I am exhausted all day and then can't sleep at night. And my dreams are crazy as well. No ambien for me either. Is it approved for pregnancy?

I can't stay awake once I lay down! But I am having crazy dreams as well, so I wake up from time to time.

I need something. I dont sleep well at all. But I do sleep better on my couch than any where else. They give you ambien in the hospital to sleep while in labor at times so totally safe. Im thinking of talking to my dr about it

I'm not taking ambien but I'm taking unisom. I take it for ms but as an added bonus it helps me sleep better. I don't sleep well ever. Well, I take that back. I sleep great if dh isnt around! ha! I am a very light sleeper. Any movement he makes wakes me up. He also tends to snore or breathe very loudly and that wakes me up also. The neighbors go to work at 5:45 and that wakes me up... So all in all I don't get a lot of long stretches...

I do unisom as well for nausea, which has been tested a ton! So maybe you could try that?

I decided to use my B6 and Unisom last night- help curb the nausea in the AM and try and get some sleep.. I only took a 1/2 tab of unisom but I am SOOO groggy today. I'm not a huge fan.

I am finding that I'm sleeping better than ever. I'm having really vivid dreams and I often wake up in the morning and don't know where I am. Sorry about your insomnia

No insomnia here.... I am already exhausted ... I really dislike the exhaustion period of pregnancy. I went to bed at 9pm last night slept like a rock!

Lucky Sara! I am exhausted.. don't get me wrong.. but I can't sleep. It's annoying. I'm SOOOO tired.. and then when I get in bed I just lie there uncomfortable and restless

Not ideal Maddie. I am like that normally- takes me 20-30mins to fall asleep. So this is a welcome sign even though I could pass out right now and its 830pm. Hope you start settling a little easier !

Honestly I sleep the best after DH has gone to work in the AM. The last couple days he's gotten out of bed at about 4:10 or so... so from 4-8 or 9 I sleep better. I might need him to sleep elsewhere for a while Wink

The past couple of days I have been sleeping better and not needing to take ambien but when insomnia kicks in it is horrible and I know this is nothing compared to how it is going to be in the last weeks of pregnancy. I order a raw b-complex Garden of Life | The Vitamin Code | Single Nutrient Formulas that really helps with my energy level. I also take a food based prental Complete Prenatal System its amazing how this stuff makes a difference. Morning sickness also kicked in so maybe thats helping me sleep better since i expell all my energy in the restroom lol
