Waking up EVERY night

This baby is waking me up EVERY night from 11 30 (yes I go to bed at like 9 30) to like 12 30 or 1ish. It's like I'm in a panic attack and can't fall back to sleep or like I have sleep apnea and can't breathe. When I start to fall asleep I like stop breathing and gasp for air. Some nights I attribute it to being hot and then I"ll turn on the AC, but last night was very cool and I knew I didn't need the AC on. I never had this happen with the boys and I know they say that they're prepping you because those will be their awake hours when they're born but she doesn't need to prep me she needs to prep DH because that's HIS shift!

AND I put on a pair of flat slip ons this morning and they don't fit - not like my feet are swollen (they're really not) but my feet like grew 2 sizes and I guess since I wear flip flops/sandals most of the time I hadn't noticed ...

Anyone else any gripes today?

I woke up incredibly dizzy this morning and am also up most of the night with pee trips and pain. I'm in so much pain with my pubic bone I seriously feel like I'm going to die. I can't wait for this to be over. I'm really starting to complain the last couple days.

I go to bed at like 9:30/10 too! lol

I have the worst indigestion I have ever had in my entire life!!!! Everything I eat basically comes back up! It's soooo gross!! Also I wake up around 130 every morning having to go to the bathroom, then the heartburn/indigestion starts! Then my little girl starts having a dance party and it takes me 2hrs to fall sleep!!

Oooooooooo sleep vents.

My 3.5 year old wouldn't go to sleep until after 11 last night. And I had to lay in her too soft bed which screws up my back/sciatica while I tried to get her to give up fighting sleep. Then I finally got to bed, and 30 minutes later I FINALLY started to drift to sleep when my 18 month old woke up. :rolleyes: Luckily it only took a few minutes to get her to sleep. Then my 3 year old came into bed with me at 4 and she's a bed hog and pokes her knees/elbows/head into me.

Not to mention the 3 times I got up to pee. All kinds of fun. I'm so dead today I just want to sit here and not do anything.

I get up every couple hours to pee and I guess it wakes LO up too cause he starts kicking me and then it's really hard to get back to sleep. He was playing so hard in there this morning I just gave in and got up for the day. He squirms for about 30min at a time, not just a little kick like DS. ughhh!

I don't sleep anymore. I toss & turn because of my hip pain... that's if I can fall back to sleep.

Lately, DD (because of teething, I think) has been refusing to go to sleep at 9 PM. She isn't allowed to play. She has to sit on the couch with mommy or daddy. But, she will sit there until 10 or 11... which means I don't get anything done before bed.

Two Complaints So Far

This baby is doing a one man wave in my stomach on an hourly basis. He doesn't just kick a little. He moves from one side of my abdomen to the other. I don't know if he's trying to turn or what, but it's getting sore in there!

My second complaint is the heat. The AC went out again yesterday from 1:30 to 4. However, it upped the anty even more because the electric company shut off our power for about an hour in the middle of the afternoon. I couldn't even run fans. And, it was a 101 degrees outside. Did I mention that my son does not like to be hot? If I stand too close to the stove when cooking, he starts his little wave. You can only imagine what he was doing yesterday when I had no fans.

I might get yelled at for posting this but . . .

I have been able to sleep really well through this whole pregnancy. Now, I get about 4 hours of sleep and wake up to go to the bathroom. It seems to get the baby (and me too) all worked up. She kicks and my mind races and it takes a while to go back to sleep.

I know I shouldn't get to gripe since I've been so lucky, but I'm worried about her deciding to do this right when I need to go back to school.

My only issue with sleep now is never being able to get enough! My kids each get up once or twice a night and I have to get up to go to the bathroom every couple of hours, but I've actually been sleeping really well other than that! With my first 2 I had insomnia the entire time I was preggo, so this is really nice!
