I've never posted on this board, but maybe I qualify? I have one beautiful daughter (10 months old!) conceived through a donor egg, and am now spontaneously pregnant (again) with my OE. 6.5 weeks and yesterday's US showed that I was tracking on time for baby size, heart rate and placement. We are cautiously optimistic.
My question is about sleep meds. I have a call into my midwives as well, but I am desperate. I already had moderate to severe insomnia, waking up 10+times a night etc and have tried so many things to sleep. Usually pregnancy improves the sleeping part for me, but now I am so exhausted that I can barely move during the day and can't fall or stay asleep at night. I've tried unisom, melatonin, Tylenol PM and benadryl. These are supposedly safe, but I am so afraid I am poisoning this kid. They work maybe to get me drowsy a little but that's it.
I was reading in another post about diclegis helping another lady to sleep. I also am dizzy, nauseous, etc. I am just looking for others' opinions on what helped them so I can run it by my midwives. My psych wants me ask about hydroxyzine but the internet def does not like that for pregnant ladies.
Looking forward to get to know this board.
