I can't sleep worth a hoot these days.

Last night, I fell asleep a little after 11... and I began tossing and turning around 545... It's annoying because I know it's going to be hard for me to nap once it's all bright in the house!!

I know I need a new mattress because this one is just too firm, and it's hard for me to sleep on my left side the majority of the time, tho I'm trying! I feel like it goes numb after a while, and then it hurts when I turn over

Ugh.. I just want some good sleep.

I have been having trouble sleeping the last few nights as well, I cant seem to get comfy, and then once I do it is only for a little while then I am up and down all night. I thought at first it was cause I was still having my nap during the day so I tryed to cut the nap out but that just made it worse caues then come the next morning with no sleep I was super cranky.

Hopefully we can get some sleep soon.

Thank you to Mistyx6 for my siggy!

I have issues too!! And we have a pillow top mattress! My only solution when I was pregnant with Zoie was to get a temporary camping or air mattress. It was like sleep heaven after that!

What about sleeping on your back? That's how I end up most nights.

Ugh.... you have my sympathies as well. I'm working a lot (6 days a week) and know that doesn't help. Usually by 8pm I am dozing off on the couch. Fall asleep for about an hour or so, then we'll head up to bed around 10-11pm. There have been some nights that I'm not falling asleep until 2-3am and up for the day at 5am. Tossing and turning every night. We also have a firm mattress and bought a fluffy mattress pad that makes it more comfortable, but not helping with me sleeping the night. I also can't sleep on my back. My lower back feels like it's locking up if I do.

Hopefully, we all start getting some sleep soon, since this summer we'll have a good reason to be up all night!

I cant sleep a full night either. Either Im thirsty, have to pee, cant sleep, or just tossing and turning and yet Ive got a 6-8month old pillow top mattress. And I cant sleep/lay on my back, well I can but for very short periods of time before my back starts hurting, so good thing Im a side sleeper

THANK YOU marriedc for the AMAZING siggy

What about getting a pillow top? We have a tempur-pedic bed but I know they sell tempur pillow tops.

I guess you're not alone! I can't sleep either...I just figure it's just getting me ready for the sleepless nights to come (although it sure would be nice to sleep well this last 4 1/2 months--but I guess that's not happening!)

Yeah, I know... I really need to get a pillow top... I had one, and then I moved and it got lost along the way... LONG STORY....

Actually, I think it's at my grandparents... I'll have to see about it
