How in the hell do you sleep when you don't want to be touched, over heat in .2 seconds and feel smooshed when your SO puts his arm around you!? I feel SO bad because my hubby's starting to feel pushed aside because I can't cuddle and sleep like I used to! I used to be SO cold so I'd MAKE him snuggle me and we'd fall asleep like that... Now I can't handle his arm around me anymore :( it makes me wanna cry! PLEASE tell me this'll go away or there's something i can do to make this easier!!

I was the same way through my last pregnancy and this one. It ends up being easier when he realizes that it isn't that you don't want him to touch and cuddle with you...that you're just miserable. I have to sleep with a body pillow and a fan on me....no blanket whatsoever or I feel like I can't breathe. Try the fan...if that doesn't work, try to snuggle during the day. I personally get hotter when I'm laying down in bed than when I'm sitting up and watching TV through the day. You'll just have to try to make up for it in other ways if it turns out you can't snuggle at night! To this day, I still can't snuggle (I'm 4 months pregnant now) because I get hot and feel like I'm going to explode.... sorry :(

Explain to him that women's body temps are all over the place when they are pregnant and sometimes you just feel super hot and it makes you want to be touched. Tell him there are plenty of other girls who feel the same way (myself included) and that its just temporary. When I was pregnant I was the same way and my fianc

:( we can't snuggle during the day he doesn't get home till after dinner so it's more or less he eats then we go to bed.. When he's not working he's got 1000 things to do around the house and doesn't have the time to cuddle like we used to.

I was having the same problem. I just let him fall asleep that way and then move his arm/leg/etc.. whatever is bugging me.

We turn down the heat at night that way we can be covered up and cuddle. We will watch tv for a few with cuddle time. We add in sex as much as we can so we still get that closeness. However, Sense dh feels hes hurting me its not often. We do cuddle as we sleep some but I prop myself higher than him and even if my hand is just on him or his is on me then its not so bad. I just told him not around my belly cause it makes it hard to breath. He normally rest his hand on my hip and that isnt so bad.

You are not the only one. Whereas I could lay comfortably and fall asleep fairly quickly before, I find myself tossing and turning and waking up sweating bullets. I'm due in February and ready for this to be over so I can regain my sanity!
