    Welcome to Motherhood!

    I didn't sleep well at all through my entire pregnancy. In the first trimester it was nausea that kept me awake. In the second it was plain old excitement. In the third I was knackered but had leg cramps/was too big to get comfy/ always hopping up to the loo. Then I gave birth and I was onto nightfeeds, and now, even though Olivia sleeps through from 7 till 7, I STILL WAKE UP to check her.......!

    I don't reckon I have had a full unbroken nights sleep in 14 months...........

    So sorry to hear you are having trouble sleeping. I have that on some nights but most nights seem okay. I have to make sure that I'm really tired before going to bed or else I spend all night lying awake too. Try doing some light exercise maybe? That's all I can recommend... I have noticed I sleep a lot better if I've done yoga or gone for a long walk or been swimming than if I didn't do any sport.
