Sleeping in Separate Rooms During Pregnancy

Did You Sleep in Separate Beds During Pregnancy?

Lucy and Ricky may have been onto something when they kissed each other good night and then got into their own beds. Nearly every expectant woman agrees that sleepless nights are part of the pregnancy journey. From relieving herself on an hourly basis to shifting sides, a mama-to-be can make a ruckus between the sheets as she tries to get comfortable. Unfortunately, it can make for a tired lady and often a grumpy pop. Men who have nothing stirring in their bellies also have to deal with the restless nights and sometimes find solace on the couch or in the guest room. Did your man move when you were large and in charge of the bed?

we have a cal king and my husband sleeps like a rock so we are in the same bed...however if he were the one that was prego i would want to sleep in another bed. I am the lightest sleeper ever and if he woke up every hour like i do now, i would too and i would not be too happy about it. i can see how it happens

We upgraded from a queen to a cal king so we've got plenty of room. Plus, I need my husband to calm me down when the baby keeps me up kicking, and to calm me down when I get leg cramps.

I'm with a lot of these women, I was only comfy on the recliner in the living room. My husband hated it, he'd rather I be in bed with him (a sleepless night during pregnancy wouldn't be much different than my normal nonsleeping nights) but I just could not find a comfortable spot on our entire king size bed!

When my mom was pregnant with my brother, she was huge, and her back always hurt her. She slept in a recliner as much as she possibly could since that was the only thing that would help her back. If I was pregnant, I would do whatever I could to keep myself comfortable. And honestly, if the bed was most comfortable for me, but my husband couldn't deal with my moving, I would tell him to go sleep somewhere else and stop complaining ;)

MonkiChriz — When I was pregnant with my son I used to get charlie horses in both legs in the middle of the night and be paralyzed and screaming. My husband became an expert on how to get rid of them. Thankfully, I haven't had one this time around. SO painful!

If I have to carry the kid, he's gotta take care of me! =) Like when I woke up this morning with a pregnancy related charlie horse. I elbowed him to wake up and make it go away. He rolled over and fell asleep afterwards. He's such a good husband!
