Hi all,
I'm 16+3 (FTM), and since around the 6th week of pregnancy, I've noticed my sleep has really taken a hit.
I've always been able to sleep through anything and get a good 8 hours without fail, but now, I'm sleeping much lighter and waking up earlier.
I'm getting around 4 hours a night or broken, light and restless sleep. I am totally exhausted. I don't seem to be able to nap throughout the day either, so I feel like a zombie and baby is a long way off yet!
Does anyone have any tips or help for me? I've just bought some lavender essential oil and a humidifier in the hope that helps!!

Sleep definitely gets worse during pregnancy although yours sounds particularly bad.

The usual sleep advice applies. Light exercise can help you sleep better. You could try a bath before bed. Meditation can work well, there are apps you can try.

You're probably already doing the obvious things like reducing caffeine intake (avoiding in afternoon/evening), avoiding screens before bed, etc?

If you've tried all the above maybe talk to your doctor.
