  • I would say try to get exercise thru out the day. Like im a severe inomniac. If I dont work out or get some type of physical exertion I cant sleep at all. I've beeen known to stay up til the next day and not get a wink of sleep. Im also pregnant so I do this active Yoga class. helps great, take a shower, lay down a good while before my bedtime and if I realy cant sleep I eat a little something but on the days where I dont do my yoga im like you maybe worse I wont go to sleep at all.

  • Try taking a warm bath and drinking some tea. When I cant sleep I drink Sleepy Time tea and that works like a charm.

  • My OB recommended Benedryl. Yeah buddy.

    You can also try think like chamomile tea, put lavender under your pillow or spray it on there, different relaxation techniques. I liked using sleep cd's that talked you into sleep... very soothing, lol.

  • If you are getting up to go to bathroom at night, try putting a night light in your bathroom so when you get up you don't have to turn on the light.
