Is it just me or is it getting harder and harder to sleep the farther I get in this pregnancy?

Does anyone know why this happens??
Or any way to help people sleep??

  • Dont remind me! The farther you get the more uncomfortable you get so it does get harder to sleep.

  • OH yea! I'm finding it super hard to sleep at night. (I'm at about 36 weeks) Somedays I think that I should just go sleep on the recliner. All the pressure in my tummy makes my back hurt something fierce!
