I've been having a tough time. it started a few weeks ago actually. Maybe three weeks ago? Maybe four? Of course, having a possible torn meniscus in my knee doesn't help when trying to find a position I can get comfortable in. As long as I'm still, my knee doesn't hurt, but if I'm uncomfortable, I want to move. So frustrating. My doctor doesn't want to use the x-ray machine...for good reason, but if it gets worse, then he wants me to go through an MRI to see what really is going on with my knee. But, from what he could feel, and from my observations and pain complaints, it sounds like a torn meniscus in my knee which could mean physical therapy to having to see an orthopedic. So until after these babies are born, it's uncomfortable nights and painful knee aches for me

I'm not that big yet, but there are some nights that get to be kinda difficult. I have found that if I lay on my side with one knee bent forward (and a pillow under it) some of the pressure is taken off of my hips. My hips tend to hurt during the night for some strange reason - I have always been a side sleeper, so didn't think I would have too much of a problem. I also have to get up one or two times to pee every night! That has been going on for about three or four weeks now - it doesn't help that the doctor wants me to drink a gallon and a half every day!
Compared to you guys this sounds terrible, but I am already having a difficult time getting comfortable to sleep! A couple nights I have had my poor DH sleep on the guest bed because I just can't stand not making a pillow barricade all around myself. I wake up a million times a night to pee or just from the nausea. I just want to sleep!
