Hi Emma,<br>Do you keep having to go to the loo ?? That happens to me too, I usually get up at about 1am and again at about 4am and then at about 6.30 ish- It doesn't seem to get better!! The key seems to be getting straight back to sleep again. When I can I have a good nights sleep, but if I let myself wake up properly then I have had it and I am awake for hours!! (Keep thinking about baby and things!)<br>The books all say this is normal, but can be annoying I know.<br><br>Cammomile tea is good if you can't get back to sleep..but means getting out of bed!! I have also found that getting up and tidying the kitchen helps me get back to sleep-( but I am very weird and obviously need professional help!!)<br><br>Well-I suppose our little darlings will be keeping us up every three hrs or so when after they arrive so we should probably get used to it!<br><br>Take care and rest when you can!<br>Lots of love<br>Kirsty<br>xx

Hi There<br><br>Just to let you know I also suffer I can't sleep an whole night through without waking up. I get up about 3/4 times in the night for the toilet and then I go back to bed. What I have found is when I go to bed I lie on my side but the baby starts kicking so I lie on my other side and then it kicks so I just have problems getting comfy because I think I am squashing the little one. I am sure when the baby/babies in other peoples cases are here we won't sleep straight through for some nights so I guess this is just preparing us.<br><br>Love<br>Shell.<br>24wks 6d pg<br>xx
