2nd Trimester

Can't sleep!

I am so annoyed right now. DH and I went up to bed around 2:00 and I just kept tossing and turning, so I eventually just came back downstairs. Now I'm gonna end up taking tons of naps today and not be able to sleep again tonight. Also, I swear I have sneezed like 100 times since 2:00. I hope I'm not getting sick. Is anyone else having a lot of trouble sleeping at night? I just can't seem to get comfortable. Honestly, I would rather sleep on the couch anymore, it just seems like I can get more comfortable than in bed.

  • I can't sleep at night...I toss and turn the whole time

  • It's terrible! I just want to scream! Oh, and then my husbands snoring sounds like a freaking freight train too, so that doesn't help any.
  • Me too!  Have a lot of driving tomorrow/today!  ugh!
  • Ugh, that sucks. That furthest we have to go is like 2 miles to my parents house. I am sure I will be taking a nap on the couch after we eat! :)
  • i feel your pain. i cant ever sleep my doctor told me its because of stress and my brain does not know how to stop working. what i do and it might work for put a pillow between your legs and count backwards starts with 100 and try not to think about anything except sleeping. good luck to you. and sweet dreams.
  • I will try that. It seems when I think too much about going to sleep I have even more trouble falling asleep. It was nice in the summer because I would turn the fan on and the sound of the fan would help me fall asleep. It would also drown out my husbands snoring. lol
  • I toss and turn all night as well - I just can't ever get comfortable!

    I've had a cold all week and I thought it was getting better. I feel so sick right now and I've been up for the past hour coughing and sneezing. I hate it!
  • I'm glad I'm not the only one awake already!
  • It's 3:30 here in CA and I'm WIDE awake! I hate it...every night for at least an hour or two I'm awake. I get so exhausted during the day because of it...My OB said to take Tylonol PM or Benadril if it gets too bad (not on a daily basis but once in a while). I'd take it tonight if we had some!! What us ladies have to go though right!? 
  • It's nice to know I am not alone!  Every night for the past 3 nights I seem to wake up at 2:30am and can not fall back asleep until 5:30am.

    Frustrating!!!

    You might want to talk to your doctor about this again.  This was actually one of my big clues that I needed to be on an anti-depressant.   I would be so tired but I couldn't sleep because my brain would race, or I would fall asleep but wake up after a couple of hours, again with the brain racing.  My doctor put me on Wellbutrin and suddenly, I could sleep a full night again and it was glorious!  I've gone off of it twice- once the summer we first started TTC and the sleeping issues came back.  I went back on, but they switched me to Prozac because they said it was better for pregnancy.  I didn't like Prozac as much so I gradually stopped taking it and luckily, I'm still sleeping fine.  Not sleeping sucks, though!

    My dr told me not to take that stuff.  She said to make sure I work out everyday (I guess to tire myself out), warm milk, shower before bed....

    I miss Tylenol PM!

  • I'm awake by 5AM at the latest every day and it's a struggle to stay in bed till then. DH's snoring doesn't help either.... I look at it as my body's way of preparing me for life once LO is here.
