I keep waking up in the middle of the night, and my hips and knees are killing me. I can't find a comfortable position. I try lying with a pillow between my knees, but it doesn't help. I just end up rolling from side to side until I can't stand it any more and get up for the day. It doesn't help that my cat has been "crying" in the middle of the night and wakes me up when I actually am sleeping.
Anyone else having sleep trouble?

Yes! Mostly due to two major reasons: 1) DH has seriously had a cold or stuffiness for 2 months now and is a snore-aholic; 2) Our bed is the worst bed of all time. DH had it before I even met him and he got it from his parents who had it for like a week and said it was too firm. We've put egg crates and plush mattress pads on this thing and it is still killing my back, hips, shoulders, and neck--even when I'm not preggers. So, being pregnant pushed me over the edge and we just bought a sleep number bed. It should be here this week sometime. It can't come soon enough! Oh, and I will be heading to the drug store this week to get DH some breathe-right strips in hopes of that helping.
I usually wake up sometime during the night and have an awful time going back to sleep. Usually it's because dd gets up to go to the bathroom and then dh is snoring and I CAN'T SLEEP! I usually end up reading and that makes me fall asleep after a while. Just laying there usually doesn't work. Sadly, I think my solid sleeping time is after dh leaves for work at 5 - it's my snore-free time!
