I've got the most terrible pregnancy insomnia. It's fucking hell and I just want to sleep!

What can I do? I just want to be enjoying a full nights sleep again sad

I saw it as good training for when the baby actually arrives.

Sorry, no advice, but it’s a pain.

@Fightthebear it's so awful and frustrating. Yep like you said the only positive is that I'm hoping it will somewhat prepare me for when he actually arrives sad

I'm not even pregnant. I think mine is perimenopause insomnia.

Snap @Patchworksack I honestly think I will never sleep again.

Sorry OP ... I honestly think it's your body getting you prepped for little sleep.

You do get used to it thou 😆

@mcjx I'm sorry to tell you but it doesn't help at all 😔. I had terrible insomnia when I was pregnant but having a baby and not sleeping is a whole new ball game! Fortunately after a couple of months you do get used to it. My advice for when the baby arrives as everyone gave me (which of course I didn't listen to!) Is literally sleep whenever the baby is and don't do anything unless you absolutely have to in those first few weeks. I mean no cleaning, cooking, ironing etc. And drink up your little baby. Mine's about to be 11 weeks and I miss his tiny little newborn days already. And congratulations!!
