Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

When I was around 24 weeks I had problems sleeping too.  I got a body pillow, placed it under my tummy and between my knees and slept on my side.
Yea it maybecome more difficult to sleep onnyour stomach from this point on because of the baby growing so rapidly. you  may have to sleepon your side. A pillow between your knees helps relieve back pressure. I had problems sleeping and my doctor told me that I could take bendryl to help me sleep but not todo it everynight
once i do get to sleep it only lasts for about 4 hours then bathroom or eating time, thats our body training us for the days to comeget as comfy as you can then its time to wake up!
