    Default Sleeplessness and Worry at 30 Weeks

    I am 30 weeks pregnant and lately I have been finding it very hard to fall asleep and stay asleep. At first I thought it could be restless legs or just being over tired but now I really feel that it's because I am so worried about everything!

    I worry about being organised, worry the fact that I won't be earning an income and feeling guilty that I am placing all expenses onto my partner, I feel bad that I am not pulling my weight but everyone is telling me I need to slow down.

    All these changes are really hard on me as I have always strived to be independent and be able to do everything I set out to do. It's making me quite tired and emotional.

    I am looking forward to having our baby boy and he was planned, but I am finding it really unfair that I couldn't enjoy the first 17 weeks of pregnancy because of a high risk scare and now not being able to enjoy the last trimester because I am tired and worried all the time.

    Does anyone have any advice, or have been feeling the same way?

    i felt the same first time around, with the stress of trying to save money, since i knew i couldnt get maternity leave.
    this time im worried i wont cope with a toddler and newborn.
    i think its normal, its scary to not know whats going to happen
