I am not sleeping well at all. If I can get a 45 minute stretch in then Im doing well. I was wondering if anyone is taking anything to help them sleep?
I have anxiety and stopped my meds when I found out I was pregnant. My doctor told me that because I had a depression after my last birth that I should start the anti depressants right now so to help prevent another one. I am all for it, the risks are low so I got a perscription. Unfortunatley, the first day, the baby stopped moving, so I decided that I would wait until she was born. I just cant handle not knowing if its normal for her to move less or not. I'm okay with the decision but the side effect of the pills was also me getting to sleep!!!
When I wake up at night, strangely enough it has nothing to do with anxiety. I dont worry or think about things that worry me then, only in the daytime.
Any suggestions on what to do? Ive heard Tylenol PM works and is safe. I dont see my doctor again until Tuesday and she is pretty unattainable (you have to call L and D for any inquiries), but I am a walking zombie and would really appreciate some sleep TONIGHT. I dont want to go into labour already exhausted!
So what would you do, go back on the pills (as I said they are safe, less than .25% chance of her lungs not developing properly but they are already developed according to the ultrasound last week, and I was warned her movement would slow down ) try Tylenol PM or just suffer through it?
