Waking up in the middle of the night

Anyone else have this problem?

I seem to suffer the worst when DH is away. I wake up at every little pin drop.

If he is home, I dont wake up often but do find myself restless if I had a hard workout at the gym.

jenna - they actually say it's better to workout in the morning because hard cardio gets ur heartrate & metabolism going, which can lead to..well..not a good nights sleep. it keeps u energized instead of putting ur body in rest mode...maybe try having some sort of caffeine free herbal tea & giving urself some winddown time before bed..sleepytime makes really good chamomile or peppermint..there's all different flavors.. i used to do this when i was at school & would have hardcore danceclasses till late at night.. it would help my body relax..

also - i too have a hard time even falling alseep when dh isn't there! it's not a fear or anything, i just don't. i think it's just being used to someone else's presence in bed or something.. even if he stays up late playing video games in the living room or something i find it difficult. it'll take me forever to actually fall asleep, and then i'll wake up a billion times throughout the night.

All of the time. It is so frustrating. I wake up several times a night and it’s every night. I never have an uninterrupted sleep.

recently, yes!!! i never had this problem until the past couple of months, I used to sleep right through Chat Icon i think its work related stress...

also, i have been trying to drink a lot more water so I have been waking up 1-2 times per night go to the bathroom... I am finding that sleeping with a window open (keeping the room cooler) has helped some!

I think it might have to do with stress that he's away. When my mind is occuppied about something, I don't sleep well. It doesn't have to be anything bad, but say I need to get up early for something the next day, I'll keep waking up every hour to make sure I didn't over sleep.

I never used to wake up. Now, DH wakes up one or two times to use the bathroom and inadvertently wakes me up. It is so annoying!

Once in awhile - usually if I'm really stressed or really excited.

Sometimes I will go through a funk where it's hard for me to fall asleep.... and 100% of the time it's because of work stress Chat Icon TOTALLY NOT WORTH IT! Chat Icon

I wake up to go to the bathroom some nights... which is so annoying... but otherwise I usually sleep through the night.

Re: Waking up in the middle of the night

I have been waking up every night...and I'm actually not able to really fall asleep and I find myself waking up earlier and earlier...I know it has a lot to do with stress but also I find that I get hot at night even if the heat isnt on and I cant sleep

Re: Waking up in the middle of the night

Since I've been laid off I cannot sleep. At least once a week I find myself awake for over 24 hours straight! Chat Icon

I found this organic tea called "Nighty, night" It's in the organic section of most supermarkets. I just tried this last night, I had 2 8oz cups (each cup made with it's own tea bag) and I slept like a baby!!!!!

I highly recommend this tea!
