It's not just you! Dh thinks it's more important to get more sleep as he has to go to work. I have to drive our 3 children around every day and personally I think it'd be worse if I fall asleep at the wheel than him at his desk. Yes he needs the job to pay the mortgage blah blah but that's no use if we're dead!

I feel exactly the same on an almost daily basis! Definitely not where i want to be, but where i end up as a result of full time job, incompetent DH and non-sleeping DD.

I could have wrote the exact same post. No answers I'm afraid but hope you get some rest soon.

Same here. Tonight DH went to bed mega early and I stayed up. Mainly because I wanted time alone. DS woke 5 minutes after I got into bed. DH stirred so I told him I was leaving it 5 minutes then I'd feed him. I did, and like every other time DH snored through it. Put DS down. He woke again. DH "are you getting him or not. You said you would 5 minutes ago ". Me: FFS I've just bloody fed him. You slept through it.

Cue DH then accusing me of competitive tiredness because I mentioned that he always snored his way through feeds. And on and on it goes.
