    i cannot sleep anymore.
    no matter what i do... if i lie on one side then i can stay like that for about 15 minutes then i need to turn over again onto the other side... and the hip/leg pain while doing this is AWFUL! (nothing compared to labour i know, but it's still bad! lol )

    it started getting unbearable 3 nights ago, so for the last 3 nights i've had zero sleep. i've tried sleeping sat up, sat on my nursing chair, and my bed looking like a pillow factory, but it still wont let me get even half an hour nap.

    but yesterday i walked all around town christmas shopping, went to college and work on thursday night, so i thought it would tire me out so much that i'd just sleep.

    but nothing :wall:
    usually when i haven't slept, i get a banging headache, but i haven't slept at all in 3 nights and i don't feel any different.
    i've no headaches, i've still got plenty of energy so why is my body not registering that it needs to sleep???

    i'm ok with not having any sleep because i feel fine, it's just surely my body needs it??

    i think its normal because i am exactly the same, i am tossing and turning all night and eventually get up after 3 or 4 hours but dont even feel tired, maybe its our bodies getting us ready for the years of sleepless nights awaiting us :D

    I've been getting little to no sleep during the night... last night was probably the worst... between heartburn, hip pain, pelvic pain, numbness and peeing... I might as well give up now... On the up side, at least when the baby comes along, waking up several times in the night to feed the baby won't seem so much like a mammoth task :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

    just got back from a break away with OH and could not sleep on the bed in our hotel - tossed and turned all night and to no avail... BUT i bought a lilo at a shop and OMG it was bliss!!!! i still didn't find that i needed much sleep, but for comfort and rest during the day (albeit in the sunshine) it was BLISS...! loads better than my bolster pillows...

    i'm pretty sure its just our body's way of preparing us for lots of sleepless nights to come... :shock: :D

    sleep? whats that?! :rotfl:

    yesterday I was laying the flooring in our dining room/kitchen with my mum and we started at 10am and finished at 8pm (17 square metres of laminate!) and I was totally knackered...still didn't sleep last night though :cry:

    I feel like I'm functioning on autopilot...somedays I have no idea how I get through the day I'm so tired and as soon as I get home from work I'm wide awake again! 4 more days left then I can kip during the day :cheer: :cheer:
