I don't have LOs yet, but I can't ever recall a night, ever, in my adult life that I have slept right through from evening to waking.. Regardless of whether i'm sleeping alone / in quiet etc.. I always wake up, normally want a drink, and often the loo (and that was pre pregnancy!)
Is this normal? Do you / have you / could you?
H seems to do so most nights (unless I wake him to roll over from his snoring ) and friends seem to manage it too..

I'm such a heavy sleeper. I normally fall asleep 10 minutes after I hit the pillow and don't wake up until either my alarm goes off or my H or E wakes me.

The other night my H went out, he didn't take any keys and wasn't going to be long, i was exhausted so I left the front door unblocked and went to bed about 11.30.
He came in about 12 (the front door is right by my room) and I didn't hear him come in, get undressed or anything. I only woke up when he got in bed next to me and cuddled up to me!
That worries me!!

I don't usually wake up in the night. Don't hate me, but even now I sleep through almost every night!
However, I find getting to sleep a real pain. I cannot nap in the day, if it's even 10 minutes then I won't get to sleep for ages at night even if I'm absolutely knackered.
I have a wee, go to bed and then feel I need to wee again half an hour later. It's definitely psychological as I'll then visit the loo and produce the most pathetic tiny amount of wee! H falls asleep as soon as he wants to and it riles me up something proper. Not fair!

I only wake up if Ned wakes me tbh, even now I'm 21 weeks with number 2 I still tend to sleep through unless I'm overtired or my SPD is particularly bad.

No never, on average I get up to wee 3 times a night, even when drunk/ill I aklways have to pee!

Pre children I always slept through, now I do too but get up much earlier, my h gets nosebleeds sometimes and I'm totally oblivious to it in the morning

i'm a very light sleeper and wake up every night even pre M and pregnancy i always woke up even if it was only for 5 minutes.
05/12/2012 at 11:38
not very often.

I used to most of the time. Since having F though, I do wake a few times for whatever reason.

I am so, terribly jealous of those who can / could sleep through!!

I wake up repeatedly in the night and struggle getting to sleep to begin with but its linked to my M.E.

I used to and still do if Little Miss doesn't wake (she's going through a phase of waking up at 3am)
I slept really well when pregnant. The night before my section (in hospital) I had a full 6 hours sleep
05/12/2012 at 16:57
Before pregnancy I slept through anything. Having said that I can still sleep through two waking toddlers at times when I'm shattered.

Not always great getting to sleep but one i am asleep I used to stay asleep- now I get off to sleep ok most nights but wake every hour hour and half to turn over due to hip pain...

Once I'm asleep in asleep but it can take upto 3 hours for me to actually fall asleep even if I'm exhausted.

I almost never wake up in the night. I can fall asleep anywhere too, and little wakes me. If I do wake I can nearly always fall asleep again really easily. Drives H mad as he is totally opposite.
05/12/2012 at 18:36
Always. Once my head hits the pillow I'm out until my alarm goes off.

I love my sleep, and yes given the chance I sleep all night, A usually has other idea's though. We have upgraded to a super king bed, which is fab, I don't feel H moving and I get my own space to sleep. We live in the country, with hardly any traffic noise and no outside lighting, do get the owls hooting something which can wake me, but I soon go back to sleep.

I pretty much always wake at some point, either h's snoring or I can hear kids talking in their sleep-plus my son STILL gets up at some point most nights for the toilet or a bad dream etc so I think I'm programmed to always be on alert!!x
