The magnesium will help regulate your blood pressure and also help relax your uterus and you. Take it at bedtime, it will help you sleep better.

I forgot mine for a couple of nights.. I was miserable!
thanks for the tip

Ugh! I am with you, mamas! I am 37 weeks and change, and can't wait to not be pregnant any more so I can actually lay still for 2 hours at a time! I am posting here at 2:30 a.m. because I can't get back to sleep yet. I wish this baby would just come. Before my concern was prematurity, and I never DREAMED we would go this long!
