Ugh that sucks. I am tired and have crazy dreams where im fighting sharks or a mermaid lol.

Some women feel the best they have ever been while pregnant. Maybe try a bed time routine. Not eating past 7 or 8, no electronics. etc. Sometimes I listen to a calming breathing thing on youtube. or listen to my audio book for 15 mins.

Hope you can get some sleep.

How is everything else going?

I was always told if you cant fall back to sleep in like 15 min to get out of bed. You should only be in bed if you are sleeping or you train your body wrong. Dont know if its true though.

I am fine. I feel nothing. Almost died this morning I was able to pull away before I was rear ended and sent to the hospital.

I dont want morning sickness. But I would like some more symptoms. lol

I am going to take a weeks estimator on thursday with shawn. should say 4 weeks then. I only have boob soreness when i wake up.

Hopefully you never make it to the throw up point! Just have some motion sickness and move on. I already have pregnancy gums so I dont think puking will help that.

Care, I feel you! Some nights I sleep like a baby, other nights I feel like I wake up every hour on the hour....and WIDE AWAKE, sometimes heart racing like I startled myself awake. The dreams don't help! What helps me is taking a warm shower before bed, and DH puts the classical station on Pandora on his phone on super low volume so I barely hear it. I still have some seriously effed up dreams but I manage to stay asleep most of the time - until I have to pee at least. :doh:

My dreams have been crazy too. And I get more of them than I normally do.

I havent had to get up to pee yet but if i go to bed and dont fall asleep fast enough I have to get up again and go. I do move around a lot more too. I have woken up with that heartbeat panic feeling but only once a couple weeks ago.

Last night there were sharks and trying to get out the water fast enough. Good thing they werent accurate sharks. Then I was trying to go into labour while rolling around on a medicine ball. Then My friends and I were mermaids in some exibit at the zoo and I was organizing escape but this big bird was trying to get me and the fat mermaid didnt want to go and was spoiling it all. lol CRAZY. At least im not having nightmares like my girlfriend had. Hopefully I dont jinx myself. Maybe we should start a crazy dream thread lol.

I like to take baths before bed cause then your all warm and cozy. They also make apps where you can listen to rain and it has a timer. I know I like that when i dated a guy that would use that to fall asleep.

I had the same problem during my first tri (and it's back now that I'm at the end of the 2nd) - my doc recommended half a tab of unisom for waking up in the middle of the night (a full tab makes me drowsy in the morning) and cutting out liquids at least two hours before bed unless truly thirsty (which, my doc said, if you're getting enough water during the day, you won't be).

Also - I was getting too hot at night and only realized it when DH said something. So we put a lighter cover on the bed for me and it seems to have helped!

I love birds...and bugs...haha I think it's the way my mom raised me and introduced me to things. I wasn't punished for picking up snakes when I was little...or for studying spiders...or playing with frogs. My mom would explain that certain things you should stay away from, or pick up a certain way, but she always encouraged my curiosity and fostered my love and fascination with nature. To this day if there is a jumping spider in the house, I will catch it in my hands to put it outside, but not before I take a close look at its fuzzy face! :) So cute!

The one creature that freaks me out is a tick. I grew up in the deep south and had to pull more off and burn than I care to remember! GROSS!

I'm having trouble sleeping as well. At night I mean. In the daytime I'm borderline narcoleptic, lol. I wake up 3-4 times a night and I'm always sweating when I wake up. Also tossing and turning like crazy.

I'm also having vivid dreams and some of them have been pretty cool. I had one dream where I was laughing with my husband and I said "See, I told you it was a boy!" It was so vivid it was crazy. And another one, I had a dream I was in a bed like you see in a doctor's office and there was a monitor in front of the bed. I could see the baby's heartbeat on the monitor. That was right around the time I was having pretty bad anxiety due to cramping, so the dream was kind of calming. :D
