with both of my daughters I didn’t sleep. Laboured through the night. Number one started at 7:30pm and she was born 24 hours later, no sleep. Number two started at 9ish am and she was born at 4:12 am the next day ( active labour was only 3.5 ours so it wasn’t too bad). I got no sleep with either and I still had 2 natural, drug free births. 2 hours and 11 minutes pushing consecutively.
I have a horrible time going to sleep and I’m scared I will not have been to sleep yet and I will be so exhausted during everything and afterwards. I really hope if she comes on her own and I’m not induced that she comes during the day.
I went into labor at 4 am before I had fallen asleep! and had my son at 11:46 am so I was pretty exhausted and didn’t sleep until midnight that night and only for like an hour. I was so hyped up on adrenaline and so happy though that I barely could fall asleep.
