 Just wondering if anyone here has trouble sleeping.  If so what do you do? I have tried sleeping pills and stuff before.  It takes me forever to fall asleep then I keep waking up almost every hour on the hour till the 5th time i just give up. Any ideahs on what i can try would be apreciated.  Currently I am only getting close to 20hrs sleep a weak.

Sorry don't know how to help. I'm up a few times a night because of allergies. Meds aren't working and I can't take sleeping pills because i sleep with my 2 year old who doesn't always sleep thru the night.

Valerian root pills always helped me. You can get them at any vitamin store. Now I am on klonopin for anxiety so that has me knocked out at night lol

 I'm no expert, but try taking a warm bath and drinking a glass of wine to help you relax before bed, another great technique my chiropractor suggest was counting backwards from 100, only instead of just counting, envision yourself taking the number down and placing in on a table next to you. It works wonders, I'm usually asleep before I hit 90.

I won't try any sleeping pills until my kid is older.
Ong, if there was anything bad or wrong happen (IE: a fire or DD hurt her self) & no one could wake me up from the sleeping pills.
No. I'll wait.

SEX SEX and more SEX!!  lol..I'm kidding but physical activity will do wonders, not only on your psyche but it will benefit your body, too.  Walking is great.  Not strenuous and doesn't take concentration  due to lack of sleep.  Good luck momma and keep us posted.

I do, all the time My easiest solution was having an infant which keeps me up! Now when I get a chance to sleep there is no problem sleeping because I'm over tired!

maybe all you need is 20 hr a week of sleep. YOu can also call the dr and try a sleep  study session that might help because they can tell you why you are waking. is your thoughts going constantly, mine do which is what keeps me up. THinking of things that I should have done and that I should be doing.
