Yes, it is normal. No worries. And if you are like me, eventually you will get used to the kicking and be able to get back to sleep a little better. I'm 8 months pregnant with my third baby, and I still get really irritated that when I get up to pee at night, she goes wild for the next half hour and I can't fall back to sleep easily anyway. EGH!
Talk to your doctor and see if there is a sleep aid they will approve. I know mine recommends the regular unisom (not the sleep gels or anything fancy...just the original), and that has helped some.
