I have trouble sleeping. Always have. But its worse right  now with my husband deployed. I'm currently 19 weeks pregnant and I have my 1 yr old son. My OB said I could take benadryl to help me sleep. I worry about taking anything while pregnant though. Has anyone heard of this? What do you all think?

I took it for my allergies during my pregnancy.

Fine to take, same catagory as Tylenol (B). I used it as needed while pregnant with both my kids, I used the children's benedryl so I could take a smaller dose.

I'm not a fan of taking something to sleep with toddlers around; it can make you too drowsy to be responsive in an emergency.

Exactly.
