trouble sleeping?

Is anyone having trouble sleeping?

I am always so tired during the day and could nap all the time, if I didn't have a 2 year old running around, but when it comes to sleeping at night, forget it! I'm tired when I go to bed, but then I toss and turn and can't get to sleep and then when I finally do get to sleep, the littlest thing will wake me up :( Last night was actually a good night, only took me an hour to get to sleep and I only woke up once. I still didn't want to get up this morning though lol

I don't remember this happening during any of my other pregnancies until the last couple of months. I certainly hope I don't have 9 months of sleepless nights to look forward too :(

I'm struggling with sleep, too. I was exhausted yesterday afternoon and evening, but then when I went to bed, I found myself wide awake. I finally drifted off around 3am. Luckily my son is at daycare today and I have the week off from working, so I'm going to see if I can take a small nap.

I'm hoping it's just the change in hormones. 8 more months of this with a full-time job and a 2 year old would be a nightmare.

I've been having a hard time falling asleep. I seem to lay in bed for quite a while before finally falling asleep. I also tend to wake up early in the morning so I can go to the bathroom and then it takes me a little bit to fall asleep again.

You just described me!! Esp last night. Yesterday I was so exhausted all day that if I even sat on the couch I was falling asleep. Well then I was bugged eyed till midnight, once I finally got sleepy I laid down and then tossed and turned for hours. Miserable!!

I haven't been able to sleep until after 2 or 3 in the morning then wake up at 7 to go to the bathroom and lucky if I can go back to sleep!

Me too...ugh. It has gotten a little better in the last week or so, but I have so much trouble falling asleep. When I finally do, I am up every hour to pee and then it takes me forever to go back to sleep. I can't sleep past 5 AM anymore either. UGH!!! I hope this passes for us all soon!!
