Hi there mylotters. I just wondering what makes you wake up in the middele of the night. I hate our neighborhoods dog. I think it always bark like an hour or so, and wakes me on my sleep, then I cant sleep anymore. Do you have the same problem like mine? Or there are some other things that wakes you up in your sleep?

well, its not as peaceful as everyone thought. we're near the street so i can still hear cars and other vehicles passing by. but in the evening, its very seldom. i kinda have this selective hearing where i only hear what i want to hear (haha!). that's how i can get a good night's rest.... see you around!

there are motorcycles who has loud engines, that is one of the reason why i wake up in the middle of the night. kapag may ipis har har har. i cant sleep without cathching it. when i need to pee is one more thing or if i need to drink. and one good reason is when my son starts to cry if he needs milk or if he needs to pee too.

Hi there checapricorn. I think you have a nice place out there, hearing the birds in the middle of night. Me, at winter I usually wake up because my feet is cold. I have to get out of the bed and turn on the heater again. And yes I always have a nice straight sleep when its fall or winter. Happy day to you.

One thing that wakes me up int he middle of the night is my kids, when I feel for them and there is unusual feel, like they are wet or cold, I wake up and give something to them, another one is my youngest baby who still nurse from time to time..

hi, koikoikeiji! i wake and get up in the middle of the night if i have to pee. also, when it gets too hot. then i have to get up and adjust the airconditioner. without aircon or at least an electric fan, i have trouble sleeping. luckily we have no noisy neighbor's dog :-) have a nice day!!!

For me, it is due to a lot of reason. It may be due to external, like people playing basketball in the middle of the night. It might be because of, like someone mentioned, nature call. However, it may be due to insomnia, and one of the causes of the insomnia is depression. Do check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Insomnia for more details of the different types of insomnia, for example; onset insomnia, middle-of-the-night insomnia, middle insomnia and terminal insomnia. There are many causes for insomnia so you can read more about it too. =)

Hi Koikoikeiji!! I sometimes wake up in the middle of the night because I have to go to the toilet or because the temperature is so hot. It's so rarely for me to wake up in the middle of the night because of the noise cause I usually fall asleep when I've been so tired. So things like that wouldn't disturb me.
