How much sleep do you get a night?

My sleep cycle is out of control. Some nights I get about 8 hours of sleep, others, about 2 hours!

  • I usually have the "potential" for about 7 hours...meaning I have about 7 hours between the time I lie down and the time I have to be up. However, I have a really hard time falling asleep, and since I'm in my 3rd trimester, I wake up every hour or so to go to the bathroom and/or try to get comfortable again. The sleep I get is really interrupted, I guess.

    Usually it will take me a while to fall back to sleep if I wake up at night, but I think I'm so exhausted lately that I have an easier time. My LP told me the other night that he swore he heard me snore on my way to the bathroom and that I was sawing logs by the time I heaved myself back into bed. LOL!

  • For the most part I get a complete night sleep. When I am going through something like cramps I am up all night.
