I havent been able to get a good nights sleep in a week, is this normal? please answer, its stressing me out.

i havent been able to sleep for the past week. i just lay in bed for awhile, fall asleep, then wake up not even an hr later, toss and turn, fall back asleep and do it all over again about 3-5times a night. is not being able to sleep normal in pregnancy? im 8weeks tomorrow. i have school so i get up at 5:30am and dont get home til 2pm. i havent been able to get a home map when i get home. so ive been getting like 4-6hrs every night. Its kinda stressing. me out cause i get to school at 6:45 and its like im wide awake. any advice on what to do?

Also, is it normal to feel a tenderness or discomfort when someone leans in and accidently puts a weight on your belly? will the sleeping get any better? how long does it usually last? and anything i can do to help sleep at night?

  • Yep, chalk it up to your insane levels of hormones. It doesn't really get any better. But when you do feel sleepy SLEEPPPPPP!!! Don
    t worry about house work. Make sleeping eating and school your priority! I think the lack of sleep in pregnancy gets you use to the lack of sleep with a new born. You will make it, we all do.
