hiya as you all are most probably experiencing ive been finding it hard to sleep at night and this results in me throwing myself into different positions to get to sleep... from one to to another then laying on my back then all over again.... could this be harming the baby do you think??????
No, ive done it all the way throughout. I also am a high-risk pregnancy. Tossing and turning cannot harm the baby sounds strange but, there still well protected by fluid in there.... I have excessive fluid ( polyh ) and she just moves whichever way i go...which is so uncomfy cause i can feel her back whichever way she slides lol. x
I really don't think it would affect the baby, they are pretty protected in there. Don't forget us women have been having babies for years and years - I'm sure if it was an issue we'd be warned about it. Xx
As horrible as it may sound i'm glad someone else spends all night tossing and turning too, coz i was starting to think it was just me!!
No one told me bout this part, I just can't get comfy i've tried pregnancy pillows, but that feels like the baby is being squished too high inside, i've tried nothing under my tummy, but that feels like my insides are being dragged down, I can't sleep on my back i end up struggling for breath, and it feels like someone is standing on my stomach from the weight of the baby, and if i sleep on my sides for too long i end up getting cramp too.
Oh for a good night sleep, even when i've given birth it still won't happen as baby will be here and i'm sure needing attention just as i get comfy
I toss n turn a lot too. I think it can damage our muscles etc because we're a lot less flexible. Babies are a lot more flexible e.g. if you drop them down the stairs it won't do them the same damage as it would do us - they're quite bouncy!
I'm not advocating dropping a baby downstairs to test that notion tho!! It's not a good idea for anyone, any age!
Think about how the midwife manipulates your stomach to feel where the baby is - that can seem quite severe at first but it doesn't do the baby any harm. I don't think tossing and turning at night can be any different to that really.
