  • I know for me I hard to start sleeping on the couch. It was the only place I was comfortable and could get any sleep.

  • I used to put a pillow between my knee's and then another for my ankles...then another to hold on to and of course one under my head. If you have the prego body pillow your all set, how ever there's no point in buying it if your alrd 9 months unless you plan on having another baby soon after. that's all you can really do hun..I know it's SUCKS I hated it, but your almost done!!!
    Congrat's and good luck with the new baby!!!

  • Take a luke warm bath before bed (with whirlpool if you have the option) to relax you. Get a prego body pillow, if you don't already have one. The C shaped ones are really good. If that doesn't help...try sleeping in a lazy boy type chair or sitting up on the couch. The last month really sucks for sleeping but try to get as much as you're going to need it!

  • Sleep near the bathroom, on the couch or recliner, wherever you are most comfy...No tv or baths right before bed cuz they stimulate you and make it more difficult to fall asleep. Reading helps me...

  • You can try sleeping in a recliner chair, or if you don't have one- prop yourself up like you are in an elevated hospital bed in an almost sitting position. I agree with relaxing your mind before bedtime, try a cup of decaf tea or warm milk and reading instead of TV. I also wear an eye mask sometimes to make it extra dark : )
