    Is anyone the same?

    I'm so tired and have no problem getting to sleep but it's staying asleep that's the problem. Most nights I wake at around 2:30 and lay wide awake till 4am sometimes.

    I get so uncomfortable in bed as my back hurts and conscious of what position I'm laying in. At the moment I keep getting shortness of breath and feel like I need to take a deep breath. This could be due to chip getting bigger now.

    Chip doesn't move much in the night, mostly during the day so I kno it's not her keeping me awake.

    Anyone else in this position also?

    Omg that's so nice of your OH don't think mine would do that thoug especially at the moment, he has man flu!! ;)

    I have one of those dreamgeni pillows and it has helped.

    I tend to have a nap in the day and that helps too. Just suppose I should get used to it for when little chip arrives ;)

    I commiserate. I've not been sleeping for more than 3-4 hours per night for weeks now, and over the last 2 weeks it's become worse than that - 3 hours now counts as a good nights sleep, half the time (including last night and Christmas eve) I sleep only 1-2 hours. Yawn!

    I know exactly how you feel. I go to bed normally about 9 or 10 fall asleep fine. But I wake up every hour or hour and a half. Either cos I need a wee or cos I'm uncomfortable. Got checked over yesterday by antenatal as hands, feet and ankles had really swollen and I had thrown up and kept getting white spots in my vision. Even the lady said how tired I looked. Just can't wait for a decent nights sleep...won't be for a while tho! Oh well. Lol.xx

    I was gonna post a thread like this but actually managed 3 big chunks of sleep last night including a whole 4 hour stretch. Past 2 nights before I was snatching an hour at a time and I was knackered.
