thanx for your comments laqdies i'll try the suggestions. i suffered with lack of sleep due to size with my daughter so i know it's part and parcel of later pregnancy. i've been able to rest on the weekends when hubby is home which is great and normally after 2.30am i hqve about 4 hours sleep before my daughter is awake. thanx again..

We have an air purifier and the noise it makes really helps me to sleep deeper. If you can get into a deeper sleep, you will probably get more sleep.

And nap whenever you can. :)

Hang in there!!!

Don't know if you have ever seen a breast feeding support pillow. It is shaped like a "c" and fits around your tummy, hugging your sides to support the baby while you feed him/her. I found with my second child if i laid it beside me and tucked my belly in it a bit and put my top leg over(spooning) it was very comfy. If it doesn't work you have it for breast or bottle feeding when the child arrives so it's not really a waste of money. Let me know if that helps.. Good luck..

i used to used a v pillow, i used to put half under my bump and the other half inbetween my legs, that way i didnt feel like my bump was sort of falling to one side if that makes sense! x
