    I need help I am having a hard time getting to sleep at night. I am just so uncomfortable in my own skin that I can not get a good nights sleep. I try 6 pillows all around me between my legs under my belly but it's not helping. It's so frustrating because I already go to the bathroom a lot at night but to never be comfortable . If anyone has any tips please let me know thank you. Oh I failed to mention I'm ONLY 11 weeks and 4 days but I'm really showing already.
