I had this sleep pattern the first time when i was pregnant with my oldest. I would sleep a few hours get up in the middle of the night do things for a few hours and then go back to sleep for a few more hours. From time to time I fall into this pattern and it's not too bad the first few times but then it drives a person batty eventually when it gets to be every night. But i know sometimes things like being too hot or something else disturbing me in the slightest will wake me up and then all I do is toss and turn; so then I figure that I may as well get up and do something productive but quiet like come to mylot, watch tv, do dishes, sort wash that needs to be put away ect. Though this morning I have company as hubby let the lil guy take a late nap and when he takes a very late nap he's up in the middle of the night too. Hoping to get to bed in a little while I have a busy day ahead of us.

This has happened to me so much over this past year and it is caused by stress. I get awake and then have such troube getting back to seep. I woke up at 4 am this morning so after tossing and turning just came on line. I am now going to make a cup of coffee and watch the eary news before getting ready for work. It is so awful when this happens as I just drag myself through the day

hi:) I experienced that kind of sleeping pattern too before, even if I'm so tired the whole day when I sleep at night, I automatically wake up after midnight, and the worst is no one is awake and I can't watch movie because I'm afraid that I'll disturb them, but it only happened for a week then after that back to norm again, I don't like to go back on that kind of sleeping pattern anymore, it's hard and I'm getting so bored.

I have never had a sleep pattern like this, but I know a co-worker who is like this all the time. She will go lay down with her youngest when he goes to bed to get him to fall asleep faster, but she usually ends up falling asleep for a few hours. Then she is up again at around midnight till about 2-3 am before she goes back to sleep.

Hi Snuggle Oh yes I too go through this from time to time and it is a pain for me. The rest of the day I feel so exhausted, not sleepy but just so tired. I don't like interrupted sleep because it causes me to get headaches. I am one to get headaches daily and to add because of interrupted sleep drives me bonkers.

gah! I hate it when I can't sleep. It's good that you get up and do a few things because there's nothing worse than lying there, thinking you should be sleeping.

Hi 3SnuggleBunnies, different people have different sleeping habit. Moreover our sleeping habit would change depends on different situation. I also had an odd habit when I's first pregnant. I would get warm and sweated if the fan was not switched on. I was told not to expose to such windy situation and it's harmful to both the mum as well as the baby. But I would get depressed if couldn't fall into sleep the whole night. This happened during rainy day as well After suffering for a week or so I turned on the fan before going to bed and never bother about the remain to be proved consequence. What's more important than for a pregnant woman to have a proper sleep at night. Fortunate that I gave birth to a healthy baby and I could say I's healthy as well. I had such habit since the fourth month of the pregnancy. I would feel drowsy too right at the noon and at that time and inevitable a nap was a must for me to gain refreshed. I's lucky that my office hour was in the afternoon Happy posting and have a nice day
