So, my darling sweet baby slept for six and a half hours last night, her longest stretch ever! Unfortunately, I was awake for half of it--it took me a while to fall asleep, I woke up an hour later, and then again about two hours before she woke up--and couldn't get back to sleep. I've been having this problem a lot lately, sleeping really lightly/fitfully and having trouble drifting off or with waking up too early. I listen to meditation tracks on my iPod (mostly just for the music/soothing voices) but the waking up early (before she wakes up) I think is due to stress and my body clock being completely screwy.
Anyone else having this trouble? I never thought I'd be blessed to have a baby who slept so well at 7 weeks, and am so incredibly grateful (she does NOT do that every night!) but I am SO frustrated to be exhausted anyway. Just needed to vent!
p.s. Part of the issue is despite sleeping with earplugs and a noise machine one room away from her, I hallucinate that she's crying or moving and it wakes me up (she's in our bedroom and I had to move to the guest room because her sleep noises kept waking me up). It's maddening. My nerves are shot.
