November DDC ONE thread. March 2011. - Page 10

post #181 of 201

I'm not able to get to sleep before 1 or 2 in the morning, then I end up tossing and turning until around 5 or so. Just when I'm sleeping good, it's time to get up, but most of the time I just shut my alarm off, go back to sleep, and end up sleeping until sometime between 10:30 and noon. Then, as soon as I get up, I'm ready to go right back to bed. I have no energy. I'm just waiting for it to get better. I lay in bed or on the couch most of the day, watching tv, listening to music, reading, and surfing the internet. Then I feel terrible because I don't get anything done at all that I need to be sorting out for the baby. Oh well, I've got people helping me out, and 7 and a half more months to get everything straightened out.

Katie, welcome!

Mals-- whoa! Power baby! 181, intense! smile.gif

Okay, is anyone else not sleeping at all? I'm up every night at 4 until at least 6, and today I couldn't fall back asleep until 7:30, then it's been off and on unsettling dreams, can't get comfortable, etc. Such a pain! So it's 11:43 and I'm still in bed (after having breakfast in bed, haha) and trying to summon the energy to get to work at 2 and chase toddlers for four hours. Work is already completely sapping my energy, even working part-time, and if I don't sleep well the night before I'm really screwed!

Wow Miriam - twins!!! Congrats!I

I'm sleeping horribly, but I am SO TIRED and unmotivated when I am awake. The last few nights I've gone to lie down in bed right after dinner, and I don't get up til the morning. Of course I lie in bed and read til 11pm or 12am b/c I can't sleep. How frustrating. I remember conking out at 8:30pm all the time when I was pregnant before - what's the deal?!

Ive been super tired also.  I feel really lazy- my usually clean house is, well, not so usually clean.  My nausea has let up to the point that I can eat dry plain snacks and not vomit multiple times a day.  But even on days i feel good Im in bed asleep by 8.

MBA - Yay Twins! How exciting.


I am also really tired and having a hard time sleeping. It takes me so long to get to sleep, then I sleep really well until I wake up having to pee. Then it takes me a long time to get back to sleep again. This hapens like 3 times per night! going to bed at 8 or 9 and getting up for work at 6 is SOOOOOO hard!

Congratulations, Miriam!  How exciting!


I have a lot of trouble falling asleep. However, I have no trouble managing to at least lie in bed for like 20 hours a day. That's mostly what I have energy for.

Wow. My sleep has actually gotten a lot easier. I used to lay awake in bed at night and have to read and read and read (Usually 2WW symptoms =D) until I got myself to fall asleep.


Since I got pregnant, as soon as my head hits the pillow, I'm out. I wake up a few times to pee, but I always fall right back asleep.


I get really bad nausea if I go more than two hours without food. It sucks. It's making me gain more weight than I want to, but I can't control it. I try my best to eat healthy, but what baby wants, baby has to get. LOL


The constipation is finally easing up and becoming random bouts of diarrhea. =( I'd almost prefer the constipation.


That's about it. I had a "friend" over the weekend tell me I've "let myself go". HAH. Needless to say, we aren't friends anymore. Jerk.

Ditto on the exhaustion.  I'm sleeping well... always been a skill of mine... but I am feeling exhaustion on a level that is brand new to me.  So strange.  It is really the only thing reminding me that I am pregnant.  Well, that, and the fact that my pants are all too tight. redface.gif

For some reason my computer is acting wierd, but only on this site. Don't know if its firefox or what, grrr. Anyways I have been sleeping fine, but my dreams are kinda strange. I was watching sister wives and that night had a dream that a girl I went to high school with was my sister wife and she was pregnant too. Very strange. I had my first prenatal yesterday. We weren't able to hear the hb with the doppler, but I am only 9 weeks. Now I have to schedule labs, next appointment is at 14 weeks so hopefully we can actually hear something.

I'm one that has to pee 3-4 times a night when I'm pregnant!  Luckily (or not so luckily) I still have a night-nursing toddler, so I'm used to getting up 3-4 times anyway.  I do fall asleep easily and stay asleep, but I'm more exhausted with this pregnancy than either of my other 2.

post #191 of 201

I totally understand and really want to give you gals big hugs, espically those of you working!! With my first pregnancy I worked 8-10 hours a day 5 to 7 days a week and it was the worse thing ever. I told myself i would never do that again. I hated my first pregnancy, but thankfully we were able to down size our living style and this time I get to stay home. I have been having a little trouble at night sleeping but I try not to let it bother me because i know I can just take a nap during the day. Luckily my little is big enough that she just sits in bed with me and watches tv while mommy and baby take a nap. I AM SO BLESSED!!

So this is where all the action is!  lol.gif


Please add me:  Jaimee, #3, due 11/28, big surprise!

Ooh, I'd like to be added as well:  Christina EDD Nov.6th, #2


Can't sleep, so catching up on our due date club!  Looks like we're really getting going- can't wait until the end of this 1st trimester, I'm exhausted!! I slept from noon-2:30, then 4pm-midnight the other day, then up for two hours, and back to bed.  Yikes!


post #194 of 201

Well, I have been sleeping like a log. I have to go to bed at 9 and I have to have a nap during the day, or what tiny bit of brain is left is fried. Although there are bathroom breaks in the middle of the night. - urgh. This is my third child and I was working with my first two and I swear I never had things this bad. And it all started before my missed period too... I've worked out the sleep bit, but I'd really like some of my brain back. I can't function well without it!


Oh, and steak, lots of, and tuna are my new best friends!

Lindsey- Pregnant with #2 biggrinbounce.gif  After hoping for 6 months wink1.gif  Due around Nov 24, 2011!

post #197 of 201

I am feeling SO discouraged :(  I thought last week I was feeling better, but at almost 11 weeks my nausea is getting SO bad that yesterday I thought I was going to have to gto to the hospital.  I thought for SURE that for the first time in a pregnancy I could see a light at the end of the tunnel.  My body is tired of being hungry and feeling nasty...I cant take a vitamin OR eat vegetables.  I guess I just need to be reminded that this will pass. 



post #198 of 201

Sorry Ashley!  I'm 10 weeks and still having really rough nights.  I know just how depressing it can be to feel awful day in and day out.  It's exhausting.  Is there anything you haven't tried yet?  Acupuncture?  That has really helped me during the day at least.  I've been able to eat and get a few chores done around the house.  I hope it passes quickly for you!!  hug2.gif

post #199 of 201

Hugs to those of you still suffering. It really does make it hard to enjoy being pregnant. I'm finally not nauseous all the time, but I am still constantly starving. I'm running out of good snacks to eat because I'm so tired of pretty much everything. It's really becoming a chore just to eat. 

post #200 of 201

Well I finally had my dating ultra sound and sadly I am not due until December 1st :(. I had two ultrasounds by two different people to confirm. I really want a november baby so maybe he/she will come 1 day early. But either way I am going to move to december forum so that I am not the last one here. It was nice meeting you ladies. Bye and goodluck.
