Can hardly sleep and for the little sleep I get I am getting very strange visions, not sure they are dreams as such because they are cloudy and very odd. They are quite horrific in their content and all seem to amount to the same thing.

Never had anything like this with previous two. Am I lacking something obvious from my diet or is this normal for some pregnancies.

I did get fever induced hillucinations when I was admitted to hospital a few weeks back with UTI that had spread to my kidney and was told this was norma with a severe fever. But I have no symptoms of fever now.

Not sure I can be much help - I am having loads of trouble sleeping, and do have very vivid dreams, however they are 'normal' dreams rather than visions. Could it be because you are only in a light sleep - ie they are half thoughts/half dreams?

I have started my own 'bedtime routine' to try and help me get to sleep more soundly. All good preparation for the little one I suppose!!

Do you have a sausage-shaped pregnancy/nursing pillow? I can't emphasise how helpful this was to me once I got big - I would sleep on my side with the pillow cradling my bump and was out like a light most nights. After the birth, you can use it to feed, then when baby is older and starting to sit up, you can put it behind them to catch them when they fall back. As you can tell, I LOVE mine!

Hope this helps.

Thank you, I never thought about the half sleep/half dream thing that may well be why it feels more like a vision. Maybe I am trying to fall asleep with too much going on in my head.

Will try a sausage shaped pillow, infact I am up for trying anything, I am struggling to function during the day due to lack of sleep and with a 4 year old and a 10 month old it's not making for a stress free time.

I definitely think the fact that I have so much bouncing around my head contributes to my weird/vivid dreams. Eg riots featured quite heavily last night, and I know I was only dozing really for the first hour or so due to being so bloody uncomfortable!

Tonight I will avoid TV/twitter and stick to my book to help me wind down before I try and sleep. Then I can go back to dreaming of my baby 'to do' list instead smile
