I again am awake at the butt crack of dawn. I either can’t sleep or can’t stay sleeping. I remember getting like this somewhat with Madison. At least when I was pregnant with her, if I was asleep, it was all good. This is the second morning this week that I have woken up and cannot fall back to sleep. By the time I get tired again, Madison will be up for good. **Bang head here**

Any advice? I don’t drink caffeine. I went to bed around midnight last night, so I am definitely not getting enough sleep and could use more. I am tired all day. I do not nap during the day since Madison won’t. And I am pregnant, so I cannot take a shot of anything. 🙂

  1. When I wake up in the middle of the night I find it really hard to go back to sleep but luckily my daughter takes a 2 hour nap during the day so I can nap as well.

    Maybe you could have a friend watch Madison for a little bit during the day so you can nap?

  2. I find just taking a rest break helps. I'm not pregnant, but I suffer insomnia all the time, so this totally helps me feel refreshed.

    I pop in a movie, and lay on the couch. Pop in a movie for Madison, and just snuggle together watching it.

    I used to do this when my first baby was Mark, was little, (forget about naps all together when you have two. oy!) and when the movie was over, I'd be rested enough to go on with my day. 🙂
