  • That's pretty normal. It's often hard to be comfortable and sleep later in pregnancy, and the bigger your baby gets, the less she will move around because space is getting limited.

  • Happens the same to me, I get up to go to the bathroom and it takes me an hour to go back to sleep. Hate it at 6 in the morning because i dont want to get up to go to work.

  • I remember those days! I couldn't sleep on my back because my tummy was too heavy

  • I'm 30 weeks 5 days pregnant and I experience the same thing. It's normal. And you're not supposed to lay on your back when you're further along in your pregnancy anyway because the weight of the uterus puts pressure on certain arteries, which can cut off blood flow.. When I accidentally sleep on my back, I wake up in alot of pain.
