could you possibly switch the beds out for a while? put the aerobed in you guy’s room and out the normal one in the other room? Tongue Out

Oh no. I’m so sorry, babe. Darling Husband has been sleeping on the couch for a couple weeks now because I just can’t get comfortable with him in the bed and he can’t sleep because of my pregnancy snoring.

No advice really. I just wanted to say that I totally empathize and I’m so sorry. 🙁 It’ll all be over soon!

@heathaah:   heres another thing… could you try crating them at night? thats what i do with mine. they actually like going in there at night. it keeps them quiet so i dont have to hear them moving around and playing. It’s a big help.

@heathaah:  man that sucks! I think maybe your hubby could atleast try to train them… mine freaked out too the first couple of nights, but I started giving them a rawhide to chew on and just ignored the noise… (hard to do the first few nights) but in the end sooooo worth it! they go in no problem now. anyways, I don’t know your situation, just wish I could help… I hate sleep deprivation!!!

That really sucks. I’m not preggo. But I’ve been told that the insomnia thing is mother nature’s way of preparing you for all the nightly feedings and insomnia to come. Doesn’t make things any easier now, I know. But maybe that might ease your frustration a bit? Hope you feel better!

Just do what is the right thing for you. If he cannot understand it, just ignore him. He will get used to it…

From one pregnant pet owner to another, I’ll start by saying we have FOUR cats and TWO giant dogs, and I have a long time ago enacted a no-pets-in-the-bedroom rule for some of these very same reasons. Anyway, the solution is simple.

For the cats: Set up a room in the house away from your bedroom (where you won’t hear them cry) with their liter box, food and water. That’s where they should be sleeping from now on.

For the dogs: Crate them downstairs or in the basement and wear earplugs to bed if you can still hear them cry.

For Darling Husband: He sleeps on the aerobed from now on.

You and the baby getting a restful night’s sleep is WAY more important than the animals being comfortable, and you need to take a stand whoever likes it or not.

Oh man, I need my sleep and I’m not pregnant, so I really feel your pain. I would just set up the aerobed in the nursery for myself and not discuss it further. Your husband can either help you set it up, or just mind his own business. I understand that he is trying to help/protect you by not letting you sleep on it, but seriously – you need to sleep!

I have resorted to sleeping in our guest room when Darling Husband snores (or he goes himself).  Also, I have had crazy insomnia for 2 months, so my doctor OK’d 1/2 unisom every night.  I can now fall asleep much easier and when I get up to pee (2-3x a night) I can fall back asleep more easily.

Pregnancy sleep issues plain suck, sorry you are having them Undecided

@heathaah:  Just set it up and sleep on it in the middle of the night (even at 3am, it WILL be worth it) and he wakes up and finds you, say the pain was making you cry and you had no choice. He’ll see you’re rested and he’ll let you do it again,

Normally (like 99% of the time), I say communication, communication, communication. This time is different, you tried that and this is really important.

In this case it’s easier to ask forgiveness than to get permission.

Can you try waking him up everytime you are awaken? Maybe he’ll then start to understand how little sleep you are getting.

 

(I’m not in anyway experienced in this type of situation, so you may want to take my idea with a grain of salt.  I don’t know why he objects, but if it’s because he doesn’t really understand, maybe this will help.)
