    My partner snores as well which is a pain as it also wakes me up. Lol.
    I wear ear plugs every night. Been doing so for almost 10yrs and can't sleep without them.

    That's a good tip about the body temperature... I might save my shower till I'm ready for bed and see how I go. I have been tired throughout the day but haven't been napping.. Trying to save my tiredness for night.. But it seems like no matter how tired I am I still can't sleep.

    I don't think I could live without my body pillow at the moment. Being nearly 37 weeks pregnant, it causes way too much strain on my belly without it

    Has anyone used lavender? Is it safe during pregnancy? As I know a lot of my mum friends use lavender to help their children sleep.

    I hear you Cassieh, I am 37 weeks too. but last night I was desperate and TBH, it was not the most comfortable of sleeps, but I did sleep through and slept deeply. Can you maybe just use a single normal pillow under your bump for support?

    Hopefully the shower helps lull you into a good sleep, good luck!

    Cassie maybe you should nap if u have time. I have been sleeping better at night since I re started my after work nap.

    Also I've been reading Save Our Sleep and it talks about how much harder it is to get an overtired baby to sleep. I guess the same applies to adults.

    I think I could get away with one pillow... Would be easy for me to manuever at night as well as I'm tossing and turning.. The body pillow seems to get caught up in the sheets lol. In the mornings I don't need the pillows, it's like bub is curled up in a nice position, but at night it feels like any position hurts and puts strain on my belly.

    I'll try having a nap tomorrow and see how I go. Very true about the overtired part.. Got really bad lower back pain tonight not fun! Do any of you feel like you have a shortness of breath sometimes as well??

    You poor thing... you should try eating like some of the other mums have suggested... I was up every 2 hours last night going to the toilet, but luckily I can go back to sleep relatively quickly.. Just getting to sleep that's the hard part lol!

    I've had days where I went without any sleep, but I've noticed that whenever I take my prenatal vitamins, its lights out till I have to pee in the night... There's a lot of tossing and turning cos she's descending but you know, there are good day and bad days, and I've noticed that if I eat moderately, I get better sleep.

    Also, if you DO feel sleepy during the day, just go with the flow and doze off. Get sleep whenever you can. (HUGS)
