    Does anyone else feel like they're catching or putting to much pressure on their bump laying on your side?!? I've noticed this the last 2 or 3 nights. I feel like I'm squishing her and she's laying on the bed :rofl: So now I feel like I can't lay on my side because I'm hurting her or have an arm or a leg caught up or something :( She's so far out in front, I already look like I'm full term...she's huge. I'm not carrying her across at ALL, she's in the freakin' way!! :blush:

    I have to keep changing sides and wedge a little one of those micro bean bag pillow things under my bump. Either that or a little wedge would help I think. Without it the weight of her pulling down wakes me up. I just alternate - I start left and just keep on changing!!

    Im up most of the night hauling myself over to change sides :rofl: I dont have the duvet over me as its waaaay too hot so ive started puting it under my bump and then inbetween my legs. I find the cushioning helps me to get more comfortable!

    I don't know which way to lie for the best. Was so exhausted the other night I turned in my sleep only to be woken by the most horrible ripping pain through my abdomen. Won't be doing that again in a hurry! x

    Sleeping has only started to get difficult for me in the last week, I dread to think what it is going to be like in a few weeks time, that is one of the reasons I decided to bring my maternity leave forward, I seem to sleep better in the day!!!:rofl:

    Im like everyone else, waking up 101 times in the night to chance sides!! Its get so uncomfortable on one side after a little while and i always feel like im squashing my baby!!! Definitely cant lie on my back though, Hes all up front and its so so heavy and hurts my hips when i lie flat on my back! I will be so happy when i can lay on my front again!!!

    I have been focusing on my sides because I can't lay on my back right now, however I feel like I am putting too much pressure on either side and end up waking up with super sore hips. Catch 22!!! :shrug:
