I'm 36 weeks and I can still roll over on my own, but it's SO painful-- and it's only so painful in the middle of the night, too. I'm ok during the day! For me the pain is right in the center of my pelvic bones. I can still lift my hips off the bed, and I've found that if I do (only putting them down when I'm on one side or the other) it's a lot less painful. But yeah, triplets is different, so it's no wonder you feel this way!! Hang in there. I've heard a lot of women talk about this, and it DOES get better very suddenly... right after you deliver. :)
I hate to say this but I think that it is something that you just have to deal with. I am almost 36 weeks and I am so uncomfortable. I am really tired all the time but I kind of dread going to bed at night because I know sleep will be hard to come by. This is my second pregnancy and I know that my first was the same. A good body pillow does help some and I know that all of the discomfort is a very very small price to pay for the child I will have, but right now, things are a little bit tough!

So do you remember if you get to a certain point or size where its just all downhill? I wonder if its going to be like this from now until I deliver and I just have to deal with it or if there's anything I can do. I have a general achiness in my bones and my bump is so heavy its not cooperating with me. You would think it would bother me more during the day just because of gravity and the weight directly on my bones but so far its only at night.
I know how you feel. I hit 20 weeks Tuesday and its like all of a sudden I don't sleep well. Last night I woke up due to being hot but I put the body pillow on the other side of me (instead of between hubby and I) and now I use hubby as a human body pillow to fall asleep then roll over on the real pillow through the night. So far its working I slept pretty good now for 4 nights.

I'm having a lot of trouble sleeping and getting comfortable at night. I'm 28 weeks and huge and I think my size is a large part of the issue. I'm at the point where I can't roll over on my own. I grunt a lot and usually have to pull on something like the bed or sheets or my husband to move. It feels like I don't have any strength in my core/pelvis/hip sockets to lift myself or even roll. I'm not in pain or uncomfortable during the day but this exercise is almost painful and uncomfortable at night - mostly because it interrupts my sleep and my husband's and takes a few minutes to get comfortable again. Has anyone experienced this? Either in this pregnancy or the past? Is there anything I can do about it? I'm open to any suggestions. Thank you!
