Biphasic Sleeping

Friday, December 29, 2006


For the first time since I started biphasic sleeping, I overslept-on accident. Yes, I've overslept on purpose-decided I didn't really need to get up when the alarm went off, but last night, I didn't even hear the alarm. That is very unlike me. Ever since I had the babies, I've been a fairly light sleeper.
I have been setting my cell phone alarm rather than the bedroom alarm because it is a bit quieter, less intrusive to my sleep, and closer when it goes off. I've been doing this for over a week, without any problems. Last night, I was supposed to get up around 12:45am. Josh came in around 2, asking me what was going on. I said I was just waking up-I had heard the alarm about 2 minutes before he came in. He then told me the time-I had been hitting snooze that whole time! I guess the fact that I can't see the time as well on the cell phone made it easier for me to oversleep.
Luckily, it wasn't the alarm for the morning, though I doubt I'd oversleep that one. Of course, that is what I thought about the cell phone alarm...
I ended up just sleeping through the night. Well, that had been my plan until Keira woke up around 3:30. I guess the gods wanted me to sleep biphasically last night after all.


  • God you are good at this! Although it sounds like Josh never sleeps!!

    Maybe my NY resolution should be to be more disciplined!

  • OK, so new year and an attempt at a new years resolution - biphasic sleeping.

    I have had my first attempt tonight - had a nap just before 8 (as Sean and Ellen went to the movies), then got up and watched Third Watch, did my new exercise dvd (thanks kids) and now I am not tired, so I am procrastinating online. I have to get up for work, so it will soon be shower and bed time.

    So far so good. Not sure it was the most exciting way to spend a kid free night though!

  • He DOESN'T sleep much! Last night, he got into bed around 3:00 (just as I was in the middle of an episode of 24-he made me turn it off!!). Keira got up less than an hour later. He got back into bed around 6:00. She's been a lot worse lately-like she is OVERtired and can't sleep. Anyway, I hope that Night sleeps in. Poor Josh!
