  • I would call your doc. Better safe than sorry.

  • That's happened to me too, even when I'm not preggo. Sometimes I'd struggle to wake up and it was like "satan" was holding me down and I couldn't wake up... it was weird and scary but it doesn't happen often to me. I don't think it means anything is wrong, I think it just happens sometimes. if your worried you can call your doc but i doubt they'll tell you much

  • My doctor would want me in right now if I let them know that. At the very least call but you will most likely have to go in.

  • Happens to me too. I heard your body is somewhat paralyzed when you are sleeping so you don't sleepwalk or do anything crazy in your sleep. I don't know if that is true, but it wouldn't hurt to ask the doc.
