Do you feel worse? DS is finally sleeping for 9 hours in a row and has for just under a week and you know what...I feel like crap!! I was thinking about feeling all rested but nope...I feel sluggish and wiped out. Like now I'm getting too much sleep.<br>
Did this happen to you?

Sometimes on the weekend DH lets me sleep in or take naps until DD needs to eat and yes, I feel sluggish when I do it. I thought it was just me. What would cause that? Weird.

When DS sleeps soundly I feel like crap. I think it's something to do with abolishing your sleep debt but I am afraid to research further.

Oh yeah I remember that back before this little one arrived!<br><br>
I think it starts with waking up in shock at 8 am and not believing that it can be that late, then wondering why I still feel crap<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Perhaps you get used to surviving on what you can get and then you body needs to readjust?

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nod.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nod"> I have always wondered what is the physiological explanation for this. I noticed it many times pre-motherhood, too, like when I was in college and would sleep 2-5 hours a night for a week or two at a stretch because I had so much work to do, and then after turning it all in I'd sleep 10 or more hours thinking it would be so rejuvenating but wake up feeling TERRIBLE.<br><br>
EnviroDaddy adores sleeping (he says he is part cat on his father's side) and one thing I've noticed about him is that when he's gotten a really long luxurious night of sleep, he's often low in energy and will be up for as little as 6 hours before he wants to go back to sleep again!<br><br>
Mysterious!

Thats what I think. And then when your body has readjusted your little one starts waking more. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> And the cycle begins again . . .

maybe you're still not getting deep sleep. I find that even when dd sleeps 6 or 7 hours, I still wake multiple times. Anticipation, I guess...

Yes! My husband usually takes ds for a long walk on Saturday mornings so I can sleep, and I feel worse on Saturdays than I do all week long! I don't know why this is -- my only guess is that it just reminds my body how much sleep I would need to get caught up!
