[_______] right here.

I am fucking exhausted. DS has been waking at 5am for the last 2 weeks, often going back to sleep once one of us have got on the sofa bed with him.

I went to bed at 10. I slept til 530 am when DS woke up. DH had slept downstairs on the sofa bed with him, DS went back to sleep til 7am. I am exhausted and just want to sleep sad

Ywbu not to go and have a nap.

Exhaustion is a bitch. If you have time to have a sleep, do it.

I'm at work though NN The training room, and it's huge table are looking very appealing - which shows how fucking knackered I am sad

Oh sad sorry to hear that

How long before home time? Can you find some coffee to drink

5pm so just under 5 hours.

Have had coffee. No joy. Am feeling even more sleepy!

Fan blowing on you to stay awake?

Windows are open with a breeze. Have the radio on too.

I feel the same. When I woke up this morning, before work, I was planning on how I was going to finish at 4pm get home and just SLEEP. We had a 1 hour meeting and I was struggling to keep my eyes open.

Is he on a sofa bed all night?

How old is he?

cjt110 Fri 05-Aug-16 14:09:31

No NapQueen He is in his cot. We have previously tried sides off, which was ok but his wake ups because more frequent. He's 2 next week.

Sorry to be an unsympathetic cow but I don't see why you are so exhausted from sleeping 10pm-5.30am? That's 8.5 hours undisturbed sleep? More than enough for an average adult. My 5 month old DS is up every day at 5/5.30 too so I do understand but before I had him I was up at 6am most days for work so it's not so awful.

Me624 Fri 05-Aug-16 14:13:39

Sorry 7.5 hours sleep.

I sort of agree... I mean, by all means have a nap if you are able - big fan of naps, me - but I'm just a bit confused as to why 5am is doing you in that much. I'm not having a go, but you get more sleep than I do and my kids are much older!

Go somewhere private set 10 min alarm on phone. Close eyes. If when alarm goes you feel dreadful still have 10 more mins. No one will notice. I used to do this when heavily preggers and exhausted. Those 10 mins are way more restorative than you'd expect. Plus it feels quite mad men...

Me624 Worry I have an underlying health condition (underactive thyroid) which may be contributing (currently trialling alternating doses) but I feel awful. I think my sleep quality is crap, regardless of the quantity I have. I have a fitbit type watch and the results of my sleep patterns are surprising. One niht, whilst it reckons I had 2h30 mins deep sleep, 4h15 light sleep and was "awake" 3 times.

Me624 Fri 05-Aug-16 14:41:49

Oh I suspect that is definitely contributing then. Hope you get it sorted. Might be worth getting your iron levels checked too - I used to feel tired all the time and it turned out I was severely anaemic.

I have a check up with my GP in 6 weeks to check my thyroid levels. If all isnt well then I will be asking him to run every test possible whilst asking for a referral somewhere as I cant cope feeling this shitty.
