I had to move my prenatal appt again (being that I'm still pretty darn sick ) and I was discussing with her about how sleep I think is a big factor in why it's taking me so long to get over things. Basically I'm getting only a few hour chunks of sleep at a time then waking up and unable to get back to sleep. Then I wind up taking 1-2 naps during the day.
She suggested melatonin (possibly valerian root as well as we talked about how once I had taken it at the end of the pregnancy when the mw wanted to calm my prodomoal labor). However I'm reading it's stating it's not safe for pregnancy online. Sigh.
Of course, she also said I *could* take echinachea and I was reading that's not OK during pregnancy either!?! Ugh.
Anyone have experience with any of these?
