Perhaps your physical discomfort is the issue. It's not exactly easy to fall asleep and stay asleep when you have to pee every two hours and you can hardly move in bed because your breasts are so tender. Some of these ailments will only be resolved with time but it may be a good idea to talk to your doctor about any discomfort you are having that is effecting your sleep. Your doctor may recommend medication to give you relief. Common symptoms of pregnancy that cause sleep disruption are:
- back pain
- breast tenderness
- frequent urination
- leg cramps
