I found with my last pregnancy I slept like a log every night from 30 weeks up until I gave birth at 39 weeks.
I can put it down to either a hot milk with milo 30 mins before bed or regular chiropractic visits, or both.

I'm 29 weeks and having the same problem... can't sleep and very broken sleep, I swear I look at the clock every 30 mins!! Plus I get restless legs... i've tried having hot milo and having a realy early dinner so i'm not too full, going to bed at the same time and getting up if i'm wide awake instead of just laying there getting annoyed that i can't sleep... someone told me today that they were seeing doctors about insomnia and one other thing they suggested was to change your pattern, so instead of going to bed and just laying there to get to sleep, try watching tv or reading til your really drowsy, or sleeping in another room or even on the lounge (if it's really comfy!)... i'm just about ready to try anything because i'm not coping with the no sleep, especially cause i'm still working full time!
Also, I've had massive lower back pain to the point i could hardly walk! i normally see a chiro for my neck and back, however, since being pregnant it hasn't really helped my back (i think it got worse!) so went to a physio and i've felt really good ever since!

I had horrible insomnia as well though luckily I wasn't in any discomfort as you op. Nothing I dis helped, just survived off 4-5hrs broken sleep (which is easier if you're not working)
Go figure though, now im still getting that between feeds and although bubs is less than a week old, I am feeling fine. My midwife always said nature has a funny way of preparing you for motherhood just think, not long to go now and hopefully your new baby will make you quickly forget those discomforts!
