A new day has dawned…

and I witnessed it.  Yip-frickin-ee.

This has become the weekend of no sleep, this isn’t how it’s supposed to work.  We finally have an Rx to counter the night wakings, it’s supposed to be better!  *sigh*  Monkey’s internal sleep-clock hasn’t gotten the memo though.  Even with the new Rx he’s still waking around 3 in the morning and staying awake for at least an hour.  You know what happens when I get woken up at 3 AM?  I stay awake!  Ugh!

So, here I am, 3 hours after the initial wake up, ready for bed.  Monkey should be up, bright-eyed and ready for another day of excitement in … oh, let’s say 20 minutes … or roughly the exact moment I doze off again…

    Sorry!! The sleep issues suck! I thought we had dodged the sleep bullet for a little while, only to find out that Josh was hearing him before he went to bed. So even though he never gets out of bed, he wasn’t getting good sleep. Every once in a while he gets up at 2 and is up for the day. I get very cranky. I feel your sleepless pain! Hopefully it will get better.

    Ugh, sorry. After I spent most of our FX clinic visit talking about sleep issues our son started sleeping much better! He still wakes up one or twice a night once or twice a week but it’s much more clear now that it was/is reflux bothering him which seems to have improved a lot as he has gotten bigger. But given your inability to fall back to sleep, I have to ask whether you can sleep somewhere else and let Duhdee handle these wakeups? Of course you still need Monkey well rested for school though. Good luck for your first day!

    Duhdee doesn’t do night wake ups, he might get up initially or he might not…HE sleeps well, at least!

    Hate the sleep issues. For the most part we’re past them now. Praying that Benjamin doesn’t ever start with it. I feel your pain as well. I DO NOT wake up well before at least 8 hours of sleep!!
