View Full Version : Lost Sleep
I am about 5 weeks pregnant and i am already loosing sleep. I am running to the toilet every 5 minutes. Once i do get to sleep i sleep for about 5 / 6 hours then when i wake up i am tired again 2 hours later. Whats going on???
Welcome to the wonderful world of hormones. It's all normal. By the way get used to broken sleep. It is just a fact of life for parents!!
Congrats to you.
The first sign I noticed was my sore breasts at 3 - 4 weeks (felt like I had gone a few rounds with Mundine! ), I kinda dismissed them (thinking that my hormones had just changed after going off the pill)- we had only been TTC for four weeks!!
week 5 included lack of appetite (VERY weird for me) and (lots of) lack of sleep- I got up and cleaned the kitchen at two in the morning!
haven't had fully fledged morning sickness yet, just waves of all day nausea- yuck...
oops- meant to post that reply in another section (blush!!!) still getting used to the system :)
Being REALLY tired is normal for me when I'm pregnant- luckily it wears off after about 14 weeks...
Until you experience that exhaustation of early pregnancy it's hard to imagine that bed for 24 hours might actually be the only thing you can do... Hope it wears off for you soon- make sure you're eating lots of healthy food and getting enough iron and folic acid. My midwife always tells me that you need to lie down for AT LEAST 10 mins every day too- have a nap when you can!
