Does anyone else whos pregnant have trouble sleeping?

I get up every 2 hours to pee and just cant seem to get comfortable. My bladder is not so great anyway because I had a kidney operation when I was 5 and have always had to constantly use the bathroom. Any suggestions?

  • How far along are you? I'm 38w3d and I cannot sleep either. I pee every 2 hours, I'm having these damn cramps that are driving me crazy and at night I get right-side pains which I massage and eventually I fall asleep. Today marked the beginning of my cramps lasting 3-hours but then they went away and came back later but not for too long. So, its normal in the 9th month but I didn't experience this my previous months.

  • at least you wake up to pee, I wake up 50% needing to pee way bad, but being to tired to get up so I just sleep with that uncomfortable need to pee feeling so I don't get good sleep.

    I would say just drink a big glass of water 1 hour before going to bed and then don't drink anymore after that, it should give you a pretty good head start because you'll have an hour to get that water through you.
