I was up for over two hours in the middle of the night.  I got up to pee as usual and then my mind just engaged and it took forever to fall asleep again.  Fortunately my husband got up with our daughter so I could sleep in a little.

That's the worst part of having to get up during the night.  If you get good and awake, your mind kicks in and you begin to go over things that happened from the day before or the things that are going to happen.  Is there any way you can will yourself back to sleep?  I'm sure you'll need it in the near future.

I never could will myself back to sleep.  Either I go back to sleep or I don't.  I'm just glad it happened on the weekend and not during the week when I have to get up early with my daughter.

I hate that part of the third trimester is that it's so hard to sleep. When you wake up, then it's even harder to get back to sleep. I can't wait for this baby to be born.

I hate when that happens. I wake up almost every night to pee, but usually I can fall right back to sleep. The nights I can't really stink though because I don't get to sleep in most of them. I hope that you are able to get sleep tonight.

This happens to me sometimes.  I'm up every night regardless, but like JamieLynn, normally I get back to sleep pretty quickly.  It's so frustrating when I can't.

I was very lucky to never have issues sleeping when I was pregnant but that could be due to taking a ton of naps too. Last night I was awoken by my cat but that is about it. Now today is dragging around like I have been working in a coal mine for the past 10 hours. :lol:

This was the worst for me when I was pregnant with my twins. I had such a hard time sleeping because I was up going to the bathroom constantly and I had heartburn like you wouldn't believe. At that time I'm pretty sure I could tell everyone the whole late night television lineup because it was the only thing that I could do. I'm not even sure how I made it through that one, but I did.

For some reason I think it just hits some women different. When I was pregnant it was not a big deal, but now that I am not pregnant it seems to come around every so often. This weekened I was awake at three in the morning, on both days, for no reason.

I was exactly the same. I found that the slightest thing woke me, and once I was awake I couldn't get back to sleep. It was incredibly difficult as it meant that I was exhausted by the time the baby came.

This was me when I was pregnant. Something about laying down made the heartburn worse so most nights I didn't even try to lay down in bed; I'd sleep in a recliner in the living room instead.

Unfortunately, good sleep is really gone once the babies come. You'll spend the first couple of years getting up with them, then following years checking on them, and finally staying awake til they come home! Once all that is done, you are so old, insomnia sets in. Just thought I'd brighten up your day, LOL!

This happened with me today! I woke up several hours earlier than normal, went to the bathroom, laid back down, and just could *not* fall back asleep. I gave up trying about 45 minutes later and just put a pot of coffee on.
