How much sleep do you get each night?

Typically, my husband and I turn off the TV in the living room between 9:30-10pm and head to our bedroom where we snuggle up and watch TV until about 11-11:30pm. We wake at 6:30am to get ready for work and when school's in session the girls get up to get ready for that.

Last night, however, we headed back early, around 9, and I woke around midnight with stomach troubles, then again around 3am, so when the alarm sounded at 6:30am, I just was NOT ready, lol.

How about you? How much sleep do you usually get? How about last night?

Well I work nights so a little less than 4. I try and nap in the morning when I can.

I try to get 8.  Its usually about 7.  Sometimes I nap to catch up, and I sleep longer on weekends.  I need to change my avatar because I'm really not that sleep deprived any more.  Made that when I was still in the "waking up several times a night" baby stage.

I normally sleep 4-6hours a night.
I went to bed at 1am last and was at 5:30 to get the kids on the bus.

Ugh, yeah, I remember working nights and it was a screwy sleep schedule. How long have you been working nights?

Really? I have to have at least 7 or I can't function. Have you always needed so little sleep?

I used to take naps periodically to catch up if I'd missed out on sleep when the girls were little, but I can't even remember the last time I napped now, lol. I read an article recently, though, that said naps were bad for you, so it may be a good thing. How old is your baby now?

Uh-oh... is there a little one to blame, or do you just not sleep well?

I wake up from pain many times a night. I have a sleep app that I started to use to see how much sleep I was actually getting. I get about 3.5 a night in total.
