Hi an 13 weeks pregnant and for the last 3 weeks have been unable to sleep. I can get to sleep ok but wake up 2-3 hours later and then cant sleep.

Just wonder if there is anyone else who has had this and also does anyone know if i can take anything to help. I have a doctors appt but dont even know if there is much point?

Probably sounds abit silly but have you tried going for a wee?

I've suffered alot with this too - probably from around 8 weeks as I was waking up feeling really sick and hungry at first. Then it was needing a wee and not being able to get back to sleep. It's really come and gone in phases (I'm 19+5 at the mo). I've tried listening to podcasts which help me get back after a few hours, I also cut down fluid intake later at night (which seemed to help for a while) and sleep with the window open (not that it makes much difference with the current hot weather!). I also bought a dream geni pillow on others recommendations and although it hasn't meant a good nights sleep every night, it's a lot better than it was and I think the pillow helped.

It's tough as you feel so tired from the pg anyway - I hope it improves for you soon.
