Ladies, I am so frustrated!!! I am SO tired all of the time. However, I'm waking up every couple of hours at night. It's like I wake up (wide awake) and it takes me about 15 minutes or so to fall back to sleep. Then the next day I can hardly function because I am so tired!!! Anyone have any advice???

15 minutes? Consider yourself lucky! It is frustrating. I wake up every few hours, and always at least one of those times, it takes me an hour or 2 to fall back asleep. Someone suggested taking prenatal vitamins in the morning instead of at night (if you currently take them at night), but I tried that and it didn't help me. Sorry! I don't have any helpful advice for you, but you're not alone.

I completely have the same problem. Sometimes I fall asleep for an hour.... and wake up feeling like I could never get back to sleep. I normally get up and turn on the TV to something REALLY boring.... it helps.

Ladies, I TOTALLY understnd your insomnia issues and it sucks!!! I've been dealing with it for so long now, I'm now 28 weeks pregnant. A good night for me is 6 hrs of sleep, but usually it's more like 2 hrs of sleep than up for like an hour and then back to bed for anthor hr or so, and then it just seems like I never get any solid sleep. I swear I feel like a zombie half the time. I run on like 5 hrs of broken up sleep..........uuuuuuuuugggggggggghhhhhhhhh. Hormones I guess, huh?

I think its just a preview of what we have in store for us once our precious little babies are born!! Then we will REALLY get no sleep! : )

I'm so glad to hear I'm not alone with this exhaustion/insomnia thing. I'm wide awake at 2:30am every morning and can't get back to sleep for at least 60-90 minutes. I've tried laying there, cleaning, watching tv, reading and nothing helps. I now consider 4:30 am as "sleeping in", but I'm ready for a nap by 9am.

I've almost forgotten what a good night's sleep is! I also wake every couple of hours and find it hard to get back off to noddyland.....but what makes it harder is that I also work night duty (I'm a nurse) - sleeping during the day is hard enough when you're not pregnant.

me too...I have no advice but I know exactly what all of you are feeling. It sucks!

Try a little nap in the day if you can. I have been getting headaches too so before bed I take a Tylenol P.M. (only one) and I find my sleep is a little more productive.
