In brief: No
Many, if not most, pregnant women will have difficulty sleeping at some point during her pregnancy.
Not to worry, the baby will not be bothered by this. In fact, while in utero, the baby is said to go between periods of active sleep (moving) and restful sleep (not moving). Often, it is the baby being active at night that contributes to the restless sleep a woman experiences.
