Peri - Waking up at sparrow's fart!

Posted , 8 users are following.

Hey ladies. Any suggestions on this one?

I'm waking up EVERY MORNING way before the alarm - too early to start charging around the house (not that I have the energy to). I have blinds, blackout curtains and another blackout blind, so the room is as dark as a cow's insides. But I still wake up. As soon as I stir, the cat thinks it's time to get up, so he sings the song of his people outside the bedroom door - even if it's 5am, he really couldn't give a toss. So my 'Might get back to sleep, if I'm lucky' turns into me rolling about like a burrito until I finally get back to sleep, 5 minutes before the alarm kicks off.

I've no idea what the chuff is waking me up every day, but it's sure as hell pi$$ing me off now!

    are you hot at all when you wake up?

    i wake up at 3 and don't get back to sleep until 5 on a regular basis. i have to take something to help me sleep a couple of nights a week to try and get a full nights sleep . i am usually hot when i wake up. sometimes sweating, sometimes not. I don't what causes it but i know it is common.

      I woke up hot this morning after only 5 hours sleep, so I'm stripping down the bedding to see if that works. I already have a fan on throughout the night, pointed at the bed.

      They don't tell you any of this, do they?
