  • Honey, you won't be getting sleep now for about a year or so. All I can tell you is to try to grab some naps in a recliner.

  • You sound like me when i was pregnant with my son. Good luck! But there is really nothing you can do.

  • i know how u feel! im 31 weeks and im having those same problems. ive found that the couch is the most comfortable place to sleep, because i can lean my back on the back of the couch, lay on my side with a small pillow inbetween my legs.

  • if you get hot at night like me sleep with the fan on and pointing towards your face and maybe gettiing a big body pillow will help you better then just regualr pillows good luck!!

  • I think it's your body's way of getting you prepared for sleepless nights when baby gets here. When you're first preggers, you wanna sleep all of the time but by the end, you're praying for sleep. lol

  • Ditto Bethany. Welcome to mommyhood, prepare to not sleep for 18 years. I'm sorry you're uncomfortable. Hope you get some rest tonight. Try using extra pillows to prop up your tummy.

  • Give birth! Seriously you aer going to be terribly uncomfrotable until then and there is nothing you can do other then pillows to prop up the belly like others suggested or sleeping on the couch or in a recliner helped me sometimes.
