When was the last time you slept at least 12 hours?

We had the insomnia thread.

Now let's talk about the last time you slept a lot (at least 12 hours).

A few months ago, I sprained my leg and had been tired in general. I went to bed early on a Friday (maybe 9) and woke up at 1pm. I got out of bed at 4pm, got something to eat, and was asleep a few hours later. That was a good weekend.

Re: When was the last time you slept at least 12 hours?

I slept almost 11 hours last Saturday, and I have no idea why (yeah, not quite qualifying for the "12" in the thread)!

Probably a couple years ago when I was sick. And does surgery count? Cos the stuff I got probably had me out for longer than that!

Before I had kids, for sure, and it probably wont happen again at least until they're teenagers and they want to sleep in too. They're currently 3 and 2.

I have never been able to sleep that long, even when I was up for 36 hrs. I am lucky to sleep 7 hrs and am jealous of those that can sleep 10 hrs or more.

Does that include not getting up to pee?

If I ever slept 12 hours, it was back when I was still young and partying. Ah, good times, good times.

A couple of months ago when I had a stomach virus.
Within those 12+ hours I did have to get up to run to the bathroom every couple of hours.

Not that long ago. Probably within a few weeks/months. Obviously I don't pay that much attention to it when it happens.

Re: When was the last time you slept at least 12 hours?

Just a few weeks ago. I was running on little sleep and it was a Friday. I was just beat so I fell asleep on the couch around 7 and got out of bed at 9 the next morning. I did wake up in the middle of the night to move from couch to bed though, so it wasn't straight sleep.

Re: When was the last time you slept at least 12 hours?

The wife and young children are off to the beach for a week and I'll join them about half way through due to work. While I have the house to myself I plan on a few 12 hour nights. Still, since having youngins, my body has been conditioned to wake up around 6am regardless of whether they're here or not. That kind of sucks.

Re: When was the last time you slept at least 12 hours?

I wish I could do this! However I think I could do this if I were to go to sleep at say 7pm and wake up at 9am. My body just can't sleep past the late morning (10am + hours).

I know people who could sleep until 1pm.. if I go to bed at say 4am, I'm lucky if I could sleep until 10am.

Last time I did this was due to jet lag after flying across the Pacific, back to the US.

Just today, as a matter of fact. Jet lag from a long trip. Went to bed at 9pm and got up around 10am this morning. In this heat, it helped.

Sometimes on a Friday evening if I take a xanax before going to bed to really get a good sleep, I'll go 12 hours. Now that I'm unemployed I generally sleep 10+ hours a night. Good times.
