Sleepless in Portland

Wish I was getting to sleep as soundly as this little guy.

I think I’ve officially entered that stage of pregnancy where the sleep doesn’t come easily.

I’m currently 24 weeks (25 weeks on Wednesday, which is 6 months!) and while I don’t have any horrible aches and/or pains that should be prohibiting me from getting sleep, for some reason I can’t seem to get a decent night’s sleep these days.  I’ve been waking up every couple of hours and when I am sleeping, the sleep feels restless and I wake up feeling completely groggy and wiped out.

So frustrating!  What’s a girl to do?

(Read more after the jump…)

I know that at some point in pregnancy, women just start getting uncomfortable and thus sleep is difficult, but I just don’t get it, because I don’t feel uncomfortable yet!  My feet haven’t gotten swollen, I don’t get up to pee in the night, I’ve had barely any round ligament pain, my back is a little sore (nothing too terrible) and I’ve made it all this time without one of those $70 snake pillows, so what gives?

Is this just nature’s way of preparing me for the sleepless nights that are to come with an infant?  If so, I would’ve appreciated at least one more month of sleep so I could stockpile it a bit.  Even though I know you can’t really stockpile sleep, it still makes me feel better to dream that I can.

Did any of you have trouble sleeping at this point in your pregnancy?

What did you do to help yourself sleep better?

Any miracle cures?

Help!!


Signed,
