12w1d - I'm...so...tired

Sorry I haven't updated again since last weekend's illness. The mastitis symptoms pretty much were gone by Sunday and I'll be finishing up the antibiotics soon. Part of me wishes I had not started them yet as I think I could have kicked it w/o them. Oh well, hindsight=20/20.

I'm hoping that this past week has been Tristan going thru a growth spurt and that it explains why he's suddenly sleeping so horribly at night again. We've got a pattern of going down at about 7:30-8:00 and then waking to eat at 12:00, 3:00, 5:00, 6:30... Very tiring, to say the least. Hubby let me sleep in this morning until 9am and it was heavenly.

We keep reminding ourselves over and over that it won't be like this forever and that he will eventually learn to sleep better. Until then, I'm gonna have to tough it out I guess. And on that note, good night.

I think 12 weeks is a common growth spurt week. Hang in there.

I could've written that sleep schedule. Usually Charlie sleeps from 8-12:30. This weeks? More like 8-10:30. It's wreaking havoc on my mood! Hopefully it's a growth spurt for both of us!

I'm with you on the crazy sleep schedule! It's nuts. Hope you are feeling better soon! Yikes!

Try to get some rest. Things will get better soon. Glad you are feeling better.

Hey Nickie - I hope you catch a break soon, too. PPD, thrush, mastitis - are the locusts next?! I'm right there with you on the tired part. I keep telling myself that it will get easier. Boy am I going to savor an uninterrupted night's sleep!
