  • Hmmm. Try some meditation. Try laying in the dark, relax, and concentrate on breathing. Try propping your feet up on some pillows and prop a pillow under your belly. Try warm milk or a warm bath.

  • I just read in Reader's Digest that if you keep your room cooler then it will help you sleep better. I tend to sleep better with white noise from a fan and being cooled off. If you can, sleep with a body pillow so your joints are supported.

  • I'll try the body pillow. n I'm not a fan of milk w this pregnancy (I usually love milk). I don't want to have to clean the tub to take a bath (I'm anal about clean tubs for baths). Meditation's a good idea. I try that when I can't go back to sleep. N SO can't massage me cuz of his arthritis : / So I'm left with the pillow and meditation. wish me luck. I need my zzz's
