  • The main reason I could never sleep is because I kept waking up needing to pee!!! But it could also just be the excitement of being pregnant. Then towards the end of pregnancy, it becomes quite a challenge finding a comfortable sleeping position!!!

  • I've battled with insomnia this entire pregnancy. It's been really frustrating because I can't keep my eyes open during the day and then I can't sleep at night. I started taking melatonin--my doc has approved it--using Sleepytime tea, taking warm baths, etc to help. I can get to sleep at night now, but I wake up with terrible back pain. I have six weeks to go and am HUGE, so this makes it hard to get comfortable.
