I'm currently 30+4 and for the past few nights (last night especially) I've been getting what feels like no sleep! I'm awake every single hour, even if it's not to go for a wee. It's not anything to do with noise as you don't hear a thing from inside our home. I can't seem to get comfortable properly. Also doesn't help that I have a bad throat which hopefully I'll try and get something for today. I've been having a pillow between my legs for the past few weeks but now it seems like the novelty of that has worn off, or because I've got slightly bigger it's not doing much anymore. Not sure what else to do?
I'm only 25+2 but I sleep with a cushion between my knees and have a boppy wedge pillow under my bump then a cushion behind my back. Plus I sleep on three sloped pillows so I am slightly propped to lessen hip pain, feel sorry for my DH
I am the same and roughly the same stage too,even have the sore throat! I have seen physio because of a few different problems but she advised me on a sleeping position which has really helped,I was originally using about 4 pillows for it but just got one of those big u shaped ones on amazon and it has made more of an improvement again. I will try and describe-if lying on left side put pillow between legs and straighten left leg and keep right leg bent on top.Turn top half of body as though lying on front,with a pillow under chest then other pillow/two pillows under head with left arm either under pillow under head or behind you. Sounds really odd but weirdly comfortable!Hope it helps!
I'm 39+6 and a few weeks ago I raided the house for spare duvets and have been sleeping with 3 double duvets folded over! DH calls me Princess and the Pea! The pillows between the legs and under bump didn't really work for me as I'm a bit of a fidgeter when I sleep! The cats seem to like my side of the bed as well!
Thankyou l everyone I appreciate the replies and relieved I'm not the only one out there having rubbish sleep- although I do sympathise with you all! I'm currently in bed now so I'm going to rearrange my pillows and see how I feel.
I'm convinced my sore throat and cough is what's making me wake up a lot during the night as it's making me feel a bit 'poorly' and stuffy-headed
Number3 - my partner orders from Amazon a lot so I'll show him tomorrow and hopefully he might take the hint! Unfortunately on my phone (on the mumsnet app) I can't seem to see photos but I'm sure you look very comfortable and I'm not jealous at all!
Will also try the duvet thing if I can find an extra one lying around tomorrow!
I have the dream genii lite pillow, it's just the part of the dream genii that supports back and bump, I find it easier than multiple pillows. Am also sleeping with a thin pillow between my legs now as well. Seems to help a bit. Stuffy noses do not help matters either!! I am starting to think that bad sleep is just natures way of preparing us for what's to come!
