My first pregnancy I slept relatively well, with the occasional exception. Now, my toddler is finally sleeping through the night & I can't sleep, because I'm 26 wks pregnant. In fact, I haven't slept since the beginning of this pregnancy & I am completely exhausted....any tips?

thanks for the suggestions ladies...yep, I'm married, but hubby has been falling asleep putting Evan to bed (he works in construction & is so tired when he gets home). I will have to try a bath with some warm tea. Only have 14 more wks until #2...would LOVE some sleep now.

Are you sleeping during the day while your toddler naps? If so never sleep after three pm it totally messes up your sleeping pattern. After your toddler goes down for the night have some me time. Relax, have a nice long bath with candles and whatever helps you relax (read a book, watch a 'quiet' movie, etc) Hope this helps. :)

Are you married/in a relationship? When I was pregnant with her daughter and couldn't sleep, my husband would massage my feet and hold me until I fell asleep. It worked every time!
