I'm in my third trimester of what's been a fairly easy and much wanted pregnancy so I shouldn't complain but I will.
For the past few nights, lying down in bed has made my back ache so much that I've ended up padding around the house in the middle of the night looking for things to do.
Then tonight my back niggles have started again about an hour or so after I've came to bed, only when I got up I needed the toilet. Spent 20 minutes freezing on the loo with the shits, stood up and felt sick. Ended up throwing up in the sink and pissing myself in the process. I'm truly glad that dh was asleep in bed to miss the entire spectacle .
So now I've cleaned the bathroom and am heading downstairs to do something until my tiredness outweighs by sore back and I finally fall asleep! It can't just be me awake; so what's everyone else up to?
To be fair I've had it easy so far so i shouldn't whinge.
No, haven't tried heat pads, massages or indeed anything that might help at all. I prefer to just potter around the house at night like a self-pitying fat vampire in pyjamas. I will try something actually useful today though!
40+2 and I wake up between 3-6 most days. I don’t know why and I can’t get back to sleep and it’s killing me. My yoga teacher said it’s meant to be prep for when the baby arrives and you get interrupted sleep. I just hate it.
Ha OP I feel your pain. I spewed the other day and pissed myself, unfortunately I was sat on the edge of my bed spewing into a sick bucket. Thankfully my fat thighs diverted it away from my mattress, oh the glamour! 36+4 here and surviving on 4 hours of broken sleep every night. I find that 4am is the magic time that my body decides to go to sleep. So over it!
