Drinking warm milk is actually bad for you. Try taking a warm bath with lavender scents, don't drink any caffeine after 2-4pm, depending what time you go to bed. A maternity pillow may really help take any pressure off your back and joints. If it becomes too worrysome, call your doctor, you may have a more serious condition.

Hi Sarah,



My name is Stephanie. I am also pregnant with my 2nd and have some of the same problems you are having. I have notice that I am hungry before I go to bed so  I have a bowl of Sherbert Ice cream. It also helps the baby calm down. She is way to active for me. On the sleeping I take 2 benadryl before I go to bed. That helps me a lot. You can also try taking Tylenol PM if you prefer. Also try taking your shower or a warm bath before you go to bed. I hope these work for you. Thanks
