    Yep I've had it the whole way through and it's awful! Only thing that helps is lying on my tummy and I can't do that anymore! No other suggestions I hate it! X

    This is horrendous. I got magnesium tablets from Holland and Barrett and take them every evening, they really help. Also cut out caffeine, drink more water. But the magnesium really helped 😊 good luck xx

    Thank you! Going to order some now, I've already cut caffeine out pretty much I've gone off tea n coffee so it's only the occasional can of coke but that'll be no more from now, any things worth a try!

    I feel like mine is ruining my life!! I have a warm bath every night, eat a banana half an hour before bed and only lay down once i'm ready to sleep and it starts instantly! I'm averaging 4-5 hours sleep a night!!

    I'm considering giving magnesium a try, its the most frustrating thing ever, i end up crying some nights were im so tired and annoyed xxx

    I have this in the evenings too, ever since late in the 2nd tri. I'm now 32 wks. I went to the cinema last Friday, and it was awful all the way through the film. Totally ruined the night out!
    I'll try out the magnesium - good tip.

    Magnesium helped me. It also helped to lie on my back and do bicycle movements with my legs until they were tired.
