    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Have had trouble sleeping, friend gave me Sleepytime Extra Herbal by Celestial. It is caffeine free, didn't know if any of you ladies have heard of or used it. If so did it help. Soooo tired at night, just can't fall asleep.

    My DH uses that tea all the time. Not sure if it safe to use while you are pregnant. I have heard to steer clear of most herbal teas.

    I also use that (and love it!), but definitely not while I'm pregnant. You may want to ask your doc about it. It contains valerian, which is not recommended for pregnant women. I think even echinachea is a no-no.

    Will you let us know what your doctor tells you about the tea? I am curious. Also, I have heard that Tylenol PM is safe. Is there a reason you don't like to take that? I've heard it REALLY helps!
