Does anyone have difficulty sleeping or recommendations?

For the past couple weeks I feel like I've gotten no sleep. I'm beyond tired and agitated. I wake up every hour or 2 because of discomfort.. and have to sit up for a half hour at least at a time. I've currently been. Up for over an hour now just crying because of the discomfort and pressure.

I have been taking unisom

My OB told me it’s safe to take 25mg of Benadryl so I do that a few times a week and it helps but I know a lot of people don’t want to take anything!

I have this problem. I tend to sleep better by making myself a mocktail of Magnesium ( I use Magnesi-om by Moon Juice) and Tarte Cherry juice and I add some seltzer water. It’s tasty and helps me sleep. I’ve incorporated a pregnancy pillow and heating pad and am starting prenatal massage and chiropractor. Our current mattress sucks (don’t buy from IKEA lol) so we are getting a medium firm memory foam mattress to help. Especially since I’ll be having a C-section so I need a bed that is easy to get in and out of.

I say call your doctor. They said I could take half a unisom when I was having real problems sleeping and then the last time I went they suggested magnesium. I also use a pregnancy body pillow.

I’ve definitely had more pain and discomfort these past few days. Having an adjustable base mattress has been my saving grace up to this point. I don’t use a pregnancy pillow, just a medium-firm king sized pillow to support my leg. I’m still tossing and turning all night, getting up to pee at least 4 times, and waking up at ungodly hours. Oh and I’ve been waking up randomly because I’m STARVING and can’t sleep until I’ve eaten 😓 No real advice here, but you’re not alone! Most nights I’m sleeping like a contortionist to get comfortable!

Same!! I'm literally up every 2 hours.

Hate you can’t sleep girl, have you tried a pregnancy pillow? That’s seemed to help me a little. Also read lemon balm tea is good for insomnia, anxiety & irritability.

I can relate. I was so uncomfortable last night. I tossed and turned all night. Its like there is nothing I can do for relief

I toss and turn all night because of leg cramps, and hip pain.
