I know you can't do it all the time but does a warm bath help? I find it really helps relax and settle me before bed the I can usually find a more comfy spot as I'm more relaxed. Keep focus on how far u have come won't be long till little one will be here and all will be forgotten in the meantime big hugs and chocolate!
I know how you feel, I'm the same at 36 weeks! Warm baths really do help me and I often end up sitting it in and topping it up for hours! Must be hard with your partner being so far away too! I moan quite bit about how uncomfortable I feel and I can't sleep well either... However, we need to keep in mind how incredibly lucky we are and I stop myself from getting down by reminding myself of this and how blessed I am to be having this beautiful baby. Not long for both of is to go now and it will all be worth it! : ) X x
Thanks, good to know I'm not alone here! I had actually just got out of the bath hence my upset that it did nothing!
It didn't help that I was so tired I felt stuck on my back in the bath and realised I had nobody to haul me out, feel like one of those whales that gets stuck in a river and they try to help them back out to sea.
