Sleep is for the birds...

I have horrible insomnia.


1. due to waking up and having to pee- then I can't go back to sleep, and then I get hungry...and if I don't eat then I start getting nauseous.


2. I work night shift so I flip. I basically am awake a night for a week and then I flip back and then sleep at night for a week.


3. So my flipping nights and days doesn't help and peeing--and it being 2am my body says time to be awake!


4. I am tired all day and so I don't nap so I can sleep at night, but that clearly isn't working.


I have been taking 25mg benadryl for the last week to sleep- and even that's really not cutting it since I still wake up to pee. I don't want to become dependent on benadryl to sleep either.


I didn't ever have the problems of switching back and forth before pregnancy, I can usually sleep through anything- anywhere. I am just so tired. :(


 


Anyone else up all night or have any other cures?!

I'm not up all night but I find myself waking up to every little sound/movement.  I swear if DH exhales loudly it wakes me up, then I have to pee, so I lay there and try to fight it but I can't, so I get up.  Then I lay there for what seems like an eternity before I fall back asleep again.  I haven't seemed to find anything to keep me sleeping until I'm so exhausted I crash.  I actually have been taking my lunch at work and going to my car and cat napping for 20 mins during the day to help keep me alive haha.
