Sleep Deprived!

Hi everyone! I'm 8w0d and am having a awful time getting sleep these days. Also, this is my first pregnancy. For about 3 weeks now I wake up early in the morning and lay awake for about 2 hours before falling asleep again. I've read this is normal for some women. I've always heard women say how sleepy they were and how they could almost sleep all day! I so wish that were my problem. On the days I lose sleep, I have increased nausea. Anyone else losing sleep out there? If so, any tips on how to deal with it? Thanks!

Do you think it's from the excitement of being pregnant? If so, you should be able to sleep soon once the initial emotions wear off and you are used to the fact that you're pregnant.

Congratulations!!! This is my first pregnancy too, but I'm lurking from the 3rd tri. My sleep is disturbed every hour to hour and a half for one reason or another.
God is good all the time and His mercy endures at peace!

Hi, sorry I'm just now replying! I'm still not sleeping well, but have read up this issue and it has something to do with horomones. Not all women have this problem, but I guess it's something I'll be stuck with the entire time. I'm now exactly 15 weeks and I'm still have trouble. It seems to be getting worse also, so I'm just going with it for now. I'm not used to getting up in the middle of the night, but I guess I could get some chores done around the house if I cannot sleep. My Mom says my body is just getting me ready for the sleepless nights ahead when baby arrives. Hope all is well with you!
