    Hi Cath. I had a terrible night last night too. I don't even know what's keeping me up, I'm just restless and a bit anxious. Sadly I don't have any suggestions! Hope you managed to get some sleep in the end x

    I have the same problem aswell, once I've got up to go to the loo, i can't sleep, even though I'm so tired.

    I read a tip that if you count backwards from 100 and only concentrate on the numbers you will be asleep before you get to number 1 !! It usually works for me but the hard part is not letting any other thoughts invade the counting lol. Good luck x

    Me too! I wake up worrying about everything and just can't get back to sleep. If anyone finds a remedy i'd be grateful for one!

    Ditto!! Wake up at 3/4ish then awake for an hour! No idea how to stop it but I'm just greatf I can fall back to sleep eventually.

    I have fou d that if I read a novel before I go to sleep I sleep better rather than readi g my pregnancy book.
    Not sure if it's connected to sleep but it has worked last two nites xx

    Same here. Wake usually 3 or 4am and then lie awake for ages. Got to point now that on Monday night I was texting DH, who was working nightshift, at 3am. He came home this morning and told me I was deathly pale - lack of sleep :-(

    Aww I feel for you,dr calls it pregnancy induced insomnia (at least in my case) and boy does it suck! I have no problems falling asleep however staying asleep is another matter!

    Here are drs and other peoples suggestions to me try them unfortuantly none worked for me so I have to nap like a cat all day or I'll be even more zombie like..... I hope some/any/ all work for you

    1. Switch tv off an hr before Bed and read, go to sleep when you can't read any more

    2. Hot milky drink an hr before bed

    3. No naps during the day

    4. Eat something before going bed as your metabolism doesn't switch off when your sleeping

    5. A walk in the afternoon evening

    6. Classical music played at a low volume

    7. Lavender spray on pillow - (I asked my dr if lavender is ok in pregnancy and she said yes- providing your not consuming it!)

    8. Warm bubble bath

    10. Dairy to write down all days stresses/ worries/ anxiety

    11. if you spend 20 minutes trying to sleep but can't get up and do something else then try again in half an hr or so
