It's not an herb, but 1/4-1/2 a Unisom is safe to take, and it also helps with nausea.

A calcium/Magnesium supplement works well for me.  I actually consider it a sleep aid and take it at night about an hour before I go to bed.

 

 I have a couple of times taken Tylenol PM, when the pregnancy insomnia was kicking my butt in the very beginning. I normally don't take anything for anything, but the lack of sleep was becoming a problem a couple of times.

Calm Forte by Hylands works wonders to help me get to sleep or the kids one for the kiddos also works amazingly. It costs less than $10 and is safe since it's homeopathic.

thanks mamas!!!  i have some of those items already in my house so i'll try them out.

 

last night i did not get out of my bed, even when i woke up having to pee. i may have woken up a few times, but not getting out of my bed kept me from being awake 2+more hours in the middle of the night. :D
