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.
