Re: Sleep Poll

  • Do you have trouble sleeping at night? It depends.  I go through phases.  Sometimes I will lay in bed for 4 hours before I fall asleep and other times I don't even remember my head hitting the pillow before I'm out. Regardless of how easy it was to fall asleep, I wake up 5-10 times each night. 

    How many times do you wake up to use the bathroom? 0

    Do you take anything to help you sleep? When I need it, I will take an Equate brand sleeping pill.

    Any sleepwalkers in your family? My sister and I are big time sleepwalkers and sleeptalkers.  H tells me I talk all night long.  My dad sleepwalked pretty bad too.

    What's your bedtime routine? I always take my showers at night, dry my hair, pee, and then go to bed. 

    What time do you go to bed and wake up usually? I go to bed at 10, fall asleep whenever it happens, and wake up at 6:30.

  • I will add that my current sleeping patterns have less of an effect on my life then when I couldn't sleep before. Before, I would be miserable all day. Now, I just seem to be okay with it.
  • Do you have trouble sleeping at night? Not usually. Most nights, once I decide to sleep, I'm asleep within just a few minutes. Sometimes I have "Sunday night insomnia," meaning, I feel like the sooner I fall asleep, the sooner it's Monday!

    How many times do you wake up to use the bathroom? Once, maybe.

    Do you take anything to help you sleep? Not usually. There was a time when H was in law school and I would be home alone a lot, and had a hard time falling asleep, so I had some Unisom on hand. Haven't used it in years.

    Any sleepwalkers in your family? Both my sister and me did this quite a bit growing up. I would have entire conversations with my mom. This continued through just about a year and a half ago. I don't believe I have sleepwalked after moving in this house. I also used to have night terrors as an adult, and haven't had them since I moved here, either. It's really strange.

    What's your bedtime routine? Brush, floss teeth, change into whatever I'm wearing (if necessary), watch a little American Dad or Family Guy on Adult Swim, then sleep. I sometimes fall asleep watching a show. I find the white noise comforting (leftover habit from living alone for awhile). H and I rarely go to bed at the same time.

    What time do you go to bed and wake up usually? Weeknights, I'm usually asleep by 10, up at 5:45. Weekends, sometimes I'll stay up a little later, or a lot later if we're doing something (like tonight I have a bday party to go to), but am up by 7 or 8 at the latest.

  • Do you have trouble sleeping at night?

    Sometimes. It seems when I do have trouble, I have trouble several nights in a row. And, it also depends on what's been going on during the day. Typically, I can pop some Tylenol PM or Advil PM and it makes it so much easier.

    How many times do you wake up to use the bathroom?

    Usually, none.

    Do you take anything to help you sleep?

    The occasional Tylenol/Advil PM.

    Any sleepwalkers in your family?

    I don't think so.

    What's your bedtime routine?

    I usually head to bed around 10ish. Brush my teeth, wash my face, crash out.

    What time do you go to bed and wake up usually?

    To bed around 10... wake up around 6.

  • Do you have trouble sleeping at night?  Normally I don't, but I haven't had a full nights sleep without waking up since probably November.  

    How many times do you wake up to use the bathroom?  Usually 0, sometimes once.

    Do you take anything to help you sleep?  Nope

    Any sleepwalkers in your family?  My uncle and my sister.  My uncle sleep-walked to the neighbor's house once, and my sister use to wake up in the closet screaming for my mom.  Freaked my mom out every time.  She would also have conversations with you while she was asleep.  I talked in my sleep when I was younger (and DH says I've started doing that recently), but no sleep walking for me.

    What's your bedtime routine?  Take my contacts out, take my vitamins, brush my teeth.

    What time do you go to bed and wake up usually?  In bed around 10:00-10:30, then up at 5:15-5:30.  The exception would be a few months ago when I was asleep by 8:00 ;)

    What's your bedtime routine?  Take the dog out, set the alarm, lock bedroom door, turn on fan, contacts out, brush teeth, wash and lotion face, remove all clothing except for socks and underpants, pray, sleep.  :)

    What time do you go to bed and wake up usually?  DH likes to "go to bed" early but we watch TV in bed for like an hour... I probably go to sleep around 10:30.  He wakes up at 6, gives me a kiss, and I fall back asleep while he's getting ready.  He takes the dog out around 6:30 when he leaves, and she comes back in bed when she's done... I wake up for good around 7 but I don't set an alarm or anything.  Just depends on when I need to be working though... sometimes I'll sleep in till 7:30.

  • Do you have trouble sleeping at night? Yes. I've battled with horrible insomnia for years. A lot of it is anxiety-related (my mind does not "shut off" at night and I just get a little more hyper at night). I describe it as feeling as if I think each tomorrow will be Christmas morning - the type of anxiety that keeps me up.

  • Do you have trouble sleeping at night? During the week, no. During the weekend, yes [which is why I'm answering this poll at 1am].

    How many times do you wake up to use the bathroom? Maybe once. Most nights, I don't.

    Do you take anything to help you sleep? Nope. I'll consider it once H and I are in CO together...but with it being just me and JJ, I'm too afraid to take sleeping meds and sleep through an emergency of some sort. Being a light sleeper allows me to make sure JJ's OK, especially since we've been dealing with breathing issues.

    Any sleepwalkers in your family? Nope.

    What's your bedtime routine? During the week, it's the same as JJ's: we change, brush our teeth, read a book and crash. During the weekend, I can usually stay up a few more hours after he falls asleep...so I use that time to catch up on things. Then I watch some SportsCenter, read or write in my journal, talk to H and fall asleep.

    What time do you go to bed and wake up usually? During the week: Usually up by 6:30am; out by 9:30pm. During the weekend: Usually up by 7:30am [sometimes 8am if JJ sleeps in]; out by midnight or 1am.
