Help please

I am so tired and foggy headed all the time. What is with that? I'm mid cycle so it isn't PMS.  I am literally struggling to keep my eyes open.

I tend to put everything down to having kids and being old but this is really starting to mess with my mo jo! I have a ton of work to do and all I want is to curl up in bed and sleep.

I am wiped all day and then can't sleep at night. Takes hours to fall asleep. I am off rhythm for sure.

But what to do?

Any ideas? 


  1. sounds like a visit to the doc for some bloodwork might be in order? hope its an easy fix:)

  2. I would definitely get some bloodwork done. I'm tired from work and kids, too, but I definitely sleep at night. Sounds like something might be a bit off for you, and worth looking into. Hope it gets cleared up soon!

  3. Sleeplessness is a killer. I'm 7 1/2 mos post partum and even though, if you add up all the hours I sleep (I pass out early, but them am awoken countless times to do pacifier retrieval) I get enough hours of sleep, that they are not consecutive is KILLING me, too.

    I have no advice. Blood work, yes. Consistent bedtime and sleep routine (including no screen time of any sort 1 hr prior), make sure your room is dark enough, and cool enough. Routine, routine, routine, just like with an infant :)

    I have had many friends extoll the virtue of melatonin, so much that I think I will give it a whirl. Now, if only it could retrieve baby's paci.
