I'm almost 29 weeks and I have a sleeping disorder. They took me off the meds I was on and I get maybe 2 or 3 hours of sleep every night. It always seems like when I'm exhausted (and finally comfortable) enough to sleep, my son decides that it's time for him to play kick mommy's ribs or whatever else he can reach.

I'm 32 weeks tomorrow and since 25 weeks I have struggled to sleep so ive noticed what helps and what doesnt help/



My advice which works for me (may not work for all):
*Dont drink a lot of energy drinks, coffee, tea or pop (that has caffine in*some like zup have non in*) because it makes baby move. I drink two cups of tea a day and if im going outside i drink a can of pop because I get dizzy and the sugar helps.
*Eating before bed can cause your body to digest food which can be uncomfortable when trying to get to sleep.
*laying on my back can bring heartburn, i take gaviscon and milk which doesnt take it away completly but eases it. I also get a sore bottom due to the increased weight so i put a pillow under one butt cheek.
*If I lay on my side my belly hurts so i put a pillow just under the lower bit of my tummy and between my leg, I find this really comfortable. Baby has a habbit of kicking/hitting me if im lay on a side where he is resting on so I swap sides.
*I got incontinance so I wear a sanitary towle. When i don't wear one, the leaking of pee makes it impossible to sleep.
*If im stressed about anything... i can kiss goodbye to a good nights sleep so i try not to stress about something before i go to bed.



Doing all this I still wake up every 2 hours 45 mins (like i have an in built alarm clock) to pee. But I find it much easier to get back to sleep if I have done these things than i would if i dont.
