I am currently at 23 weeks and having both terrible night-time insomnia (falling asleep fine but waking from about 11.30pm) and terrible day-time exhuastion.
I have assessed all of my normal sleeplessness 'triggers' - stress, anxiety, money issues, keeping secrets from my partner, heat - however none have really cropped up as 'issues' at this point in time.
I am generally uncomfortable in bed, and while my tummy is big for 23 weeks, it is not really big enough to be claiming as a sleep hindrance. My skin feels creepy-crawly though, and I just cannot settle once I wake up.
Unfortunately, I also cannot sleep during the day when I lie down for a rest. I am so tired at work that I can barely function, and I feel like I could fall asleep in a loo-break, but once I take some time off or an extended lunchbreak with the intention of catching up on some sleep, I cannot for the life of me actually fall asleep.
Is anyone else experiencing this? Is this a normal pregnancy symptom?
How on earth am I going to get to 34 weeks at work if this is how I feel day in and day out!!??
