You're still not use to write your dreams, so you forget.
Make an intention before going to sleep. Like: "When i wake up i will write my dream." In time, you'll get use to it and don't need to make that intention.

I don't sit down and write essay length dreams in my dream journal in the middle of the night. Just scribble some key words down on a piece of paper beside your bed. You don't even have to get up. It's amazing how five to ten words can help jog your memory in the morning. Then you can use those words to help write out your dream in full detail in the morning.

I bought myself a cheap voice recorder and just talk what I remember, and back to sleep, that all in the dark. During the day I write the dreams in my journal. :)

When you wake up just think through your dreams. That's what I do when I don't write my dreams. Sometimes I get up think, through my dreams, then go eat breakfast and write dreams down.

My tip to feeling like that would be to do a quick reality check at that time before you roll over and go back to sleep, pinch nose.. can you still breathe?. You may not even be properly awake! making it near impossible to make yourself write in a journal or follow throu with what you are wanting to do.
