    Default Anyone else's DH not able to get up in the AM?

    I got up at 5:00 AM. I wanted to catch our 6:53 train for work (we work in buildings beside each other on the same hours some weeks so take the same train together) but at this rate we will be lucky to catch the 7:13 train! Now I won't get in before 8:00 AM like I wanted to!

    It's 6:35 AM and he's still not out of bed. He has reset the alarm over and over since I woke up! The dog won't come out of bed either until he does, so I can't walk the dog either! Grrrrr!!!

    And the days I work later and don't have to get up right away, the alarm will sometimes continue to go off for two hours (with hitting snooze). So frustrating when I just want to sleep!

    Anyone else have a DH like this? We tried multiple alarm clocks, styles, settings, but nothing works. He just gets up, hits snooze or turns it off sometimes (which makes him late for work often) and goes back to sleep over and over. I thought about getting one of those alarm clocks on wheels that runs around the room and he has to catch, but it would just make me insane because he would probably find it, turn it off, and go back to bed.

    I used to stress and force him up so he wouldn't be late but I stopped doing that because he needs to be responsible for his own mistakes. I just hate that it affects me (I'm the person who wakes up the second the first alarm goes off and hops out of bed. Alarm sounds/clocks give me anxiety!)

    Yup, I have to call my hubby constantly between 7 and 7:30am to get him out of bed by then. Some days I need to get to work a bit earlier and he always forgets which means it is a rush because he doesn't drive so I have to drop DS at daycare then hubby at work before I get to work myself. I also have to get DS, myself and hubby ready for the day.

    I don't have this problem. If anything, DBF has to wake ME! lol.

    In all fairness though, I don't take too long to get out of bed and I think if DBF was like your DH it would drive me crazy. My DBF starts work at 8am (me 9am) and he's always up before his alarm at 6.30ish.

    Oh yes, my DH has a lot of trouble getting out of bed. Even when he's awake and just "resting his eyes" he just can't seem to bring himself to get up!

    I just make as much noise as I can and sometimes I'll pull the covers from him and "make" the bed over him - which makes him cold. Other times I'll get the baby or the dog and just let them torture DH.

    The worst part is that he's better than he used to be!!!

    GL - it's a constant battle for us. You may need to resort to just going to work on your own and letting DH to his own devices. Maybe when he gets in trouble for being late he'll realize he needs to get up!!

    Glad to hear I'm not the only one! We only have one car so if I leave without DH, then he would have to take the bus (which is very inconvenient in our city).

    The funny thing is that he's actually awake. I've had whole conversations with him, but he just doesn't get out of bed. This morning he went and put my clothes in the dryer (I was tired and forgot last night and had nothing to wear) while I was in the shower, then went back to bed!

    Yup - my DH does the same thing. He's totally awake but just procrastinates on the whole getting up part of it. Silly men.

    OMG, mine does the same thing except on Tuesdays and Fridays when he has to be at work by 5. But on the weekend, he is up staring at me by 7. WTH

    Every monring I wake up DH at 7:45 am so he can get DS up and dressed. He gets him ready while I make lunches or pick out his clothes or finish getting myself ready. Its a daily battle to wake him up. I usually have to start early and pester him until he gets up. Drives me nuts!

    I think the thing that annoys me the most about it is when we make plans on our day off to do something early but he takes hours and hours to get ready! In the summer I like to get up early on Saturday mornings and go to the farmers market. Yes, I could go alone but I really would like his input and company because it's fun! If I wait for him, I'm lucky if we get there before noon and then all the good fruit/veggies are sold by then!

    Do any of your dh's snore a lot or wake frequently during the night? I'm asking because after years of dealing with that type of behavior, my dh went through a sleep study and was diagnosed with sleep apnea. After getting treatment (he has to wear a mask at night) his sleep is MUCH more restful and he is a lot easier to get up in the morning.

    I know that likely won't help most of you but maybe one of you can find that having him ask his doc about it can give you BOTH some peace!
