    any one else uncomfortable in bed now. i ddnt expect it to happen so soon for the past 2 nights i havnt been able to get comfortable and when i do i wake up again needing a wee like last night i woke up at the stupidist time of 1.30 (stupid because i make sure i have a wee before i go to sleep and this was only a few hours before at 11) and after that i couldnt get back to sleep again and i kept waking up uncomfortable about every hour!! any one else not sleeping this early (im 21 weeks)

    Im already at it and Im only 14 weeks!:dohh:
    I pee before going to bed (around 10/11 pm) then wake again about 2 am and cannot get comfortable enough to drop off. I find myself going and getting on the sofa downstairs to snuggle up...it works most of the time.

    Count me in! They say you're supposed to have more energy during the 2nd tri, but how can you when you're not getting enough sleep??? Argh!

    I feel like I have limited sleeping positions and so limited choices to get comfortable. Like I'm so conscious about sleeping on my left side and it's hard cause I feel the need to lay on my back to get comfortable sometimes, and my guilty feelings won't let me (keep thinking I'm getting comfortable at the expense of blocking off my lil girl's food or oxygen supply)! :cry:

    And those leg cramps, yah, I can relate! I've realized though that so long as I don't have my legs extended and keep them bent (like when you sleep on your side), the leg cramps don't come. Which again is hard cause it's soooo tempting to stretch (which provokes the cramps cause you point your toes).

    And last but not the least, gotta love those hourly trips to the bathroom! LOL

    I use it on top of my normal pillow...it sort of helps me snuggle down a bit, my back hurts less too...
