I'm finding I'm so sick & tired after 7:30, that I'm heading to bed & usually asleep by 8:30pm. Anybody else??

Oh yeah. I'm in bed before the kids every night. I like to go to bed early anyway when I'm not pregannt, but not this early. There are some nights where I'm in bed before 7 (and some where I sack out on the couch right after work for a few hours). And, no matter how early or late I go to bed (we do stay up every now and again), I'm up early. Twice this week I was up at 2am, and yesterday I couldn't fall back asleep. Oddly enough I made it to 8pm and wasn't exhausted like I usually am. I did sleep this morning until 5 though.

If I didn't work from home, I'd never survive this. Or, I'd just look like hell doing it. LOL.

Well it's almost 7pm over here & I'm in bed right now!! Thankfully my sweet hubster supervises bed time for our 9yr old etc.
So when are you due, and how many are you having?? X

Due 8/5/12, and with just one, PTL. :) Our kids are older (19, 15, 11), so they're pretty self-sufficient at this point. Libby handles anything that comes up when I'm in bed.

Hubby often goes to bed early with me, when he's actually here when I go to bed. He works anywhere from 12 to 18 hour days, so he's pretty wiped out, too. And, he's on his feet most of the day, so he's probably more tired than me, TBH.

Is that the 5th August?? You know we write the date the other way round ;0)
My poor hubby feels like a widow in the evenings I think. We haven't watched anything on tv together since Christmas time!! I go to bed when our son goes to bed, so all in all it's very quiet after 8. Can I ask how old you are??

LOL -- yeah, you people overseas are odd. ;)

I'm 41. Will be 42 when the baby is born unless s/he comes before my birthday (July 18) but we don't want that. That's a bit too early for my taste. But the week after my birthday would be just fine. :)

I like to think we're 'right' rather than odd - heheheeeee!!! ;0)
My birthday is 23rd August & I'll be 41. Kind of hoping the baby is late as thd school's intake is Sept-Aug so would prefer an older child rather than a youngy. But I'm just being a bit silly with that.

I'm exhausted all day, bed as soon as I can get into it.

You know, I usually can get a solid 5 hours in before I start that light sleeping crap and toss and turn for however long until I'm up. But I think last night I got 8-9 hours solid. I don't remember getting up at all. I think this is only maybe the 3rd time I've gotten a full nights sleep since I found out I was pregnant.

You at least have an excuse, Wendy. You've got 3 babies in there and you're further along to boot. :)

I hope the body pillow works!
