ThePracticalMommy, thanks for answering. I've heard that this is your body's way of getting you ready. Unfortunately, I sometimes wish that I could just sleep through the night. It would definitely be nice! Thank you for the tips and trust me, I've been taking cat naps during the day. :)
Eleanor's Words, thank you. Everyone experiences pregnancy differently and you are lucky that you never woke up in pain. It is really nice to hear that I'm not the only one that's gone through this.
Seicheprey, I can believe I'll be worn out for the next 18 years or so! I bet you're keeping busy with your three!
Rob Winters, I remember when I was 27 weeks and it was definitely frustrating. At that point, I had been sleeping on my side for a while and 27 weeks was about the time when I became so frustrated over the fact that I couldn't sleep on my stomach. It felt like I hadn't slept comfortably in so long and I still had (what felt like) a long way to go. Congratulations to you and your wife!
Renegadetory, I can completely understand where you're coming from! I remember being uncomfortable when I was sleeping back then, but at least I was able to fall asleep and sleep through the night (minus a few bathroom breaks during the night). And now it seems as though I went from just being uncomfortable to waking up in pain. I hope the rest of your pregnancy goes smoothly and congratulations!
