For me, naked with fans !! I'm only waking up twice a night to pee, but I am super uncomfortable and have a hard time falling back asleep. My joints are achy and I have restless legs. I've got tons of pillows which help, but I'm
waiting eagerly for my first non pregnant comfortable sleep!

Well the truth is not much! I am having horrible horrible pain in my left hip/top of leg. Not to mention the lower back pain is killing me,making it really really hard to get comfortable.

I fall asleep easily after a long day. I sleep on my left side with a pillow between my legs.
I do wake up at 4 AM each morning though. It always happens to me when preggo. Body must be gearing up for the night time feedings...

I am so uncomfortable sleeping sometimes! And poor DH... he loves to cuddle as we fall asleep but lately, I don't want to cuddle. Get up to pee 3 times a night.... but no complaints!

Terribly. But thats mostly because of the heat. It's over 100 F here, plus NASTY humidity, and we have no A/C. Last night I was on the floor of the kids playroom, in a sports bra and undies.

I am normally a side/belly sleeper, but the only way to stay cool enough to fall asleep is to lie flat on my back with my limbs spread open wide! Not good for me or baby to lie on my back, but I can't help it. My body is so sticky with sweat I can't stand to sleep on my side!

And getting up to pee at least once a night Wink

Vacation was ROUGH. It was a smaller full bed (we only have a queen but this full seemed extra small) and it was uncomfortable. And from walking most the day my right hip/groin/round ligaments were really really aching. By the last night of vacation I was up like 5 or 6 times that night and as sad as I was to leave vacation I was soooo excited to go home and sleep in my bed. At home I'm sleeping much better still aching in my right hip but I can get comfortable on my side or kind of wedged on my stomach. I get up once or twice to pee

Pretty good actually..pls don't throw anything at me Smile Once I fall asleep I sleep well with my body pillow all cuddled up. I am up 2-3 times a night to pee but I usually fall right back asleep once I go to bed. My biggest problem is that I have to wake up...I would love to sleep in every day but my little guy does not allow that.

Oohhh definitely naked with a fan, but I keep a sheet handy in case I get the chills lol! My doc actually reccomended sleeping naked, to be more comfortable. I'm usually a stomach sleeper, but since that's a no go from now until delivery I'm finding my right side to be the most comfortable.

Usually on my right side, that is where I am most comfortable since I can't sleep on my stomach Sad And the only time I am up to pee is if Kay wakes me up with her noises or some other noise. Most of the times I can sleep through the night without waking up to pee.
