    It's been a while since I posted but I've been reading along. We have a sleep consultant coming on Monday. DD is nearly 8 months and I can't remember the last time I had a block of more than 3 hours sleep 😰

    I find exercise helps heaps. Just a walk with my headphones in helps me so so much to deal with constant fatigue.

    I hope they help! I'm almost at the point of getting a sleep consultant myself. I didn't sleep well for most of my pregnancy and DS is now 15 months, and in that time I've only had 2 weeks where he slept well.

    I hope the sleep consultant is beneficial. Best of luck!

    I'll give it a try when DH gets home. Hopefully it will have cooled off enough by then that I don't feel like I am suffocating as soon as I step out the door! If DS continues to wake stupidly early, I'll just get him up and stick him in the pram and go for a walk first thing, even if I don't feel like it.

    I'm not coping well with the humidity up here. And I know it's already starting to cool off in Canberra.

    Where as I'm struggling with the hot dry evenings here. Haha. I'd love some humidity. My skin is getting so dry and I can feel myself age!

    Back in qld I used to go for walks around 5.30-7am. Enough to clear my head.

    DS is pulling all the books off his shelves and I am letting him do it. When I'm dressed I'll just dress him and we'll go.

    Hope the baby expo and Peppa Pig aren't too tortuous. I hope the rest of your day becomes F*** it Friday!
    Baby expos are always insane. DS loved it. Saw Peppa Pig. And Animals Rock.

    I am now ignoring the mess in the kitchen and lounge.

    I am so flipping tired from DS not sleeping last night. He got up every 2 hours. And I could barely sleep in the first place.

    So not looking forward to having 2 atm. About 6 weeks left until I have bub number 2. Why do we go back and have multiple children? Are we delirious from lack of sleep that it seems like a good idea?

    That is what I used to do with DS2 except it was in the ergo as he refused to be in a pram. But I would just get up with him and walk out the door - watch the sun rise. It helped my mood and put me a better frame of mind to face the day after yet another night of no sleep!

    I found the same thing. It's still dry. My feet and hands are particularly bad.

    Not to worry RAH, it will be cold there by the end of the month. 😀

    Will need to be walking at that time. It's too hot any other time. Poor DS, he's not dealing well with the heat at all!

    Default Not sleeping and not coping- help

    Dammit i was barely coping as it was and I kept hoping it was just a blip but it looks as though dd1 is dropping the day nap for the past week or so every second day she hasn't gone to sleep even after an hour or so in the bed (she continually calls out I'm ready! Mum I'm awake!). She copes just fine till bedtime without it. I on the over hand....
    She was exhausting as it was, the afternoons have now become a special kind of hell, not her fault but I've napped since high school, even when working (6-3) and I'm a mess without a lay down letting alone when stupidly sleep deprived
    Dd2 went down last night at 630, woke 730, 930, 12, 130-2am awake, 330-430 awake, then up for day at 6am. This is a typical night.

    Can't wait for daylight savings to end and hopefully can get a bit tougher with her.

    I'm dying inside
