Sick of Insomnia

I have been suffering from insomnia for the past two months. I've stopped taking naps and it seems to help a little bit but I'm tired of tossing and turning all night. My poor husband doesn't get very good sleep because i'm constantly nudging him because of his snoring that won't let me go back to bed. Any ideas of what I can safely do while being pregnant to help get a better nights sleep? Much appreciated!

 Can you sleep in a separate room from him? Sometimes this helps. It may be his snoring that's keeping you from falling asleep. He may need to have a sleep apnea test.

Also tell yourself that even if you don't go to sleep, you must remain still, so that your body can rest. Take a  deep breath, slowly breathing in long as you can, then slowly breath out slowly as long as you can. Repeat. Sometimes this helps. Good luck.

We do have a guest bed that he will sleep in once a week for us to catch up on sleep. My insomnia has been a lot better lately though thankfully so it's not as bad but like just the other night I was up from 2:30am-7pm wide awake. I do try to lay for awhile cause I remember hearing something about what you said with your body resting.

I think i'm allergic... ;) I don't do actual work outs but running around all day with my three year old I think gets me a fair share of it.

Maybe it's time for a new mattress or pillow?

We just bought this mattress brand new in January but my pillow is kind of old. I do usually feel achy when I wake up in the morning so maybe it is just that i'm uncomfortable.
