SO tired but I just can't sleep, desperate. :/

I'm not sure if it has to do with me being pregnant or not, but it's like my brain won't turn off. And it's been almost 3 days since I really slept, and I'm so desperate anyone got any quickfix tips? Please.

  • I don't know of anything, but I am suffering from the same thing. I like to take warm baths or walk around a store thats open 24 hours until I get super tired. Warm milk also sometimes helps.

  • how far are you? I'm 21 weeks and also i was tired and couldn't sleep i felt with tension and i was getting stressed so I ask my husband to give a massage every night to see if i can go to sleep and it works it relaxes me, you should try hopefully works for you good luck

  • I was having a lot of trouble sleeping and realized that even tiny amounts of caffeine in the evening were keeping me awake. If I had half a soda at 6pm, I wouldn't be able to sleep! Could that be your problem?

  • I always went to bed with a book, sounds cliche but it really does work.

  • OMG I feel that same way. I just found out I am pregnant monday I am about 7ish wks along and even before I new this was happening. Its not just that Icant fall asleep i cant stay asleep.

My first check up isnt until next wed. soo i cant even ask if there is something I can take.
