    Status report: Sunday night, work tomorrow, 12.35am and STILL wide awake! :x

    Just wanted a moan really as i've been lying in bed yet again, tossing and turning and getting annoyed with DH's little snores and grunts etc and generally not being able to sleep a wink!

    Why is it that I can spend the entire day being shattered and nearly falling asleep everytime my bum comes into contact with the sofa and yet when I should be sleeping it doesn't work!

    Anyone have any good "getting off to sleep" techniques??!!

    Tan xx

    P.S. moan over, thanks! Going to try again now!

    Morning Tan

    1.13a.m - in same boat as you. - Wot a nightmare it is eh! :twisted:

    I'm due back work tommorow after 2 weeks off - not that that is anything to do with it - I've been like this for weeks now- cant get comfortable, constantly going loo (that has a thread all of its own in the third trimester bit!), Every night now for about a month Ive not been going sleep till the early hours of the morning - and then have to get up for work at 7.00am - I tell you its not a pretty sight.

    Yet, like you - in the daytime I could sleep for England - but thats no good when you have to be at bloody work - arghghghghgh

    If you get any good ideas let me know! I would love to take Nytol but Im sure you cant when your pregnant.

    Good luck with the 'Z's

    Tan,

    I was like you exactly at 12 weeks as well.

    For some unknown reason, week 14 has been awesome....I am sleeping like I've never slept before at night - OH is complaining that he can't sleep now - bad luck to him I say.

    It get's better mate but I would just eat something, maybe have a milky drink and then just watch tele until you can't anymore or until you start yawning.

    Good luck. x
