ETA:
Today I had to start dropping/picking up my DC to/from school. I had to wake at 5a.m, so I needed my rest. I kept waking up and forcing myself to go back to sleep. I finally couldn't do it anymore, so at 4:30a.m I just stayed awake and have been up ever since.

My mother is nocturnal and 2 of my DD. What about you ladies????

thanks j6

that sounds really rough. I can't imagine how we'd cope if we had to get up for school :
I love homeschooling

Hey lovely nocturnal ladies!

My mom is an insomniac, but she's definitely diurnal. I've always been nocturnal. As a kid, I "wasn't allowed" to nap (I was never tired anyway) in preschool or I would be up all night. Apparently, my mom had to argue with the school to get them to tolerate that

I also got a letter from the jury duty people, just to confirm change of address. I have to let them know that I won't be available for jury duty because I live on another continent now.

I would love to homeschool, but I don't know if I'm cut out for it. DH would, so we'll see how we work it out. DS is only 4, but he's already talking about how he wants to go to school and, honestly, I need a break from parenting non-stop (I'm SAHM now). We'll cross that bridge when we get there.

[B]east carolina [/B], I'm also diurnal. I'm def. not nocturnal, but can I stay. Even if I only get a few hours of sleep I can't sleep through the morning.

Who's up?

I discovered settlers of catan online today. so that's what I'm doing.

I also slipped on a muddy hill today and hurt my back. Baby is okay but thank goodness for chiropractic. Tomorrow I'm getting a massage. There's no way I want that messing up the rest of the pregnancy.

That's a relief. I had images in my head that I didn't want for a good long time after I did my jury duty. It was truly horrible.

Ouch! I'm glad your babe is ok. Enjoy your massage and keep yourself warm.

yay!
I have no idea how jury duty works, so, does that mean now you've 'done' your duty and you're off their lists? or could you get called up again?

duh! we don't (that's the whole point of the thread)
:
just kidding. when I really need a night's sleep, I take a little valerian tincture, maybe with skullcap and/or hops tincture.

Majikfaerie. Are your sleep remedies ok to take while nursing?
post #377 of 504
hi all you night-owl mommas!
Introducing myself; this is the 1st time I've seen this thread and thought I'd say hello. I'm totally nocturnal. I would stay up ALL night if I could (and sleep ALL day!). Unfortunately my ds has pretty strict ideas about waking at 6:30. Luckily (in a way) my dh was laid off a few weeks ago so he has been taking the "morning shift", reluctantly of course, so after I feed ds I get a few hours before he comes in for his a.m. nap, then we sleep a bit longer. It's working so far but I am *spoiled* and have no clue what I'll do when he goes back to work! I'm already dreading tomorrow morning because we have to drive down to a dr's appointment and I know dh will want to leave wayyyyy earlier than necessary, IMO, and I'll be giving up my morning "nap". Boo! I'm still experiencing 1st trimester fatigue so it sucks big time being tired all day; my naps are more necessary than voluntary, yk? (though I don't think dh sees it that way!) Here's hoping I'll get some energy back and be able to deal with my 9 1/2 month old crazy kid! ttys

Hello all
I've always been a night owl, but recently I've been trying to get back on DD's sleep track .. only her father refuses to let me sleep. Seriously. I can't stand the snoring. Oh well. He's getting up in a few minutes to go to work so I'll have the bedroom to myself. YAY. Besides, this gives me time to work on my blog series. I just finished my first article in a blog series about parenting about twenty minutes ago!!
What are you all up to? We soo need a live chat section to this.

I believe so. but be aware that some might go through your milk and make the baby sleep as well (which might not be a bad thing
