Pregnancy insomnia can be caused by a few things such as the hormones racing around your body, getting up frequently to go to the toilet, your mind racing from excitement or nervousness about what is ahead, your baby is a night owl and likes to move around when you are trying to sleep or being uncomfortable and sore from back aches and cramps.
I am fine getting to sleep but when I wake up to go to the toilet about 80% of the time I can't get back to sleep straight away. Some nights I am tossing and turning for 2 hours. It really is annoying. But I found the more frustrated I get, the harder it is to get back to sleep.
I wanted to share with you some things I am doing to get through this annoying part of the night during pregnancy and hopefully it can help you too.
