One of the many sleepless nights

I’ve been having a difficult time trying to get some sleep at nights lately. It could have been from my irregular pattern of sleep. I slept in most of the time especially on weekdays. Another reason I can think of is my growing belly. I can’t seem to find a comfortable position. Oh I really hope our new bed will be delivered now. They promised us by the end of July but it feels like it’s taking forever. I am really counting on it that it will make me feel so much better at night. Anyway, on sleepless nights, I hate to always toss and turn as it will wake hubby up so sometimes I’d get up and get a glass of milk or watch some cartoons or even use the computer. I’m not very wild about the third option for I feel like I’ve seen the whole internet already twice, lol, since on daytime that’s what keeps me busy. But in times like this, I’m left with no other good options. One time something about a tree Irvingia Gabonensis, native to West Africa caught my attention. The fruit as I’ve read is similar to mango and is used for food. But according to modern science breakthrough, the seeds show promise in helping lose weight because of its high fiber content. Well, science is really amazing. But I wonder if like any other products, what are the irvingia gabonensis side effects arising from it.

Try sleeping with a pillow between your knees (or legs). That might help a little too. Have your hubby rub your back before you fall asleep, and you'll be counting sheep in no time. Hope your new bed gets delivered soon too! ;)

I think I had 3 or 4 pillows when I was pregnant and 1 is the body pillow but it didn't work for me. Your OB will probably tell you to sleep on your left side once your tummy is too heavy for you to sleep on your back and prop yourself to a position that you're most comfortable with. I prefer sleeping on my right back then coz I'm comfortable to sleep with that position. Not sleeping well at night is a good preparation once your little one will come out. :)
