Add me to the sleep camp. I have started the "wake every half hour but sleep like a rock when I do" trend..... I ALWAYS start the half hour waking at 2-3am each pregnancy, which is also when I have gone into labor the last 2 times. smile.gif

Fatigue over here too - I am anemic but I don't think that's the cause as I'm chronically anemic even when not pregnant so it's something that I'm used to. This is more then that. I'm not sleeping well most nights - up at least 5 times or more to readjust and have to get up to pee each time. It makes me crazy because I don't pee *that* often during the day...

I'm in the crappy sleep camp as well. I wake up every time I have to switch positions and then it takes me a bit to get back to sleep. And then sometimes I snore and it wakes me up... Argh.

Oh my gosh, YES!  Over the last couple weeks I have noticed I snore (or sometimes flat out SNORT) myself awake!  I hate it and it is embarrassing, even with just me and hubby there!  I was trying to figure out why the heck I keep doing that out of the blue so it makes me feel better to hear someone else going through something similar!

OMG haha that has happened to me, too! I am so congested I think that's what's causing it, but I swear that has never happened to me before even with colds and sinus infections :P

 

Edited to add I just read this little thread to my husband, and he's smiling and nodding at me knowingly, and I was laughing and said, "Wait, are you saying I'm SNORING at night?!" and he's like, "well, I wasn't going to wake you up for it, I think it's probably from your congestion and it's not that often" as if he's trying to diffuse the situation which I just think is hilarious. :P He hasn't heard me snort myself awake, but I know I've done it a couple times. So funny!

I too have found myself snorting myself awake! DH says I am snoring more - def. congested during the days.

I actually had a snort/snore in the bathtub the other night. I was finally getting a really nice relaxing bath and guess I got so comfortable that I started to fall asleep. Didn't last long. I think it is all about position, if I am on my back propped up.

I figured my fatigue was anemia I induced, but my blood work says I'm not(which strikes me as odd since I've always had chronic anemia, and it gets worse with pregnancy, but I guess blood work doesn't lie..). Blarghy! Also add me in the snoring/snorting train, happens every pregnancy lol, even though no one says anything to me, if I do it when the hubby or kids are up I try to play it off heh

I have also done this a few times lately even though I don't generally feel congested.  So weird!

Same here, not usually congested when it happens....so when it wakes me I always sniff and snort and try to figure out HOW it happened. LOL

Has anyone else noticed they hum a little bit too? Sometimes I'll hear myself softly humming as part of my breathing and it is just so bizarre to me.

I'm in that stage where I have to go to the bathroom the second I feel I need to pee or...I won't make it greensad.gif wtf! This did not happen with the other two!
post #175 of 224

Same here, alaskanmomma- more like...I feel the urge and it's only the tiniest but, but it can NOT be ignored!

 

Also...my boobs are starting to hurt like they did first trimester- heavy feeling, etc!

Yesterday, I got *so* frustrated. I was working on straightening the living room, and when that got uncomfortable, I would go work on dishes, and back and forth. DD and DS were supposed to be straightening their bedroom and playroom, but weren't having any of it, and it got increasingly uncomfortable to do either, so I wasn't getting as much as I wanted to done, and when I was washing dishes, I dropped one of my favorite salad plates just onto the divider part of the sink, and it smashed. That was about the last I could take, and just started crying. Then because I'm sick (again), that was messing with the congestion that was already messing with me, and got sick. The whole time, DF was on the computer, and not saying anything to me, even though I was crying so hard. (He has Asperger's Syndrome, and has a hard time knowing what the appropriate response to things is, so I guess that's kind of okay, that he didn't come to me.) But it was frustrating, because I just wanted him to come to me, or talk to me, and he didn't, and then I realized/knew why he wasn't, and then felt even worse, because I was upset at him for something he couldn't help.

My hips are aching this morning. Ouch. 

post #178 of 224

Horrible heartburn the last couple of days. Sleeping at night hurts my pubic bone sooo much. And I'm still getting restless legs which either prevent me from falling asleep or actually wake me up in  the middle of the night and I can't go back to sleep. However, for some reason, I can sleep just fine on the couch. I think its because I can sit up more with out having to lay on my side. That I am horribly HOT at night and can't sleep from that either.

My belly seems to have gotten super heavy and even more giant in the past week. Everyone likes to tell me that I haven't gained any weight and my belly sticks straight out, and oh, how wonderful is that?, but this is backfiring now, because while my back doesn't hurt, just carrying that weight around - getting up, walking, rolling over in bed, even sitting is an uncomfortable and difficult task. I just hope this means the babies are big and fat, because I am really suffering. I'm going to break down and get a support belt, I think.

 

I've also discovered I get so tired I could (and do) fall asleep sitting up around 4 or 5pm and that's pretty much the end of my day.
 

Also simultaneous to this, I've been having a lot more contractions (like every 3-6 minutes according to my NST!) so even though a cervical check revealed 2.9cm and the contractions have calmed down, I'm taking today off work before an OB appt and 32 week ultrasound and cervical check tomorrow, and might not be going back to work based on how all of that goes. That would really mess up my leave plans, but at the same time I'm so tired and my belly is SO HEAVY that I don't really mind it.

Once again (this happened to me the last 2 pg's, though worst last time) I have horrible pain where baby's butt always is at the top of my tummy. The skin is just SO sore. I rub it all the time and put arnica on it before bes, but I expect I will be dealin with it again until babe comes out. It is sooooooo sore. Sometimes it helps if I support my belly but it's usually just unavoidable. Probably because this is another big babe and even with that head way down in my pelvis it's bottom still sticks out the top!!
