Hey ya'll i was just curious to see if i was the only one who suffers from insomnia in the last week of pregnancy!?!? I am 38 weeks 2 days, and if she dosent arrive before, in 5 days i will be induced. I just cant sleep. I'm not sure if its my body preparing me for no sleep...im not sure if its a good or a bad thing. Im a little tired during the day, and its usually easier for me to sleep during the day! its so weird. I have never been so tired, but at the same time, energized!

  I am almost 31 weeks along and for the last few day I have not been able to sleep. Before now I would sleep for 10 hours a night now I can barely get 5. I am tired but I cant seem to get comfortable anymore.

I am not currently pregnant, but as a mommy of 3 I can tell you that insomnia is perfectly normal, especially during the last part of pregnancy.  Try this:  keep track of the times you wake up at night, especially the times that you wake up hungry, and most of the time (at least with my kids) whatever time I woke up during my pregnancy was the time they woke up to nurse after they were born.  Unfortunately after going from baby to baby to baby for 7 years, I can't sleep through the night, I have become programmed.  It does suck to hear everyone in the house snoring and your eyes are wide open.  Hang in there, you're almost done, and remember this when in labor...The harder you push, the faster it's done and over with.  If this is your first I can give you this bit of inspiration:  As soon as the baby comes out, the intense pain instantly stops!!It's like turning off a light switch so don't be a "push wuss" (that's what my ob called it) get that baby out!!  Good Luck to you and your beautiful baby.
