Who Needs Sleep?

Filed under: Uncategorized — by lhoham @ 7:57 pm

I have this song stuck in my head….by the Barenaked Ladies…Who Needs Sleep. Is that even what it’s called….

“…Who needs sleep? No you’re never gonna get it. Who needs sleep? Tell me what’s that for. Who needs sleep…yeah…this guy’s been awake since the Second World War.” Something like that….that’s probably not a very good transcription. πŸ™‚

I just haven’t been sleeping well since Friday night. I’m so tired. Things always look gloomy when one is so tired. I’m trying Tylenol PM, but it’s not helping. I’m hoping to get something better at my next appointment.

But really – who needs sleep?

Check out a You Tube video of it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJI0w9Y40zM



  1. That is a good motto to live to know that things are going to change for you. I miss my dear friend sleep but I probably won’t get a good night sleep for another 18 years. I hope you can get something better maybe something like Ambien. That is what they gave me in the hospital when I was on bed rest. Rest up while you can, cause things are really going to change. (For the bettter, I might add).

  2. This is the baby’s way of preparing you for all those sleepless nights. Enjoy them. It doesn’t get better until they are all grown up. πŸ™‚

  3. You’re almost there!

    I’ve been thinking about maybe asking for something at my next appointment, too. I have 15 weeks to go and can’t sleep any later than 3am no matter when I go to bed.

  4. Oh Alyssa that’s awful!! I toss and turn much of the night each night. I brought it up at my last appointment on Monday and they were none too concerned… 😦 She said “it’s normal for this time in pregnancy.” Yikes! I’ve been taking tylenol PM each night which helps some. Part of my theory is that I’m so achy it’s hard to sleep – the tylenol helps some!

    I’d be upfront with them if I were you – since my beating around the bush did nothing for me! LOL.

    I did nap today – aaaaahhhhhh it was amazing. I got up early so I needed a few extra zzz’s. πŸ™‚
