Does anyone ever get this?

I absolutely cannot sleep, even though I've had, what, one hour or so a night for the last I don't know how long, I've got no excuse to not be sleeping since the kids are away, my husband's with Bella (adopted niece) at the NICU and I've got a nice warm comfy bed, yet I've been trying for ages and I just can't stop feeling crappy. I always get this when pregnant as well, but generally not to this extent, as in I've been awake for about 48 hours in a row. And I feel as if I'm running so much on autopilot that I'll never sleep. do you get this?

  • Oh definitely, where you're too exhausted to sleep? Auughhh, that sucks. It's happened to me quite a few times. Can you take a benadryl or unisom? I'm sorry you can't get to sleep :(
