In brief: Sleep during pregnan
Depending on the weight gain, any accompanying back problems, stress, and how far into the pregnancy, women may have insomnia and occasionally odd dreams.
There are many behavioral interventions that can help with comfort, reducing the number of times you have to go to the bathroom, etc. And dreams about your baby are not unusual, don't interpret them
