Ugh, I really don't know how the heck I'm going to be able to sleep tonite for this thing with all those things attached to me and most importantly, without my boyfriend next to me!! We've lived together for 4 years so this will be one of the first times I'll be sleeping without him sad    Anybody have any experiences to share with me?

It's weird going to sleep hooked up to just about everything in the room. They try to make you as comfortable as possible. Just make sure to use the bathroom BEFORE they hook you up otherwise you have to lug everything with you. It was one of the easier tests I've had to take. Bring loose jammies, you'll have wires attached everywhere, even your legs. It's not so bad once you lay down. The worst part was that they woke me up way to early, I could have used another hour of sleep.

I had one done a few years ago and had the best night's sleep I could remember. I was so bummed because I thought they'd miss something.

In the morning, as the lady was unhooking me, she asked me how I slept and I told her how I was so worried because it was the best sleep I'd had in ages. She told me that they couldn't tell if I was sleeping, my brain waves registered as awake for most of the night.

Good Luck.
