No rest for the weary...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I don't know about you guys but I am NOT sleeping well. It was the numbness in my hips and here lately I have been waking up for no apparent reason at all. I toss and turn through out the night. I am of the thought that it is Mother Natures way of saying "get use to it, your not going to get any sleep for a looong time." You know it's bad when instead of fantasizing about a tall frosty glass (or two) of really great tasting beer or fantastic unencumbered sex, you longingly dream about uninterrupted, blissful, sleep...sigh.

Same here for a week at least now. I'm getting up at least 2/3x to go to the bathroom. And my 2 1/2 yr old has been having sleeping issues for almost 2 months. It's like I dread going to bed b/c it's not even restful... But that beer does sound good.

Same here! This baby WILL NOT let me sleep on my side. Either side. I try every night, and he has this little fit, kicking and wiggling around until I flip onto my back. I don't sleep very well once I'm on my back, but that's the only way I'm getting any sleep right now.

I upped the number of pelvic rocks I do before bed from 40 to 75 because I had started have problems with sciatica, but besides helping with the sciatica I've also started sleeping longer, sounder stretches.

I get that hip pain at night, too. Sometimes I wake up so sore that I think, "Good lord, have my hips just broken and collapsed onto each other?" Then, since I'm awake from the soreness, my body realizes it has to pee, so I have to roll my cracking self out of bed and to the bathroom for the fourth time. Joy.

Other than that, though, everything is fine. Really, though, I'm glad babe and I are healthy -- I don't have much to complain about. But, yes, I understand the grouchiness about nighttime and sleep.
