Cant sleep

United States
February 5, 2008 12:40am CST
Okay so I cant fall asleep at night anyways between being uncomfortable and the heartburn and blah blah but now on top of that I live in florida and my a/c is not working! It is like 85 degrees in my house right now! I am 29 weeks along so I am a miserable person. I will probably get rich off of mylot tonight because sleep doesnt look like it is going to be in my near future.

Wow, i'm surprised you cant sleep due to the heat, i guess that's hot for you :) Trust me, it's worse being pregnant during an Oz summer, it makes life hell! I'm surprised it's so hot there, aren't you guys in winter? ^_^ I had some similar problems but there are a few things you can do to fix it - go to your local chemist & ask them for heartburn or acid reflux pills - the ones they had here were chewable & did the treat for me every time, i had to take one before bed & 1 in the middle of the night if i woke up but they always made me feel better. Also, a cup of warm milk should help with the sleep & i also used to keep a spray bottle of water beside the bed for if it was hot - then you can spray it on yourself & make sure you have a window open, that worked for me :) I hope that's of some help to you but i didn't get REALLY uncomfortable until after 30 weeks - i hope it doesn't get any worse for you :)

I was pregnant with my daughter through the middle of summer. Most of the country is on winter and we should be but Florida has been exceptionally warm this winter. I have some heartburn pills but cant take them right now because they have me on iron pills. I got my air fixed yesterday thank god. I was never uncomfortable with my first daughter but I am right at 30 weeks now.

I feel your pain! I'm currently 33 weeks pregnant and sleep is non exsistant for me. I'm so tired but when I lay my head down to go to sleep it just dont happen. Its not hot here by any means. We just had a winter storm and its freezing rain outside but its not making my sleep habits any better. I can't wait to have this baby and then atleast I'll have a reason not to sleep :) Hope it gets better for you

We have had very few days that were even cold here. Luckily the guy came to fix my air yesterday. I have seen some pretty cold winters down here but this one has been warm. Last night I finally slept like a rock. If my daughter wouldnt have woke me this morning I would probably be sleeping still.

when i could not sleep and the temp was high and had no A/c..i would sleep on our screened in porch..and if you don't have one sleep on the floor...or at last resort go to a air conditioned vehicle..and be sure you are not in an enclosed area and just run the air cond. and listen to the music..some soft slow tunes...

No porch and being this far along the floor kills my back. I just give up. I am not in the best neighborhood so I am not crazy about going out to the car. I am just so uncomfortable. Maybe I will fall asleep in a few.
