Last time you woke up in the middle of the night, and why

When was the last time your sleep was interrupted, and why?

I wake up in the middle of the night every night! Usually to take a pee, sometimes because I just had a weird or bad dream. Sometimes street noise, like a police siren, wakes me up. On the best of days, I'm a light sleeper.

Re: Last time you woke up in the middle of the night, and why

I wake up all the time for various reasons. I never wake up to piss, but if something wakes me up I can't get back to sleep unless I piss. Must be some kinda Pavolian thing. Like no matter how long a movie is, pissing is the furthest thing from my mind. When a movie is over, no matter how short it was, I suddenly need to piss bad. Conditioned reflex?
If I fall asleep listening to a cd or watching a movie I wake up immediately when it ends. Like my sleep is in synch/rhythm with the audio and the interruption wakes me.

I always wake up in the middle of the night with a need to pee. Dammit.

Almost every night to pee. Once in a great while for a strange sound or some other reason, but usually I'm a pretty sound sleeper outside of my bladder.

Where's the "pet or family member leaping onto the bed" option?

My son is 5 1/2 years old. He often wakes up in the middle of the night (sometimes more than once) and won't go back to sleep unless someone is in his room with him. Fortunately for me, he usually insists on mommy watching him.

Re: Last time you woke up in the middle of the night, and why

I have the gift of being able to sleep soundly. My wife doesn't like that at times. I think she's just envious.

I chose the "go to the bathroom" option, but it's been a long time since that's happened.

I wake up in the middle of the night almost every night to check what is happening on Otterville.

Maybe we're just drinking the recommended 8-10 glasses of water per day.

if your only drinking the recommended amount you shouldn't have the urge during the sleep cycle unless you wake up for something else. Besides, the body actually produces less urine during the sleep cycle.

You should probably tell that fool to crawl to the kitchen.

I drink A LOT more than 8-10 glasses of water a day. Drinking 8 8-oz glasses is 64 ounces a day, which really isn't all that much honestly. I drink about double that.

I don't wake up in the middle of the night having to pee. I actually did use to do that back when I was very overweight and pre-diabetic. I lost the weight and got my blood sugar under control, and I don't wake up having to pee anymore. Too frequent urination, and especially frequent nocturnal urination, is one of the signs of high blood sugar. It's also a potential sign of urinary tract infections and/or prostate problems. You should probably get that checked out if you are waking up having to pee often.
