I have not "slept through the night" since I found out I was pregnant (not that I did very often before then, either). Mostly because of waking up to pee. For a while I would wake up, use the bathroom, and fall back asleep pretty easily--I felt basically rested. For the past two weeks, though, I have hardly slept. I wake up and I have a horrible sore, dry throat, and the longer I am awake, the more I find myself jumping up to use the bathroom. Last night was a relatively "good" night--I woke up four times, and slept restlessly in between. I am supposed to be working from home, and I spend my days when DD is at daycare sleeping--yesterday I slept from 10-2 and today from 9-12.
I got a cold a couple weeks ago and it is just dragging on, I know because my immune system is compromised from lack of sleep. I feel so depressed--I was really hoping to recharge before this baby is born, but now I feel like I will never be well rested again in my LIFE.
I take Benadryl and melatonin and magnesium, because I had to give up the Trazodone I used to take (not safe for pregnancy). I'm trying to work in exercise (laps, which usually knock me out) but it hasn't made much difference.
No real answers out there, probably, but needed to vent. I don't remember it being quite this bad my last pregnancy, though I know I didn't sleep well then, either.
