  • Maybe try comfort foods like soup, take a nice warm shower then go straight to a dark room. Make sure your in comfy clothes too that always helps make sure its quite or if you need background noise try a fan on low. Hope that helps a little good luck

  • I'm probably wrong but I think fresh air helps a lot! I think it would be worth a try to go for a walk or even sit outside for a while and get some fresh air.

  • I'm sorry I don't have an answer for you; but I can sympathize. I did that with both of my pregnancies at the end. I didn't sleep but 2-3 hours a night (sometimes not even that). It is awful!! Some people say that it is your body's way of preparing you for a newborn that doesn't sleep. So, I'm sorry and I hope you don't have long to go.
