Sympathy and understanding!
I've wayyyy to many things in my brain so it just won't switch off and let me sleep sad

Me to, I put bleach in the loo of the en-suit before bed and I now feel sick, think from the fumes

Hate not being able to sleep angry

Zzz I just got up for a cuppa. Back in bed again but brain still buzzing

Pretend it's time to get up.
If you're a snooze the alarm clock type you may find it works in making you cuddle back down in deep dark comfort of blankets!

I've given up on sleep so now sitting in the sofa watching old episodes of 8 out of 10 Cats on channel Dave

I wish grin I want to get up and do some work admin and housework but DH is working in the morning I don't start work till 4pm tomorrow I just know I won't be able to get up, unplug laptop and disappear without waking him so I'm being still and quiet grin

Me too. I hate not sleeping and I'm so tired. This is the worst night for a while though.

Me too. Spent the last 5 bloody hours trying to get the baby to sleep. I now no longer inderstsnd the phrase "slept like a baby" because mine doesn't fucking sleep angry

Finally at 3am I fell asleep, now I am awake again. FML

Full day's work ahead of me.

MY SYMPATHY to anyone who's baby doesn't sleep sad thankfully my DS 2.2 does, yet I can't .....


Enjoy your day everyone - pass the matchsticks

Wide awake club again!
DD is a bit poorly and teething so I'm downstairs on sofa with her. She's now fast asleep on my lap so I dare not move. I'm really hungry and need chocolate and tea - but stuck here so can't have either. Grrrrr

Mindysgotswag Thu 04-Feb-16 02:59:20

Wide awake here too. Work and family things going through my mind so I'm sat on the sofa watching repeated Come dine with me in the hope of it sending me to sleep.

Not working yet...and 3 episode in!

Pregnant and in agony with footcramp. Feels doubly unfair as my toddler is sick and woke me every 45 minutes last night. Now she's sleeping beautifully and I'm exhausted but awake. angry

Devilishpyjamas Thu 04-Feb-16 03:04:05

Me too. Although I need ds1 to go to sleep first....

pantsjustpants Thu 04-Feb-16 03:36:55

Wide awake here too....

My dh is in hospital so lying here worrying about everything. Plus, and I know it sounds wimpy, I don't sleep well when he's not here. It doesn't happen often so never had to get used to it!

scarednoob Thu 04-Feb-16 04:31:15

Hello. Can I play too? Greedy baby woke me up 45 mind ago and is still sucking away.

fuzzyllama for you:

scarednoob Thu 04-Feb-16 04:32:09

* mins, not mind!

WhoWants2Know Thu 04-Feb-16 04:36:02

I don't even have a baby, but still can't sleep. I've tried a bath and changing clothes, but no good. It would happen on the day where I have an early start...

fuzzyllama Thu 04-Feb-16 04:42:59

scared that is so accurate. Bdp is snoring away next to me. Is it wrong that it fills me with all kinds of rage ?

PurpleHairAndPearls Thu 04-Feb-16 04:51:17

Pants I hope your DH is ok thanksto you and everyone suffering here.

I'm awake for the second night in a row due to high pain levels. It's bearable in the day but fuck the nights are long atm. I am lucky in that I can rest in the day though these days, I feel for everyone having to get up with little DC or work after nights like these.

I want to get up but I'll wake DH up.

scarednoob Thu 04-Feb-16 04:52:03

Mine has been snoring away blissfully on our lovely squashy new sofa since he fell asleep during a film at 10pm. It gives me the rage too! Grrrr....

Devilishpyjamas Thu 04-Feb-16 04:55:52

Still awake... (As is ds1)

Proginoskes Thu 04-Feb-16 05:26:20

I'm still awake too (though it's only about 20 past midnight, am in the US). Ordinarily it's not bad but I just have this feeling that tonight's going to be one of those long nights. I have them every so often - even though I take melatonin and a sleeping tablet (ambien) I just don't get sleepy. DH, on the other hand...oooh it boils my piss sometimes that he can just decide that it's time to sleep, lie down and...sleep. I've been insomniac so long that I have no idea what it's like to be able to do that.

Anyhow, I figured since I'm going to be up a while I'll put a pizza in the oven. Must have sustenance for the Long Dark Night of the Soul! grin

Still awake here. My son is snoring away & maybe that's partly why I can't sleep? Watching the Gavin & Stacey Christmas Special whilst eating cheese on toast. Hungry!

Crankycunt Mon 08-Feb-16 01:30:12

I can't sleep either. I swear it's something to do with the moon. I'm like this every month for a couple of days.

I'm going to go make marmite on toast, hopefully that'll help me sleep.
