  • I know it can be very tiring. Last year when I was pregnant I wanted to sleep all the time but my son was 4 and didn't think it was fun if momtook a nap, plus I worked all day. If you are having a lot of trouble try talking to your dr. Or lay on the couch and let your daughter watch a movie or cartoons and rest for a little bit. GL.

  • Sounds like you need to call 1-800-GRANDMA. Have her visit grandma for the weekend if possible. It completely OK to ask for help every once in a while. Especially since you need to get rest. The house can wait...I promise, the world will not come to an end if the laundry isn't done. Also, when I was in that phase, my dr told me to take 1 or 2 Benadryl to help bring on sleep. Start with 1, if that doesn't work in an hour or so, take another, but no more than 2. Then make sure Daddy knows he is on duty that night if DD is home. I hope this helps. Good luck...
