becoming a trend :(

I really hope this is not becoming a trend, because I really need my sleep! But it is now 5am and I have been awake since 3:20. I woke up with a bad contraction, which always happens several times a night because I have to pee bad. So I go pee lay back down, and then I lay there for like an hour having contraction, after contraction, not able to go back to sleep. So I had to get up and have had a snack, and have only had a few more contractions since then...so I think I am about to try to go back to bed...hoping I'll be able to go back to sleep quickly.

Anyone else having sleep issues? My OB said I could take Unisom, has anyone taken that? I feel like I am already taking so many medications, I don't really like the idea of taking any others, but if this keeps happening, I may have to try it!

Whats Sleep??? I toss and turn all night, I just can't get comfortable. And than when I fianlly do fall asleep I only sleep with a short pd. Hang in there Mama, it'll be over soon, and than you'll be sleep deprived for a different reason!

papaya enzyme from the health food store for heartburn. I haven't taken anything other than that this whole pregnancy and I get major heartburn half the day.

My sleep sucks. I'm exhausted all day and when I finally get in bed, anywhere between 9 and 11:30, I just lay here, unable to sleep. up to 2 hours usually.
I finally bought melatonin on wednesday but i haven't taken it yet. I'm just EXHAUSTED.

horrible sleep here, too! I get up at least twice to pee, blow my nose (nasty cold right now) and turn numerous times in bed as well as I get so hot and need to strip.

Then, while I am awake I can hear DH snore and that makes things even more difficult to fall back asleep. I maybe got 4 hours last night!!!!! :eek:

Sleep deprived here as well! i got to bed at 9pm every night. i am able to get comfy thankfully, but i am up every 45 minutes to pee, then it takes me forever to fall back asleep after that. so in the end i maybe sleep for 2 hours a night. Dr wont let me take anything, though only once i did take Tylenol PM out of desperation, but it didnt help any. walk around work like a zombie most days Sad

Between contractions, heartburn and potty breaks I feel like I'm up most of the night. In the hospital they gave me a sleeping pill the first night and I was groggy the whole next day so taking any kind of sleeping aid scares me because I'm home alone with the kids all day.

Sorry you aren't sleeping well. I was like that the last several weeks and the last wk before I had him was horrible. But, only because of contractions. And now, I'm sleep deprived for a totally different reason. LOL! I have taken Unisom before. It worked for me and didn't leave me groggy in the morning like most of those medications do. Hope you find something that works.

Some nights are better than others. I have lower back/hip pain that bothers me and now nausea. I hope you can find relief!

Normally I am up every hour/2 hours to get up and pee and turn over cuz my hips start hurting, but I can usually fall back asleep right away. This not being able to go back to sleep is driving me nuts. I hate being awake at night when everyone else is sleeping!

I have had pg insomnia most of this pg unfortunately. This week it started getting pretty bad because of all the peeing but I'm also sick which has been brutal. My doctors haven't ok'd anything for sleep at night so I've just had to tough it out.

Where would you find that?

and Happy Birthday to your little guy!

Last night was the worst night by far, ugh! I had to run some errands yesterday and by the end I was having some pretty severe pelvic pain and it just kept going last night and then around 2 I woke up to a contraction...and kept having some pretty painful contractions every 8 minutes...which means I couldn't fall back to sleep. I thought I was in labor for sure....but I did end up falling back to sleep at some point after 4am...I sure hope that does't continue!
