  • when i couldn't sleep my boyfriend would rub my tummy which totally soothed everything or i would take a shower and let the water runny on my belly

  • You can take Tylenol PM, that's totally safe when you're pregnant.

  • I'm prego with baby #5 and when I had troubles sleeping my doc said that I can take 1-2 tablets of benadryl(not sure the spelling).It says to ask a doc on the bottle but my doc(5 different docs too) said with all 5 pregnancies that it was okay...just not to take it all the time.
