Me too. I drink water and only sips right now because I am SO FLIPPING tired of peeing.

I'm immersed in mountains of pillows too. DH I think is finally getting it and stays on his side! Gawd 30-60 minutes? I thought every 2-3 hours was annoying. My dreams have been crazy too. Why can't I have sweet dreams about holding the new babe? Instead it's things like not being able to breathe or the worst one like 2 months back-- my DHs sudden death. I woke up freaking out. Horrid!
The hormones eff my sleep up horribly but i seem to be able to fall back asleep! Thank goodness. Not normal for me at all. I'm exhausted this pg.
When I get up to pee like 3 times a night I'm limping to the darn bathroom with such PAIN and soreness. I can't sleep past about 10 hours which is never all the way through. I am trying to get 8 every night right now because I'm such a biatch on less and seriously cannot function. My DD is going through some weird sleep issues and wakes me up all night too. Can you say torture? Yes it is!
Ladies-- esp. you first time moms-- get naps in and do whatever you can to get as much sleep as you can. You'll miss it dearly.
I saw something on Dr. Oz (yes I know that show is the worst but its a guilty pleasure!) and he was talking about Tart Cherry juice and its low levels of melatonin and how its bioavailability is very good. I went to buy some and got sticker shock at Sprouts. $7 for a tiny glass bottle. I might just fork over the money for it. My DD could use the extra sleeping boost too. Anyone tried this?
