movement usually settles my littlun down - although not helpful when you're trying to sleep yourself, theory is it rocks them to sleep - try going for a wander around the house, I'm the same at the moment awake for hours and hours in the middle of the night.
Other tip would be distraction - so I get my hubby to rub my feet or head when I can't sleep - don't notice the kicks so much!!
i feel ur pain! i was up for hours last night as baby kicked and punched hell outta me - she also uses my bladder as a bouncy castle, i was up every 5 mins for the tiniest of wees! she is so active, as much as i love it, it can defo get annoying. no advice here sorry just an empathic ear and hugs xx
I have exactly the same problem-you would think that because we are having girls they would be a bit more considerate of our lady parts-nope!
I agree that if im active it rocks baby to sleep,also if i have sex she seems to chill out,the couple of minutes of activity seems to settle her down
I have the smae lol, but its worse when my OH is around me, or im txin or on the phone to him, she just seems to go nuts, kicks me, rolls around. I think its quite cute and annoying that she react to my OH like this But at night when he working night she kicks me as if to say... well where is he then?
As if shes being a bit over excited my OH rubs my bells and she really does calm it down, hes there talking to my belly telling her to be nice to mammy today and try not to kick her too much lol
It's not fun when they make you wince is it - have you tried getting down on all 4s but using your elbows instead of hands to lean on so you're lower down at the front then sway your hips a bit - this usually makes baby move and I can get comfortable enough to get to sleep.
