    In between a sore lower back (from laying on my side) to bad heartburn.... yep, little sleep. Body pillow little help for me. Now I go to sleep on the recliner in the lounge room and the obstetrician finally gave me prescription tablets for my heartburn. I'm now having the most amazing nights of sleep.

    I have heart burn too... Not fun. Luckily the Rennie indigestion tablets have been enough for me. Instant relief...

    Luckily I haven't had any heartburn but often I get the bed to myself as DH goes and sleeps in front of the TV if he has trouble getting to sleep so then I get to have a row of pillows on each side so when I roll over I don't have to re adjust pillows.

    I've also been having a 1hr nap after work each day. 2 more days of work. #countdown!!

    I'm 15 weeks and definitely struggling with sleep big time! First 12 weeks i slept so much but now I am lucky to get 4-5 hrs a night! I get up for work at 4:00am so try to go to bed early but dosnt happen! Then when I fall asleep I wake up at least 4 times a night to pee! Definitely not fun! Poor DH has been sleeping on the lounge for almost two weeks I've been that bad!

    Oh wow.. You poor thing. I get up around 2-5 times a night, but has only been in the last trimester. My midwife suggested my partner sleep on the couch to help me get a better sleep. Do you find you get a better sleep when your partner is not in the bed?

    My partner snores as well which is a pain as it also wakes me up. Lol.

    I had insomnia for my entire pregnancy. Unfortunately nothing worked to get me to sleep no matter what I tried. My obs tried to make light of it and told me it was just my body getting ready for the lack of sleep I was going to experience once bub came. I've got to say though I got more sleep once she arrived ;-) it was horrid but I learnt to cope on less sleep. I was only getting 3-4 hours a night. I had to tell my boss my news when I was six weeks pregnant as I was all over the place at first from no sleep and they suspected something was up. Hope you get some relief soon.

    At this stage I was having terrible MS and I found that taking Phenergan (prescribed for MS) made me sleep great!! Didn't help that much for the MS but I kept taking it just for the sleep help factor. I think u can take it until 20w if I remember correctly??

    I've been lucky up to now, last two nights been tossing and turning so much with a sore pelvis and also sleep talking. So strange - I've never done that before!

    We had a sleep specialist come to our work once to help with shift work sleeping, and they said yep, your body needs to register a drop in temperature to understand that its time for sleep. They said you can trick your body into thinking this by having a nice warm/hot shower, afterwards you'll feel hot and icky, but soon after that your body will "turn down" its internal heating, and its that dip that triggers the sleep.

    Also, while I like my body pillow/extra pillows, DAMN those things trap some heat. Just worth considering trying a night without them if you're finding you're getting really hot. The discomfort of not having the pillow might be far outweighed by actually staying asleep!

    Good luck!
