I'm six weeks too, and I know where the insomnia is coming from. You also have a bad cold, which doesn't help either. What have you tried so far? Can you bundle up and take you and your toddler for a walk in the morning before her nap? More exercise may help you both - her with longer naps, you with sleeping. And the walk may help you clear your head? I don't know how sick you are though so perhaps this isn't a good idea. What about a warm shower/bath before bed and lavender oil (the real stuff!). I got insomnia along the way with both previous pregnancies. I think it's really part of the deal. You'll also realize how much sleep you don't need (you've probably realized that already with your 17mo) Try and not worry about not sleeping and perhaps turn it into "you" time by reading a book or writing in a journal. Good luck!
