  • I ended up sleeping in the recliner for the last month. It still wasn't comfortable. I feel your pain!

  • Have you tried proppping your actaul belly on some small pillows? or a wedge under it? it seemed to take some pressure off of mine and made sleeping easier(9but I never made it allt he way to 8 months))

  • Okay this souds stupid but what you need is one pillow between your knees and one pillow supporting your belly(just tuck it under you belly) while on your side...

  • I didn't have an issue. I slept mostly on my tummy until the day I had them. I just had one leg cocked out to the side to keep some pressure off.

  • i used to use the body pillow, have the temp down in the room, fan blowing, and i had it ok'd through my ob/gyn for me to take a sleep aid (which also helped my kids not be night owls after birth)

  • with my first, i was okay till like 7months and ended up with 2 pillows between my legs and 3 under my head. poor hubby. Due to the baby being on a nerve. my leg would jump for no reason.
    2nd baby i slept on the couch from 16weeks till the day he was born. i was able to put my leg up on the couch cushion and be on the side the was the most comfortable. becuz the same reason as the first. it just takes some figuring out. hope u get some rest.
