Not sleeping

Anyone have some good sleep remedies because i'm just not sleeping well at night. I can't take one more night of restless sleep. Do you think the doctor would consider giving me sleeping pills even though i'm pregnant?

  • Some doctors will actually prescribe sleeping pills, but they are NOT good to take during pregnancies.. Especially in the third trimester.
    I am almost 31 weeks pregnant, and I toss and turn all night basically. Nothing has seemed to help me.

  • I am also 31 weeks and have the same problem. I take a benydrly and that atleast helps me get atleast 6 hours of a good nights sleep but once I wake up it takes forever for me to get back to sleep. Hopefully you can find something that will help you because I completely understand. My mind just wonders on things that I need to get done before she gets here. Its aggervating I know!!

  • Unfortunately, that is going to happen. Use the time to organize your dresser or closet or some winding project you haven't had time to do. Once, I cleaned out all the picture boxes, and got years of photographs into an album. It took a little while, cuz we have loads of pics, but those restless nights didn't get wasted on tossing and turning.
