I wake up numerous times a night and I can usually get back to sleep.. but not always! I was up for an hour or two a couple of nights ago at 3am :/

I'm woken up most nights once, but that is for dd, of course, then I'm up for hours. I can't seem to fall asleep on time, so I'm relying on her morning nap most days to get enough sleep myself.

Well Im at work and semi-functional lol. I just need sweet Zayla to make her appearance now! This sleep pattern is not very becoming I usually can fall back to sleep as well, but over the last wk or two I just busy myself with eating in the middle of the night since I have nothing else to do. Last night it was oatmeal cookies
Yep, I think it is our bodies' way of preparing us for being up all times of the night with an infant. Dont our bodies know that it would be better if we were well rested for labor and before we get sleep deprived with a new baby???

I think my body has actually adjusted to constantly waking up at night and I don't have a problem with it anymore lol. Both of my kids have been bad sleepers since birth and I honestly haven't slept though the night in years. So getting up every 45 minutes- an hour doesn't really bother me. It's almost like I've learned to stay semi sleeping while walking around taking care of kids and peeing haha. I definitely had this issue with my first two though. I was a complete insomniac then, this time all I want to do is sleep!
