Naya Rivera has been missing alcohol so much during her pregnancy that she often fears she may have “sleep drank”.

The 28-year-old Glee actress and her husband Ryan Dorsey announced they were expecting their first child together back in February.

But as her pregnancy progresses, Naya has found abstaining from both alcohol and nicotine harder and harder.

Talking about her second trimester in a new post for’s Moms and Babies blog, Naya wrote: “During this time I had many a vivid dream about martinis and the occasional cigarette that felt so real I found myself panicking when I awoke thinking that I must have sleep smoked or drank. I didn’t of course, but was deeply repressing my urge for my old life!

“Yes, it was amazing to finally not have to deal with the misery and discomfort most women face in their first trimester. But how awful is it to feel like your old self again, but not be able to participate in any of those fun activities you once took for granted?”

Naya’s romance with Ryan has been something of a whirlwind, with the pair marrying after just a few months of dating.

However, Naya told fans in the blog post she and her spouse have been struggling in the bedroom as her bump continues to grow.

“Things like sex with my husband became a bit odd for me due to the fact that I was now limited to about two positions in order to not squash — as my husband puts it — ‘it’s roof’ or have the baby (my belly) staring him in the face,” she said. “I feel like men are constantly imagining their baby winking at them when they make love to their pregnant wives thus making sexy times more few and far between.”
