Hey girls! This is my problem here...

I'm 7 weeks pregnant with (so far) twins. EVERYONE told me that during pregnancy, were tired all the time and sleeping a lot.
I woke up early to go to work, bed time by 11 pm, woke up around 2.30 am, 5 am and again at 6.30 am to go to work. Of course, at 5 am I HAVE to go to the bathroom.
Is this normal? Anyone else have/had this issue?
Thanks!

Completely normal! Wait til later on in your pregnancy - it gets worse!
I am currently 39 weeks and awake every two hours from bed at 9pm til get up at 6:30am! LOL

I've been struggling with sleep my entire pregnancy...I just have 4 weeks to go...and the only positive I can share, you seem to get used to it. I'm totally productive on the 4 hours of sleep I'm probably getting a night, which wasn't the case at all before I got pregnant. All of my friends love to tell me it's prepping me for baby...I guess I can't disagree. I recently splurged and got the Boppy Mommy Pillow (about $50) and it is helping more than a regular body pillow did. Best of luck to you...so exciting...twins! :)

my theory. the lack of sleep we get when pregnant, prepares us for the lack of sleep when the little one is born.

Controversial is fine...every pregnancy is completely different. Good for you! I pee every 10 minutes, hahaha

I've never been that bad! Wow! Sorry for being controversial from all your feedback. It seems normal upon reading all the other posts, maybe I didn't pee enough, haha.

I'll be 30 weeks Wednesday and for the last month the sleeping issues have gotten worse. I may get an hour and a half to 4 hours (if I'm lucky) of sleep a day. SO yes...it get's much worse. lol
