  • I think this is totally normal. I think it's God's way of preparing us to be awake more at night with the new baby! Try a wam bath before going to bed and practicing deep breathing exercises to relax.

  • I am a bad sleeper period, ever since having my first. I usually wake every few hours or so. If anything, it is to pee.

  • Yeah that started happening to me around 35 wks, and I got induced at 38. I don't think I ever got more than 3-4 hrs at a time. BUT it is practice for when baby comes! You'll be up at all hours, and usually don't get more than a couple hrs sleep before baby is hungry again. :-)

  • totally normal. I made alot of arts and crafts for my first son with all my extra time at night. With my daughter I read alot and caught up on all my current events. Lol. Make friends that work third shift.
