For a week I haven't been able to sleep more than 2.5 hours a night. I'm just totally wide awake and want to clean/ organize. Last time I was like this I was on the full dose if pred. Now, like then everyone told meno should just enjoy it. Um, no. It's annoying and sleep is still necessary.

Just wanted to vent to people who understand the feeling. Now, I think I'll go do something useful like organize a years worth of my daughter's baby photos. Lol.

Do you know if your having a boy or a girl?? I know when I was pregnant with my son I had heaps of energy for cleaning and thats all I wanted to do! I even painted my whole house inside too! Although I know you need to sleep, especially when pregnant, try and maybe take a few naps in between doing things, otherwise you are going to be exhausted by the time the baby comes along!!
Good luck!

Maybe that's it. Boy this time. I did not feel like this (even two weeks after my due date) with my daughter. Hmm... Doesn't pred have effects like some male hormone or something?? Might explain the similarity.

when I first started my pred, my first thought was, no wonder they made steroids illegal in sports, thank god for my sleepmed's, I'm sorry for you with being preg, you can't take med's, I'm not sorry your preg, but you know what i mean.
I just finished the taper thing with pred, now I'm stablized at 15mg per day and 50mg imuran x 3. but I have noticed I'm not as hiper as I was, so I much be getting used to that dose, but still plenty of energy, but I am high energy type of person.
