about 8, turned the tv off at 8:30, fell right asleep, then my husband woke me up when he was getting in the bed, I swear it felt like an earthquake. I got up to pee at 9:15, 9:45, 10:30, 11:30, I lay back down at 11:30 and my 3 year old starts crying. I get back up, go in there and she wants covered up... seriously child, pull the darn blanket up over your little body and close your eyes! I go back to sleep and wake up again at 1 ish, and again at 3:30. Then my alarm goes off at 5:30. This is nightly and I'm sure you all can relate, I know I'm not the only pregnant woman on earth that isn't getting any sleep but geez, it sure feels like it when I'm sitting here at work trying to keep my eyes open!

Where does all this pee come from??!!! It's just not right. Pregnancy should be relaxing and should help us sleep good so that we can have all the rest that we can get until baby is here!! LOL

Can you take a benadryl to help you sleep? Can DH take over daughter duties?

I hear ya loud and clear! I feel like I could have written this post. I fall asleep just fine but always wake up by 2 am and some nights I don't even fall back to sleep. I feel like a zombie most days! And I think the same thing "Now is the time i CAN sleep! but I CAN'T!" It's so hard to get comfortable now with the belly getting so big. It's becoming difficult to even change positions from one side to the other and my back is hurting from all the tossing/turning trying to fall back to sleep every night. I am definitely tired!!! Hang in there Cort!

I could probably take some benedryl but that's not something I normally like to do - take something to make me sleep....I feel like having to pee bad enough will wake me up regardless lol Husband gets up with my daughter a lot of the time, last night I just heard her first and went in there. I guess there's not much I can do except suck it up! LOL I was soooooo spoiled with my daughter, she was such an AWESOME sleeper from the beginning, I dont' know what it's like to have a bad sleeper, I'm a little nervous about this new little one and her sleeping habits! LOL

I'm exhausted also. I was up all night peeing when pregnant and now I'm up all night with Christian. Although Christian is much better to wake up to than a full bladder. I am ready though for him to start sleeping longer.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

I hear ya. I think tonight was the first 5 hour stretch of sleep I've had since September! And that only happened because I didn't get a nap today and DH was sweet enough that when I went to bed at like 7 he didn't come in until after midnight. But now I've been up for a couple of hours and made the mistake of eating chips, salsa, and cheese dip (heartburn, acid reflux anyone). I hope you can catch a nap soon.
