  • Oh honey it is normal. It gets worse so hang in there. At 35 weeks you will not be able to sleep because you have too pee so much and your back will hurt so bad. GL!

  • i had the same problem till my mom suggested a regular pillow between my legs it seems to be working i am 11 wks now and the only time i can't seem to sleep is when i kick the pillow off the bed or if i gotta pee. so just try a pillow that isn't really being used and put it between your legs it will help with back pain a lil bit and may help you sleep. hope this helps

  • It is normal and you will not sleep well again until they are grown, or at least teenagers.

  • I'm 32 weeks and I can't sleep well at all. My belly always hurts, whether it's bad positioning, stretching pains, or whatever. I've just learned to sleep whenever I can throughout the day, whenever I am comfortable. I'm trying to get as much sleep as I can, whenever able, because after the baby comes, I know I wont have the chance!

  • Get the pillow it is so worth it. I used one during labor with my 4 year old. Even with no drugs and contractions 4 minutes apart I was able to sleep for 30 mins.
