    Oh it pisses me off so much, some nights it's ridiculous & it annoys my oh too, it makes the whole bed shake! Im guessing it's something to do with nerves in my back & bubs lying on them? x

    Yes it's awful. Had it before but more frequent during my pregnancy. Only thing i can do to ease it, is get up and walk around. Not sure if it's circulation problem? Don't think i'll ever get rid of it :-(
