Anyone got any advice ... am 31+3 and really struggling to sleep now. Have mild spd so sleep with a pillow between my knees/ankles which to date has been fine. Last two nights though I've started to get real sore thighs/arms on the side I'm sleeping - almost as if I'm now so heavy my body can't take the weight
Anyone else had this? Can I do anything as it's making me wake up a lot during the night and most mornings then start in discomfort.
I have no helpful hints, just joining in as also desperate to hear any tricks for sleeping! am 32-33 weeks now and cannot sleep, last night was awake from midnight-4am and had to get up at 8 yaaaaaaaaaaaaawn Feel like theres someone sitting on my chest making it hard to breath when I lay down, even with 5 pillows! and my left hip is burning, probably as laying on my left is the only bearable position. I don't have spd though - sympathies!
I also don't have any useful advice, but also have insomnia at the moment! I'm 37 weeks and wake every night and either lie in bed desperately trying to get back to sleep or end up getting up and wandering around the house aimlessly, watching my DS sleep or go and chatting to the dog! I think I'm going a little insane!
I'm only 24 weeks & already for last couple of nights have had pain on side I'm sleeping on, like you describe, as if I'm too heavy for my body to take...this combined with all the comments people have been making recently has started me believing I'm super big for how far along I am!
However no helpful suggestions I'm afraid...I sleep with 2 or 3 pillows under my head, one between my knees & one under my bump but doesn't seem to be doing the trick anymore
Am also finding it v hard to sleep and am only 29+2! Just can't get comfy and feel constantly restless despite being knackered! Any tips gratefully received! Haven't got any myself, as nothing really seems to help. Grrrrr!
