Wide awake at 2:30!! I hate pregnancy!!!

I only have a few weeks left of my pregnancy and I cannot sleep tonight! I layed down at 9:30 because I was soo tired, as usual, but I've barely slept since. I have the worst heartburn, and nothing is helping it go away, and I keep having to go to the bathroom. This is soo frustrating because I know I am going to be exhausted when my girls are ready to get up in the morning.

  • Have you tried unisom to help you sleep? I took it in my second trimester cause I couldn't sleep sometimes and it really helped me. I hope you get some rest soon!

  • Holla! I know right? I'm almost 38 weeks and I want my body to rest before I have the baby. I was exhausted before and after my first child. I have to pee every 5 minutes and legs hurt and ache and are so puffed. I hate this pregnancy, also i have placenta previa so I've had terrible cramping and excessive braxton hicks. I WANT OUT! i haven't tried sleeping pills but that seems like a good idea. I'm gonna ask my doctor to prescribe me some. I'm so tired lately, and we stay tired when we never sleep also. :O

  • Same here!! I am 29 weeks pregnant and no matter how hard I try I cannot fall asleep it takes me at least 1 - 2 hours to finally fall asleep and then I have to be up at 6am for work it totally sucks! I have 11 weeks to go and I can't wait, it's not like I'll be getting any sleep then either lol.

  • My baby is 5 mo now, but I had a hard time sleeping too! I was a very light sleeper and the smallest noise would wake me up and that was it, I could NOT go back to sleep! I hated it! I also had bad acid reflux that used to keep me awake, until I was prescribed Prilosec. That was the only thing that worked for me :)
