i don't know what to do about my insomnia. it has gotten worse and worse. i only sleep about 3-4 hours per night and that sleep is broken up into 40 minute segments.
i have been up since 2:30 this morning. i brought the computer into bed at 4:30 and then just decided to get up for the day at 5:30. lying there was not helping anything. i ended up crying about how my mother in law said i looked huge and how my father in law said our next child will probably be a hellraiser since our first is so good.
i have never experienced insomnia like this before. it's been going on for weeks. i feel like i have tried to remedy it but nothing helps. i've used relaxation/affirmation cds, benadryl, reading, etc. i told my midwife about it and she suggested i get a body pillow. that's done nothing except make me more uncomfortable.
i feel so depressed about it because i know i won't be sleeping at all for the first three months after baby comes. why can't i sleep at all now? i'm wondering if i should see an accupuncturist? anyone else have insomnia like this?
