Melissa, I had the same problem as you and now it's back again. I'm 16 weeks pregnant and can't get comfortable at night. I go to sleep fine and then wake up 2 hrs later, then I'm up for about an hour or so, then back to bed again, up early. I'm so exhausted. There is over the counter medication you can take that is safe for sleeping, like, benadryl, tylenol pm. I would check with your dr about the tylenol pm, though. I know that benedryl is safe. I think it has something to do with our hormones. They say your supposed to sleep better in your second trimester but not me. Hope you get some sleep.....

not to be the bearer of bad news, but just wait till you hit the third trimester. thats when it really gets tough. everytime i even begin to feel comfortable in a position the baby moves or does something and basically i am tossing and turning all night. not too mention it seems that he does 95% of his movement at night...it's wonderful don't get me wrong, but i swear i almost get motion sickness....lol

Hi, I am having similar problems with sleep....fall asleep okay but wake for loo around 2 ish and then wide awake from there onwards....I think its hormones but also natures way of preparing us for night feeds...good luck and remember it doesnt last forever... ;)_

Hi, My Dr. prescribed me ambien for a sleep aid around 25 weeks pregnant. I had all those problems as well. I tried everything, the over the counter stuff, warm milk, even lavender smells to help get sleepy, none worked. I became very exhausted. The ambien is given to us pregnant folks and works like a dream. You get a full nights sleep. Your first night or two taking it will make you a little drowsy the next day but after that you wake up fine. So good luck!
