  • I have heard sleeping in a recliner is a godsend. It was for me when I would nap at my moms but we didnt have one. I actually slept on an elevated air mattress. The air mattress reduced pressure points that caused discomfort when I tried to sleep. However the extreme fatigue can also be your body telling you to rest up for the soon to come task at hand. OH and you can also take over the counter sleep aids or benadryl if yuo need the extra help

  • Being pregnant is pretty exhasting in itself. You might call your dr. and tell him whats going on, he may check your iron levels. my son didnt move a lot during my last month or so, i think he ran out of room, lol

  • I am having the same problem as you and I am also 33 weeks pregnant. I have been sleeping practically setting up. My husband says I sleep all the time now and don't get anything done. Which is true. My baby is slowing down in movement, my doc said there is less room for him to move around in. As long as he/she is moving a little you are fine. Good Luck. We are due soon!
