  • Lol I was afraid of that. I am 25 weeks pregnant, this is my first full pregnancy so far... I just cant get comfortable for nothing.

  • I'm assuming I'm at that point right now myself. I'm 32 weeks and it's getting to be every night that I toss and turn for hours before drifting off..then I get up to go to the restroom and have to repeat the process...

  • Every so often I would make a huge nest so I could sleep on my stomach. Also try on your side with a small pillow between your legs and another under tiyr tummt for support.

  • I am a stomach sleeper. I used a body pillow. I would wedge my stomach between the pillow and the mattress, and throw my arm dn leg over the pillow. I slept harder than I have in my whole life during my third trimester. Pillows can be a pregnant girl's best friend. Adjust as needed. The further along you get, the mire awake you will become every time you have to move in your sleep, so finding a comfortable position is key. Also, just remember that "comfort" is a relative term during pregnancy. =)
