    hello everyone :lol:
    i am new to the board, i just found it while on line...am hoping it might be the extra bit of support i need!
    i am 33 weeks pregnant and I CAN'T SLEEP!
    i wake up nearly every morning between 4 and 6 and i can't get back to sleep.
    as you can see this post was written just before 6am.
    i end up feeling like a zombie for a few hours and then either waking up properly at about 9am or going back to sleep till the afternoon.
    it's so frustrating, i know it's probably my body preparing for a whole lot of lack of sleep but i was kind of looking forward to my last few weeks alone!
    is anyone else having similar funny sleep paterns?
    maybe there's even another zombie on line with me now who'd like to chat!
    thanks for listening xxxx

    I know how you feel. I haven't had a good nights sleep for about 3 - 4 months now. I honestly can't remember sleeping right through.

    It takes me ages to get to sleep because I ca't get comfy. Then I wake up around 4ish and cant get back to sleep. When I do, I end up waking up feeling really knackered.

    Now that I'm on maternity leave it's not too bad bacause I've een napping during the day, but it was really hard when i was still working full time.

    The last few days I have been very restless too...I know how annoying it is...I am lucky to sleep 4 hours and then I am wide awake...And it isn't even from being uncomfortable or having to use the restroom...I've just been very restless...Hopefully it will subside so I can get as much rest as I can before the lil one arrives!

    hi

    Sleep,,,,, what is sleep! Im 32 weeks pregnant and my sleeping pattern is really erratic. I can fall asleep on the sofa at 7pm but try to keep myself awake. I then go to bed usually around 10 - 10.30pm and then it starts, up at midnight, 2.30am, 4am and so on. Ive tried the pregnancy sleeping pillows and although they help a bit, im still getting broken sleep, which is even more difficult as im working at least 40 hours + per week. Im suffering really bad with leg cramps,,,,,almost to the point of tears some nights. I never thought pregnancy was so difficult,,,,,and I dont consider myself to be naive!

    Anyway, enough of my moaning, take care all

    Me no sleep either. Usually nothing comes between me and my sleep but in the last 4 months I wake up every two hours. You could set your clock by me, bed at 10pm, awake and 12,2, 4, 6 and then give up. Seems to help a bit if I put a pillow under my bump but I still wake up just in less pain. What's it all about? :roll:
