For me, the sleepless nights have started back again. I know it is just my second trimester and i should be more energetic than my first trimester but things are not working that way. It was okay until last week, maybe i spoiled my routine during my week off from work. I was watching movies most of the nights after my daughter went to bed and now here i am trying to sleep but see the sleep nowhere near.
Other reason may be that i feel really dis-comfortable when lying down on bed and trying to sleep. As the baby is growing, my movements and sleep positions are becoming limited. I put pillows between my legs and thighs and that helps relieve some tension between my lower back and stomach. Other thing i tried doing is keeping the wedged pillow under my stomach, just a little part at this time and it works sometimes. Drinking a warm cup of milk sometimes helps. I have also massaged my head a few times before bed with warm coconut oil, it didn’t do much. Other thing i suspect is my tea intake, i take tea twice in the day, once with breakfast and then in the evening after work.
As nothing seems working persistently, other option i am thinking of is to go to a massage therapist for my lower back pain and my leg pain, they are just making my body too uncomfortable to function properly and rest. And, last but not the least option, the doctor is always the second God. 🙂
