DS was up at 4, so I am pretty much useless and can't get anything done. But I CANT sleep!!

I swore by liquid calcium/magnesium for sleep issues in my last pregnancy.

I hear you. I've been quite wide-eyed from 3-5 AM lately. My DD generally gets fussy in the 4-6 AM hours so I'm one sleepy mama during the day...

Do you think it would work as well if I took it in pill form? I have some sensory issues and they go into overdrive while pregnant and liquid supplemets/meds.. well many liquids... are a no go.<br>
But I would LOVE to sleep <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I wonder if somewhere has a little sample that I can buy to see if I an handle it. I don't want to buy a full bottle and then find out first dose that I just can't do it.

I actually don't mind as long as I am the only one awake. I get to catch up on my favorite websites, do some blogging. If I have any brain energy then I do some work, this is usually with late night insomnia. If I wake up early like 4, then I am not so happy unless I went to bed and was asleep by 9.

I found it worked better in liquid, but still helped in a pill. They had a ton if different flavors, I got a blueberry flavor. Last kind was a mint, tasted just like Maalox.

I wish it were a flavor issue, but it isn't.<br>
I will definately try the pill form and if that isn't effective enough will *try* to suck it up and try the liquid.<br><br>
I don't mind the getting some time to myself part! I actually can appreciate it. But I have always needed 8-9 hrs a night consistently to be able function and not get sick and not getting that becomes a problem for me rather quickly. It was a bummer being the only girl on the floor of my freshman college dorm who actually slept! LOL
