  • I've heard of sleep MD and it says on the box that it doesn't contain any medication. That it's all natural, but really, I'd ask your doctor.

  • 5 HTP is a great supplement but check with your ob first. Try some warm milk...it really does help. Chamomile tea is helpful too. good luck...I feel your pain

  • Valerian root...talk to your ob first, but it will help you to sleep. also St. John's Wart. Valerian smells like sweaty feet so you may have a problem taking it, but it does work

  • this may seem odd but try working ur brain more now i dont mean that in a rude way but i read something from a dr that if u wear out ur brain, it help u to rest, also stress will keep u up, hot milk, can work as well as baths with oils that r safe in preg u will have to check which ones, stay away from tea coffee and fizz drinks,
