I have no idea what's going on, and being pregnant there's not much I can safely take. I haven't had more than 3 hours of sleep a night for the past month and a half. I am literally at my wits end with this. I cut out all caffeine (with the exception of my prescription for headaches, which I'm careful to ONLY take in the morning), and I backed off on a lot of my sugar intake (although, to be honest, that one doesn't seem to make a difference either way).
At the moment, I'm not in more pain than I can handle, and although baby is moving a lot, he's not bothering me at all. I can get comfortable, and I can even relax, but God help me, I CAN'T EFFING SLEEP! I've tried warm baths, hot showers with the shower head on massage to help my slight back pain (and a massage usually relaxes me fairly well), Benadryl, and Unisom (which, lucky me, just makes me fucking WIRED). I don't eat within an hour and a half of going to bed, and I don't drink much water int hat time, either. I keep my room pretty cool, because if I get too hot, not only will I not be able to sleep, but I'll most likely throw up as well. :(
The medications i mentioned above are the ONLY ones my doctor has said i can use, and I honestly don't know what else to try. I've tried meditation, but by the time I'm relaxed and sleepy, I have to flipping pee, and the whole process begins again. Does ANYONE know something else I can try SAFELY? I'm seriously about to lose what's left of my sanity. :(
