I have a similar issue . I went to bed  little later then you, around 3 am, but I still woke up at 8 :45 this morning. But i don't feel drained or exhausted. Thats been happening for about the last week for me. By the way, I just wanted to say that I love your profile pic <3 <3 Is this baby #1 for you?

I take unisom and im out all night I mean I get up and use the potty but if I didnt take the unisom I would be up after using the potty but now I go and fall back asleep again its a life saver

I tried the unisom once n didn't work...I took one pill. Are you using 1 or 2?

I average about 5-6 hours of sleep a night on weekdays between waking up to pee and because I'm uncomfortable. I was gonna try the unisom but my Dr advised against it because of all my medication allergies.

I take half of a pill and im out...ya for some people it works and for some it doesn't idk why that is maybe just body chemicals there is also one u can buy at whole foods too that might work and its organic

I'm usually really sensative to meds...so it not working was a shocker. Will look into the one at whole foods.

LOL I think that he isn't totally realistic on the work it takes to being pregnant and giving birth....although considering my age....better not wait too long if we are going for a second.

i havent had problems sleeping yet lol no matter what time i go to sleep (usually 10 or 11) i sleep through the night only waking up for pee breaks, or water. Then every morning between 6:30-7:30 my cat wakes me up cuz she wants her breakfast (wet food) which is fine during the week cuz i dont need an alarm clock for work lol....but it ***** on the weekends

That's why I pit my cat on an automatic feeder and his wet food is in the evening.
