In the 3rd trimester I'm between abundant energy and falling asleep at 8:30pm. I also have periods of wakefulness. Bodily discomfort, anxiety and an overactive mind can all be the cause. Some also say this is the body's way of preparing you for the impending sleep deprivation of being a new parent.
***What can you do?***
Have a relaxing night time ritual, empty your mind into a journal, ask a support person for a massage, aromatherapy, and limit fluids before bedtime to decrease the likelihood of a full bladder waking you up. ▪
Watch out for what's to come, it's going to be worth the sleepless nights 😊😴🌺
