I just want to sleep! I don't even mean to sleep through the night..I'm ok with sleeping 3-4hrs, getting up to pee and then sleeping again for 2-3hrs...but omg to sleep for an hour and then not be able to fall back to sleep for hours sucks! I know that we don't get much sleep when the babies arrive ....ugh.

I feel your pain. When I lay down at night I have BH ctx and can't sleep and then it is morning and I have the kids all day. I just want to have 3 hrs.

I'm with you. My new thing is to wake up at 4am and stay awake until 6am. I just lay there, needlessly worrying about things that I can't control. Keep in mind I always wake up every 2-3 hours anyway.

I'm right there with you as well. Can't remember the last time I slept more than about 5 hours total a night.

And when I'm there lying in bed, I keep thinking I should just get up and do some work or chores but then tell myself that I really need to sleep so I won't be so tired the next day and keep going back and forth in my head and then realize I've been awake for over an hour! Argh!

I'm right there with you ladies. Also, this sleep deprived, hormonal preggo lady might strangle the next person that suggests that it's just preparing me for the no sleep when LO arrives.
