Sleeping

I am 19 weeks pregnant and suffer from insomnia. My doctor told me it would pass but it is only getting worse. I'm exhausted all of the time but just can't sleep. Is there anything I can take? Also I can not find a position to sleep in anymore that is comfortable....

  • Drink chamomile tea to settle down and try sleeping on your left side with a body pillow. But don't fight it and make yourself miserable. Try sitting and crocheting or reading. Something mellow and peaceful.
