    For the last few weeks i'v been finding it really really hard to sleep! It was never this bad last time i was pregnant! :-(
    Its taking me ages and ages to actually get too sleep then by the time i do i have a really unseatled night and wake up god knows how many times, I wake up because im thirsty, i need the loo, im too warm, i feel sick, my NOSE is itchy if none of that then just for no reson at all! Its making me feel really awful and really getting me down, I can do sleepless nights with a newborn no problem it doesnt bother me but when im pregnant knackerd all the time and have a toddler too look after with this awful back pain i feel like crap! :cry:

    I'm with you ... sleeping is a LOT harder this second time around. Can't offer much of a solution ... it seems everything either wakes me up or keeps me awake. Then, when I do fall asleep, I have awful dreams ... are they bothering you too????

    I havent been able to sleep at all in this pregnancy either and it is driving me crazy! With my last baby I was out as soon as I laid down and with this one it is like when I am finally ready for bed I just lay there.....I pee like 58493 times because I feel like I can never get it all out and I dont want to cough or sneeze in my sleep and pee all over myself lol. I dont know its just wearing me down! I babysit other kids too....so I run on maybe 5 hours asleep to watch my 3 year old, my cousins 1 year old and my friends 4 month old.
    Yea so if anyone finds a way to sleep please let me in on this secret!!

    I'm with you on this one, thankfully it hasn't happened too often, but tonight i've had really unsettled sleep, then woke up before 5 and cannot get back to sleep.

    If I wasn't pregnant I'd probably drink some night nurse!!!

    I'm exactly the same, I struggle to get to sleep & then keep waking up because of bad dreams or because I need the loo. Its driving me mad.

    I've been the same for over a month now so I dont go to bed or attempt to sleep until I am so tired I cant keep my eyes open anymore, I still wake up a few times but less than I was and have less nightmares.
