Every Night.

I say I am going to go to bed early so I can wake up early and be productive... but it NEVER happens. It's now 3 a.m. and I am wide awake. I just really wish I could fall asleep. I have nobody to cuddle with. :( DH says he doesn't feel good so he isn't up for cuddling and I already put baby to bed after a long night of fussing so I don't want to wake her back up. Now I will be alone and lonely for the next 3 hours until I can finally sleep. Great! Anyone want to keep me company?

What time do you wake up? I have the same problem, just trying to compare how much sleep we get. :)

 I have but not recently. Maybe I need to take it again. It just seems like when I do take it, it doesn't always work. I was perscribed ambien at one time and it never worked for me. If anything I stayed up more.

 Well right now my schedule is all messed up. Usually I go to bed around 4 and sleep until noon. (That is if my DD will take a short nap with me after she wakes up to eat) I am trying to start going to bed around 12 and getting up at 8. I just think it would make me feel tons better and I could actually have time to get things accomplised. Waking up at noon is killing me, I can't get anything done.

I hear ya. I have that same problem. Some days I lucky to sleep till noon (obviously after I feed kids and set them up to be occupied and get the baby back to sleep.) Tonight I don't really care though because I had such a crappy day I have no plans for tomorrow. We'll have waffles for breakfast and watch a movie while mom sleeps on the couch. I'm thinking Cinderella.

 Sounds like you have your day set! :) Luckily my DD is only 2 months old, so I don't have to worry about "occupying" her. As long as I can get her to take a nap with me or be content in her play yard, I am set! We are currently living with my MIL and FIL, so I am very thankful that they help me out while DH is at work if I need rest.
