Third trimester sleepless nights!

So I'm in my last few weeks of pregnancy and my husband is a very deep sleeper and keeps waking me up early morning of the hours (not on purpose) but by constantly moving and coming onto my pillow! I know I sound so horrible but I find it so hard to fall asleep again confused

I'm with you! 31+4 and if it isn't dhs snoring it is my need to pee. It's so disheartening when I end up waking up every 2 hours!

I'm 34wks and always waking up to pee and sometimes find it so hard to go back to sleep. Then my partners alarm at 6 hmm then I get up and get sorted for my long day ahead. It's so tiring

If you have space can one of you sleep in a different room? Me and my dp have just done this and its worked wonders!

For us it was more me disturbing him with constant moaning in pain every time I turned over and snoring but he would then disturb me as he tossed and turned trying to get back to sleep.

This way we both get our space - though worth mentioning he does come back to bed every morning with coffee so it at least feels like we've spent the night together and you do have to make an effort to maintain 'intimacy'.

Another one who has relegated dh to spare room - under guise of bug-avoidance (he has a cold) but actually at 39 weeks I am better off on my own. I'd get tetchy if woken too, given sleep is at a premium now.

I've given up for the night already. I seriously don't know how I'm managing to work full time teaching 30 4-7 year old with this miserable cold/ insomnia/ sickness going on. confused

I'm with you ladies hats off to all of us.
And flowers and chocolate and brew

35 weeks and I wake several times a night to pee or simply rolling over is a herculean effort! DH snoring makes me stabby.

I figure it's just training for newborn hours.

29+3 and I'm awake every night from 3.30am. Yay.

37+3 and 4:30 seems to be my new time to get up. Toast, brew, Brixton hicks and some rubbish tv brew good morning ladies smile

Wait till baby is here. Then you'll really struggle to sleep...

Yep Alpen yoghurt, banana and peppermint tea with rubbish repeating news bulletins on loop.
Morning all

I actually slept ok last night. Think it was sheer exhaustion after the previous two being so awful.

I wake myself up everytime I turn over with the pain from my SPD. I can't remember the last full night of sleep I had.

Being woken up by a baby is different than not being able to sleep properly ime, and at least the baby waking can be shared with others - dh stubbornly won't carry the baby for me for a bit so I can get some rest smile
