1743306 tn?1332448387 Another day of not being able to sleep. Husband has an overnight job now and I'm still trying to get used to sleeping without him. Took a test yesterday and it was negative, so I'm going to say that I am out this month. If I don't get a positive just a few days before my period, then it usually means that it didn't happen.
Avatar f tn So I am only 4 weeks pregnant. And I have horrible insomnia. Generally I take a benadryl(no name brand) to help me fall asleep. But I just recently found out I'm pregnant. And I'm not sure if it's ok to take. What do you guys think?
Avatar f tn I suffered from insomnia before I got pregnant. My first trimester I had no problem sleeping because I was always tired. Now at 32 almost 33 weeks I fall asleep between 11:30-12:00 like I did before I got pregnant but wake up between 2-3 and don't get back to sleep til 5 and have to be up by 7. It really is a pain and I can't take my meds for it because it lowers my son's heart rate too much.

Avatar f tn Is it possible to developeople any sleeping disorders while pregnant. I have had bad knee problems since age 10 n I'm almost 19 so quite a while. I'm 16 weeks pregnant I find it hard to sleep during the night due to having to go to the bathroom n my doc told me to stay off my back when laying down to mainly stay on left side. If you need to move lay on the right aide for 5-10 mins then switch back. I have a bunch of pillows supporting my back laying on my left.

Avatar f tn Hey everyone!! I recently found out I'm pregnant with my second child. Estimated at about 6 weeks & the last couple nights I have had the worst insomnia! I will wake up at around 2am & be wide awake for hours which would be fine except I have a 3 year old & work full-time so I kind of value my sleep. Has anyone else had this problem? If so, was there anything that helped you fall back asleep?
Avatar f tn Im 14+2 weeks pregnant with baby number 4, and for the last 3 or 4 weeks i just cant sleep at all, i never experianced this with any of my other pregnancys, any 1 else suffering with this? Or has any tips?
Avatar f tn Girly thats all apart of being pregnant! Lol.. at least for me it was.. I could HARDLY sleep all through my pregnancy. But yea just like Chantal said try avoiding sweets and caffenine a few hours before bedtime and I would eat a turkey sandwich an hour before bed.. turkey has something in it that makes you tired. Hopefully this helps!
Avatar f tn Is it possible to become insomniac when pregnant. I'm only at the beginning (4 weeks) but lately, I can't sleep. Hardly at all any way. Like for instance, last night I couldn't fall asleep I went to bed at 10. It was 11:30 before I fell asleep. Then I was up at 3:30am wide awake and haven't been able to sleep since. I want like this with my first child so I'm a little confused.
Avatar f tn Hey I am pregnant w my first child I'm seven weeks along and I'm 22 and although I'm very happy I can't sleep it's killing me cause my job drains me any suggestions to help ??
Avatar f tn ve been having insomnia ever since I got pregnant. I never had sleep problems before getting pregnant and realized after 3 wks of getting very little sleep that I needed to do something about it and I was 11wks at the time. I researched online, and decided to start taking Unisom sleeping pills. I advised my Dr that I started taking it and she didn't bat an eye. I'm now almost 35 wks and still cannot sleep the whole night without taking a pill. Try it!
Avatar f tn I'm 38 weeks and experiencing the same thing. My doctor told me it's normal to have trouble sleeping when pregnant and not to worry. I'm on bed rest so I pretty much just relax all day.
