I had been told to sleep when the baby sleeps, but I couldnt. I survived on very little sleep and my house was pristine, I would be up ironing at 4 in the morning and I thought I was OK. From that point forward things got worse. Even when I managed to get to sleep the slightest sound from him had me wide awake and then it took hours to get back to sleep. Then the crazy set in. I would stay awake, sure that the moment I fell asleep he would have me awake and that it was easier to just stay awake, yes, stay awake. It didn’t solve my insomnia, but it did give me tools to help cope. Not having an alarm with light up numbers or a clock that ticks and also shutting doors. I wish I could cope with an eye mask, but it just bugs me. Ensure your bedroom is not too hot or too cold, scientists recommend just over 18C (65F). Avoid Caffeine. Caffeine can stay in the blood stream for 12 hours. I make sure that my last cup of tea or any drink with caffeine in is at 4pm. This works for me. Even green tea has caffeine in. Beware there is caffeine in things that you would never guess, Coca Cola do a fab caffeine counter. Research has shown that lavender helps improve the quality of sleep. I have been using a Lumie Bodyclock Iris and love it. The Iris is unique as it combines the benefits of a gradual sunset and sunrise with aromatherapy diffusion.
With Union victory at Five Forks, General Lee desperately shifted troops to the west to protect the Southside Railroad. Grant, realizing that Lee was thinning his lines around Petersburg and Richmond to protect the railroad, ordered a general assault against the Confederate fortifications. The VI Corps achieved a major breakthrough up the Boydton Plank Road. If I can I shall withdraw to-night north of the Appomattox, and, if possible, it will be better to withdraw the whole line to-night from James River. The II Corps to the left of the VI Corps and the XXIV Corps to the right of the VI Corps also achieved breakthroughs. The siege of Petersburg and Richmond was at an end as Lee moved his army out of his lines and began the march to the west that would end at Appomattox Court House. Here is General Longstreet’s account of the Third Battle of Petersburg in his memoirs: General Grant had ordered assault for four o’clock, but it was near five before there was light enough for the men to see their way across the line and over the... Crossing the Appomattox, we rode through the streets of Petersburg for General Lee’s head-quarters, some miles farther west. As no part of the command had reached the station when we passed, orders were left for the detachments to march as soon as they landed. Before the first rays of morning we found general head-quarters.
