Fitbit tells me the most ridiculous things about my life.
I walk up to eight miles a day in my own house. Go up and down twelve flights of stairs, again in my house.
The best thing Fitbit tells me is about my sleep. It’s like pure justification for feeling tired and bleary.
It shows I have a lot of awake times at night. Not just a lot but a whole lot of awake times.
For example on Friday night I was laying in bed for 7 hours and 35 minutes. I woke up 31 times.
THIRTY ONE TIMES.
That’s not a random bad night either. Every night is like that. There are no nights where I wake up less than 20 times.
Why do I wake up that many times?
I sleep (if you can call it that) squished between Henry and my snoring, restless husband. Henry wakes up and wants to nurse over and over. Tyler snores, makes weird abrupt air blowing noises, and flops around like a dying fish.
I am so tired.
I’ve tried sleeping in a different bed than Henry. He still wakes up crying repeatedly. Honestly I’m not too distressed by this because both of the girls started sleeping much better once their two year molars were through. Henry has all of his teeth already except for those molars, so I know they’re next and better sleep is on the horizon!
Tyler is doing a sleep study in February. If they say he’s normal I may just die. Or more logically banish him to sleep in another room. His doctor said he has very large tonsils. I think those are the problem.
I long for hours of solid sleep without interruption. I feel so worn down, even more exhausted each morning than I was the night before. It’s ridiculous.
At least now I have Fitbit to justify it. Turns out I feel like I barely get any solid sleep because it’s true, I barely get any relaxing sleep. I am constantly being jolted awake.
