I like the suggestion of getting on his schedule. Be up when he's at work. Be with him when he gets home, and sleep with him when he sleeps. If you don't have an outside job, this is fine. It has the added benefit that when the LO arrives, you might be able to get the baby on Dad's schedule, so daddy can still get some sleep. Babies often seem to have their "nights and days" mixed up, in that they want to sleep all day and fuss all night anyway!
Otherwise, if you need to get back to normal, then you are dealing with a temporary sleep disturbance issue.This is caused by stress, diet, medication, or hormones. Stress- learn more about your pregnancy. Meet other pregnant moms. Write down what you're worried about and discuss it with someone. Diet - no caffeine at all while pregnant. No snacking after dinner. Eat right, exercise during the day - walk 2 miles min. Medication - see your doctor. Hormones will shift in time.
