I have been having a hard time getting sleep toss and turn and was wondering if sleepytime tea was ok to take and glad to see there is a community for older moms. If there is anyone out there who is going through 1st time pregnancy it would be great to visit

Unfortunately, the lack of sleep doesn't get much better, just becomes different reasons keeping you awake! Good luck to you. I don't know much about that tea - I guess its an herbal, decaffinated, right? If it works for you, I say go for it - almost anything in moderation will be OK. If you are really in doubt, double check with your OB.

Like pp said I don't think it gets any better! If I'm not tossing and turning I have to get up to go to the bathroom...lol. I wonder how many years it will be before I get a goodnight sleep! I like the sleepytime tea too but someone told me not to drink it. Chamomile can make your uterus contract. I really don't know if its true but I figure why chance it. My doctor said if I am having trouble sleeping its okay to take a tylenol pm. I haven't taken it yet. Just don't really feel comfortable taking meds while I am preggo. Good luck to you!
