Hi ladies! At my appt on Wednesday, Darling Husband ratted me out to our OB by letting her know I am constantly up in the middle of the night for several hours. (Actually, I love the guy as I forgot to bring it up during the appt)
She told me to take a Benadryl before bed, to help me stay asleep (and deal with the rhinitis) and break the insomnia cycle- she says if I continue to wake up and not be able to go to sleep, it creates a habit that will continue throughout the pregnancy and is not healthy.
Now, I’m not one to take meds (and was worried even about this one), but this has really helped me the past few nights. The downside that she told me about is that you wake up very mildly hungover, which is true, and I drink extra water and am fine in a few minutes.
Please speak to your own doc before doing this (I’m not a doc, don’t take advice from the internet, yada yada yada) I just wanted to pass on the info for those who are having difficulty staying asleep outside of the peeing multiple times a night 🙂
