    Default How many expecting Mum's are experiencing difficulty sleeping?

    Hi Ladies,

    My name is Bec and I am currently studying with the International Maternity Institute to become a Maternity and Child Sleep Consultant. As part of my course I need to be involved with forums and conduct several surveys over the course of my study. I was hoping you may be able to help me with my first survey which is 'Sleep Issues During Pregnancy'.

    If you are experiencing any type of sleep problem ie. trouble falling/staying asleep, frequent bathroom trips, waking through the night wide awake etc etc please drop a quick line to let me know - I sincerely appreciate all of your help on this.

    Bec

    I'm having difficulty in sleeping when I was pregnant with the 2nd baby. Mainly because I can't sleep on my side all the time I feel numbness every time.

    Sleep has never been a friend of mine, but it has gotten a lot worse. I'm 32 weeks and have all kinds of sleep issues.

    This ^^ my main issue is really bad RLS. I have had nights (yes plural!) Of literally no sleep. It's better now with magnesium being taken at night, but the dose to completely kick it would probably not be safe. I also am on iron tablets (low iron is also linked to rls apparently, though I'm on them for low haemoglobin). Still lucky to get 5hrs.

    Currently 34 weeks pregnant and sleep is shocking, rolling back and forth every 20 mins - half an hour all night because of rib pain. I tend to sleep better when I have a day time nap, probably because I'm so tired from the night before.

    Currently 41 weeks pregnant & sleep wasn't a problem up until about a month ago. Toss & turn all night long & constantly getting pains in my hips & down the leg I'm lying on. How I would love to sleep on my back or just lie on it & feel comfortable!!!!

    Hi there! I'm only 9 weeks pregnant and struggle getting to sleep every night even though I feel very tired. I then sleep lightly and wake up several times - usually because I'm too hot or need to pee. Hope this helps =)
