  • Welcome to the end of your pregnancy that is how the last 6 weeks of mine was. I promise you momma once you are holding your baby in your arms, all the sleepless nights will be forgotten and all the pain and discomfort you are going though will also be forgotten. It will get better. I know just right now you feel like you will be like this forever and that you will never hold your baby. Trust this will not last forever have you tried to take a warm bath? Do you have lots of pillows around you? The pillows helped to a point but without them I would have never gotten an hour with out my pillows.

  • I couldn't sleep at the end of my pregnancy either. 2 nights before DD was born I was in horrible pain and didn't sleep at all. I think it's just something that happens toward the end.
