Been waking very early due to depression (mid divorce from EA marriage), started taking ADs on Thursday and they say sleep can be disturbed - bloody marvellous.

I should probably get off the screen.

Also in Canada. I'm in BC, where are you Magnifimad?

fv45 it's a bugger isn't it?

Migraine earlier I slept off so now wide awake!

Hi OP. Am in Oz so middle of day here. Have you got a busy day tomorrow?

MagnifiMad Tue 17-May-16 03:01:30

echo I am in Ontario.

Sorry to hear about sleep disturbance from the ADs, OP, probably is better to put screens away...but easier said than done.

I'm awake. I have a job interview in the morning and I'm so nervous I can't go back to sleep!

Baconyum Tue 17-May-16 03:12:22

Loving that there's so many 'internationa' mumsnetters

In Singapore and not at work today so just chilling. 10.10am here. Would putting a favourite old film on and resting on the sofa work for you OP?

LittleHouseOnTheShelf Tue 17-May-16 03:14:15

just good luck, what's it for?

justkeeponsmiling Tue 17-May-16 03:16:21

Thank you! I work in adult nursing and want to swap to neonatal intensive care so I've done so much research into the post my brain has overloaded!!

nopel Tue 17-May-16 03:22:05

I'm awake. I have hideous pregnancy insomnia which is really getting me down. The worse but is it makes my HG come back, so I'm in for a day of puking tomorrow.

Good luck with the interview Just

justkeeponsmiling Tue 17-May-16 03:24:35

Thanks nopel . Poor you, that sounds awful sad

nopel Tue 17-May-16 03:28:49

Thanks. I'm 24 weeks now so getting used to it! Only 16 weeks more to go...

Is it easy to go from adult to neonatal nursing? I have a friend that's an nicu nurse, she loves it.

ChopsticksandChilliCrab Tue 17-May-16 03:33:17

Good luck just!

LittleHouseOnTheShelf Tue 17-May-16 03:35:17

A friend of mine is too, she also loves it.

OP do you have any relaxation CDs? I use the Paul McKenna app for "I can make you thin" on it there is an audio track he calls hypnotic trance that helps you follow his system. Anyway, some nights when I can't get back to sleep (have a 14wk old DD whom I'm up feeding currently) I listen to it purely to help me relax back into sleep. My mother swears by some relaxation one she bought years ago too. Perhaps you could try that? Sorry the ADs are affecting your sleep but I hope they're helping otherwise!

justkeeponsmiling good luck tomorrow! You'll be fab! Believe the job is yours smile

nopel I had a similar experience, the good news is all those symptoms disappear as soon as the little one arrives then you'll have you're little sweetheart. 16 weeks is a long enough time so just take it as easy as possible until then.

And yes, this thread does feel very international.

yep I've got one very active baby doing kung fu or disco in my tummy. 32 weeks and cannot sleep!

Whenwillwe3meetagain Tue 17-May-16 03:48:35

Sorry tmi but I have the runs and don't feel safe to go to sleep!! DS had this on Friday-I'm jealous he gets to wear w nappy, just what I need! confused

Hi everyone. I'm awake.

Got lots of parent worries on my mind on both sides of the family.

Also had a little cry as dad passed away in may 5 years ago this year.
