  • just the lack of sleep alone will cause that it can cause the anxiety even hallucinations you reall need more sleep

  • I had issues with sleep deprivation while pregnant. Have someone (SO maybe) keep an ear out for your older child and get some rest!!! Ask your OB about sleep medications you can take, melatonin is made by your body to synchronize your circadian rhythms. My OB also suggested benadryl, unisom, or tylenol PM (which is tylenol and benadryl). Get some sleep and you (and your babies) will feel better!
