My sleeping hasn't been great since about 10 weeks of pregnancy, and the last two months it's been because of hip pain. I barely slept last night and now I'm up again tonight. The problem tonight though is different - I suddenly have really bad backache and also some pain in my lower abdomen on the left hand side. It's so bad I've hardly noticed my hip pain. I'm getting really paranoid that something is happening as the MW at my antenatal class said early labour feels like bad period pains - and I always get bad back ache at the start of a period - but surely it's too early for anything to be happening? Plus I'm just exhausted now - I really need to sleep, but I'm in agony when I lie down. It's much better now I'm sat up, but I can't sleep sat up - LOL. Does anyone have any tips?
