to those of you who can't sleep

All of you mamas out there like me, who flip back n forth like a steak on a grill while in bed, switching from one side to another

Who get up to pee at least 5 times a night

Who get leg cramps when you stretch

Who have a neck cramo and back aches each morning

Who wake up all kinds of sweaty (even though the air is turned down and the fan is blowing)

I wish you all a good night's sleep tonight! With gumdrop and lollipop dreams lol

All that and heartburn. :/ I had leg cramps and back pain so bad last night I woke up at 330 and soaked in a warm water forever.
Avatar universal
^^^yes on the heartburn! It always hits me in the middle of the night too lol. Oh the joys <3 still can't help but love my little man though

Yep that's my average night too! What I would do for a night's good sleep! I also suffer insomnia most nights after waking to pee, I'm up for atleast 3hrs tossing and turning! I'm almost half way, dread to think how much worse its going to get. Still worth it though :)

I'm 36+3 so I can see the light at the end of the tunnel! Lol

I'm 39 weeks today. I toss and turn, pee every 10 minutes, my carpal tunnel wakes me up, ohh and heartburn. I would do it all over again for my lil princess.

So sweet! I was just saying to my mom that one would think that evolution would have figured out a way for pregnant women to sleep better! Seeing as for the several months following the arrival of our little pumpkins we darn sure aren't getting any sleep!! I always here moms say they didn't sleep for 5 months after their babies were born.. we'll what about the 4 months before they arrived!?!? That's like 9 strait months of a sorry excuse for sleep! And yet we still do it all! We really do kick butt! Super moms For sure!

This is so funny I had to comment. I'm currently tossing at 1:30am with the a/c turned down, a fan blowing on me from 3 feet away, & a ceiling fan above me on high & I still have to be naked because I'm HOT!!!
