Sleep Deprived...... — The Bump
2nd Trimester

Sleep Deprived......

Today has been a very difficult work day as I have no motivation because I am so tired!  I went to bed last night at 10pm and got up to use the restroom, literally, every 1-2 hours.  I no longer turn on the light in the bathroom in hopes that I can fall back asleep faster and I don't allow myself to have any liquid (other than to swallow PNV and brush teeth) after 8pm.  So why am I urinating so much at night?

Re: Sleep Deprived......

  • Yuck, I know how it feels and wish I had some advice or explanation for you. I haven't had more than 3 hours of sleep at a time in a couple of months. Normally I'm up every 1.5-2.5 hrs all night long, it's just part of being pregnant as far as I can tell. It doesn't get any better so we just have to stick it out. I tried the no drinking in the evening thing but then I wake up dying of thirst in the night so I just drink when I want to and suffer the consequences. You get used to the lack of sleep.

    This is pregnancy.  Your bladder is being presurized by your baby.   Not much you can do. 

    It's not even a taste of the sleep deprivation you will endure once the baby comes.  Enjoy all the sleep you're getting now!

    While I agree that sleep deprivation is a lot worse once the baby arrives, i do find this to be an annoying response to not sleeping during pregnancy.  With DS, i slept like a rock (other than having to pee).  With this baby, I have been up all hours and unable to get back to sleep and it is just frustrating!! I KNOW the kind of sleep deprivation I will endure come October, which is why I want my sleep NOW!
