QOTD 3/7

What time do you usually go to bed and wake up?

I have been going to bed way too late lately. I would love to be sleeping by 10:00 or 10:30 so that I could get a better sleep, but I'm often up until 11:30 pm lately. 11:00 if I'm lucky. My problem is "me time" - I like to have time after the kids are in bed for watching movies, reading books, etc. So I often stay up too late.

In the morning my DS1 has to be on the bus by 7:23 am, so I am usually up around 7 am, then rushing around to wake him up, feed him, get him dressed and out the door. Often DS2 is awake before then (today was 6:20 am) but I try to make him snuggle with me in bed until I have to get up for real.

I guess 11:00 pm to 7:00 am is plenty of sleep, but it doesn't feel like it! I have always been pretty particular about my sleep. If I don't get enough then I am super cranky.

Bedtime is well after 2 am most nights, and wake up time is 730. I have pretty bad insomnia, and am usually up way later than 2. I stay up to make sure DH gets to work without issue, by that point I get past the point of no return...

Right now I'm going to be at 9 with Jon and I usually don't fall asleep until midnight. I wake up around nine but the nausea doesn't usually subside enough for me to get out of bed until around noon. Very frustrating! And I still take a nap every day. I can't wait to not be pregnant and get back to a normal routine. This stinks!

We're usually in bed by 10:00, although I will occasionally read/watch TV until 10:30-11:00. I get up at 6:00 if I'm working out in the morning (which I've started to do a lot lately so I have nap time to do other things) or by 7:00 if I'm not.

Ashley you're my hero waking up to workout. I have to get to bed earlier so that I can even have happy thoughts of going back to the gym!

Right now I wake up around 6:30-7 (usually a bit before DD comes running into our room). Then she snuggles with me for 45-60 minutes until DH takes her downstairs and I go back to sleep til ~9.

I go to sleep anywhere between 9:30 (that's the best, but I have to force myself since I also really like the me time!) and 11:00. But I seem to need tons of sleep to make it through the day.

Depends on the show that night. Wink

Usually in bed by 9:30 and asleep by 10:30......

nowadays, I wake up about every two hours or so throughout the night and then up for good at 6:30 am.

Dd is asleep @8:30 on a god night and up at 6:30 or 7. If I am tired I will be asleep before her or shortly after, if not we r up till 10 or so reading/ watching Big Bang theory. I'm up 3 times a night to pee, plus if dd is up I'm up to change her.
