I just turned 23 wks and Im having alot of trouble sleeping

I gained about 3 lbs in the pass 3 wks which is normal. My belly is very tight or bloated all the time. Im trying to sleep on my left most of the time, but sometime my chest hurt a little just overall not comfy. I used to feel pretty good on right side but now it feels like heavy and alittle pain on chest. Also every time I turn I'll wake up. How can I make myself comfy? I put somethig between legs but that only last for alil. Im not even on my third tri yet and already in bad shape;(

  • i've been having trouble sleeping for a while (27 weeks). my doc gave me samples of a prenatal with extra B6 and that helped me get and stay asleep a little bit... until that didn't work and she gave me ambien which is a little scary... That wasn't so much for comfort. I have a big body pillow that I lay partway on and I pretty much flip back and forth all night, but it's better than not having it.

  • Try putting a pillow under your stomach to hold it up and a pillow between your knees. That made me sleep better when I was preggos
