    So, who else can't sleep at night? I have been up since about 3am.. 5am now... wishing I could go back to bed and sleep.

    I went through a stage of not being able to get to sleep until 2am. I've just stopped waking up every half an hour during the night (not so often now). Today was the first day this week where I've felt like I need to sleep at 2pm. For the last two or three weeks I've been really really tired after being awake for only a few hours.

    It's all horrible. Hope you get over your insomnia soon.

    In the past few weeks I've been waking up at 1-2am wide awake, but I do eventually fall back to sleep. I'm exhausted in the afternoons and I think I'm going to need a nap tonight. I'm pretty sure this is all a normal part of pregnancy, but I'm just plain TIRED.

    I get bouts of insomnia periodically. It's about the worst thing in the world! Either I flat-out just can't fall asleep and let my peripheral brain race, or I fall asleep, wake up in 2 hours and let my peripheral brain race. :x Either way, I can't shut the mutha DOWN. Then I have to sleep walk through the next day.

    Hmm I've have bouts of staying up late and it takes me about a week to get out of the habit. Last night I was up till 3:30am... not good because I have to do some online exams for a job application and they're bloody hard too. Which doesn't help the sleeping situation because I stress out about these tests and can't get to sleep.

    Tonight I went to the gym.... I hate that place, but it definitely acts like a sedative later! ;) I expect to sleep like a baby tonight.

    Ive worked night shift for about 7 years, my body clock is destroyed. I sometimes go for over 48 hours with no sleep. and other times just cant wake up at all.

    Moral of the story is... never work nights

    yuck, insomnia... after all that drinking, i thought i'd be out like a light... but for some reason, i couldn't sleep too good :( i think i might have been dehydrated... so now i'm posting here, downloading pictures from cinco de mayo and posting more to myspace :p

    i drank some water, but still not tired yet... grumble... stupid 3am wake ups...

    luckily i don't normally have insomnia... can't wait to get my memory foam bed soon!
