So this is my second day I've woken up stupidly early I'm 35 weeks and can't get comfy, could do with having the whole bed to myself but poor dh has to share with me I can't switch my brain off either I know that by 1pm I'll be absolutely shattered (or maybe earlier!) dh has got out of bed as he isn't comfy and can't sleep either. Anyone else struggling?
I'm 22 weeks and although knackered at night I can't switch my brain off, get comfy and go to sleep, lord knows what I will be like in another 12-15 weeks! So I'm afraid not miracle cute advice here but I can sympathise!
33 weeks here and I would say that for about the last 5 weeks or so my sleep has seriously been affected - the most interrupted sleep I've had is about 3.5 hours and that's not regular. SPD is a major attribute to lack of sleep. I'm averaging 4-5 hours a night as the pain is do bad. Had a cry last night thinking it could be months before I get more than 4 hours sleep in one shot
Meeee! I'm 21 weeks and I have some kind of pregnancy insomnia. Its driving me nuts! My brain really won't switch off. Towards the end last time dh sometimes slept in the spare bed so we both could get some sleep.
Oh I couldn't get comfy at all in either of my pregnancies as i had SPD even without SPD though I still couldn't get comfy.
The only thing that made me vaguely comfy were hundreds of strategically placed pillows but then once I got comfy I needed the loo again or got leg cramps.
I'm sure though that there is a law whereby it's OK to slap anyone who tellsvyou 'it's your body's way of preparing you for motherhood' I never got how extreme exhaustion helps you prepare...sleep is what helps you prepare lol
