4-year-old waking up during the night...

I have a 4-year-old son who has been waking up at least twice during the middle of the night. He wakes up between the hours of 2AM-5AM & he'll come into my room asking to watch tv or lay with me. It wouldn't be an issue, but getting him to go back to sleep is usually a struggle & ends up with both of us losing some sleep. To make matters worse I'm also a chronic insomniac & due to be having my second son in just ten days so sleep is something I need. When he first started waking up he would be up for a few minutes then go right back to sleep & then he was only waking at least once.

My husband suffers from sleep apnea which also runs in both of our families (along with insomnia too) & after doing research my son has many of the symptoms of sleep apnea. My husband was diagnosed via sleep study & we were considering getting our son checked out for it. He has an appt with his pediatrician coming up in a week so I plan on expressing my concerns. My question is: has anyone ever had a child with sleep apnea or a sleep disorder & how did you deal with it?
