no sleep


I have been having trouble sleeping for MONTHS.... It either takes me hours to fall asleep (going to bed at 11:30 and not falling asleep until 3:00 or so!) or I fall asleep pretty quick and then I am up five and six times in one night. I never realized how much not having a good night's sleep can affect a person! There have been times where I thought, "If I could just fall asleep and stay asleep, I'd need a full week, just to catch up!" Someone suggested Benadryl 4 days ago~and I think I may have found my new best friend!! Tuesday night I took it about a half hour before bed and when I woke up Wednesday morning, I realized that it was the first time I had slept through the night in about 3 months!! I can't seem to shack the "hangover" feeling I have in the mornings though. But, I'll take an hour of walking in a daze over no sleep anyday!! For all of those that are going to suggest that I see my doctor, don't worry.... I'm making an appointment for this coming week!
But, for now, Benadryl at bedtime for me:)

I've been taking it off and on to sleep during this pregnancy. I'm glad you've found something that works for you. The only thing I suggest is not taking it every night for too many nights in a row. Every time I take it for more than 3 nights in a row and then DON'T take...it is an AWFUL night. It takes EVEN LONGER to get to sleep and even when I do sleep I wake up a ton or don't feel rested at all. There's my 2 cents=) Can't wait to see you sunday!
