Still Not Sleeping Through the Night

It pretty much goes like this, EVERY NIGHT:

I stop drinking all liquids at 9:00.
I get home from school at around 10:30
I visit the toilet one last time
and then I go to bed anywhere from 11:30 to 12

…then I wake up at 3:00 to pee. EVERY NIGHT.
It started when I was pregnant. and I had Berlyn, in tiny fetus form, pressing on my inside parts, forcing me to use the bathroom all the time! This was not fun, but I understood it. I expected it. 3 to 4 times a night in my last trimester, I was waking up to pee, and sometimes to fart.

Then she was born and the waking me up continued, but this time it was to scream as loud as she could until mommy’s ears bled.

But then Berlyn slept through the night at an impressive age, yet I still woke up to pump my breast milk at 4 in the morning, because if I didn’t I drastically lost my supply.

Now I don’t have anymore milk to pump, I don’t have a infant demanding to be fed, and I sure as hell don’t have a fetus pushing on my inside parts. So what gives?? When is it my turn to sleep through the night?

this probably doesn’t make you feel any better, but i wake up EVERY night between 3:00 and 4:00 to pee and feed my cat who thinks the middle of the night is “play” time. half the time i find my husband sound asleep on the couch, but without fail – EVERY night i gotta go – sometimes twice. and i’ve tried cutting off liquids after like 7:00 and for some reason it doesn’t work.

half the time i feel like i should call that number from the “over-active bladder” commercial. “gotta go, gotta go, gotta go right now!” ha!!
