ARGH! So we've been through almost a full week of horrible nights, and I am seriously sleep-deprived. She's been fighting sleep until 4 am and waking herself up continually. Tonight things FINALLY started to get better. I got her to go down for the night at midnight!!! So why am I up?<br><br>
Because my heart is racing and I can't freaking go to sleep. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/splat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="splat">:<br><br>
This tends to happen to me when I get past a certain point of total exhaustion. It's like I am too tired to relax. Also, it doesn't help having to share the bed. With anyone. Baby, cats, let alone another adult. I just want to lay down by myself and sleep for a few hours, not even 8, just 3 or 4, but there is nowhere to go. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">:

It happens to me a lot, but not tonight because I busted out the vino tonight.

Yeah, vino would probably help. Or even cal/mag, but I'm out.<br><br>
Anyhow, about 2:15 she started to get restless. I nursed her and she stayed asleep but was flailing around and smacking her lips in her sleep. Agh. At some point soon after that I realized that every single being in the house, including one dreaming dog, three lead weight cats positioned around the bed, a flailing 10 month old, and a lightly snoring adult male...was asleep. Oh wait, except me! And then I started to inwardly do this again <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/splat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="splat"> Soon after she woke up officially and now we're all up, including the dog and the cats. They're all in the living room and I am trying to find my sanity. Have you seen it??<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">:

Wake up your husband and tell him to deal with DD until you get some rest. That is ridiculous. You're gonna go insane. Your heart is racing because you NEED SLEEP Mama!!! ( I realize I'm typing this well after the moment but if it goes on again tonight wake his arse up )

Haha, funny you should mention because that's what I ended up doing. He stayed up with her until 5:30 while I slept, then she came back to bed and all was well. And he skipped his class and slept until 11.
