How difficult is it for a pregnant woman to sleep?


If you've ever been pregnant or know someone who is/was, how difficult is it to sleep? I'm 35 weeks pregnant now and I have been finding that I can't sleep for more than a few hours at a time. I usually wake up because I'm in pain or because I have to use the restroom and then I can't fall back asleep. I'm constantly tired. Is this normal?

    This is great advice; my OBGYN always recommended that pregnant women sleep on their *left* sides, never on your back or right side. If you sleep on your right side, it puts more pressure on your organs. And also sleep with a body pillow! ~It worked!

    "You're actually going to be worn out for the next 18 years or so." ---- Hahaha, He's just being nice, that's an UNDERSTATEMENT! You'll never feel fully rested again after you have a child -- if they don't keep you up, stress about them will.
