first trimester & xanax
Nataliexx posted:
so I just found out that I'm pregnant (very early) I was addicted to pain killers/opiods. I stopped the day that I found out, went through some major withdrawals for few days but the worst is behind me (thank god) the only problem is that I can't sleep. I have developed severe insomnia that's driving me batty. past 2nights I had to take xanax to fall asleep, I tried Bendryl & Unisome (diff nights) but it didn't work. I know it's advised not to take xanax while pregnant but I need sleep. I'm going insane at night lying there, tossing & turning. anyone out there been through what I am going thru? I just want to sleep and not harm my baby. I have an appt with my OB next Friday & definitely ask what my options are but I was hoping u wonderful mothers out there who write such insightful blogs would have an opinion. and please trust me when I say, after the withdrawals I went thru I will never go back to my old ways.....

Don't take Xanax to sleep again. I know it's tempting, but it can cause real harm to your child.

I haven't had insomnia but cannot get back to sleep when I wake up to pee.

I try a few things that work... try to do something monotonous - I knit/crochet, watch a movie, or read a book.

You can also try some yoga - but light yoga, especially if you've never done it before. Yoga can really quiet your mind... you have to practice a bit before you get it right, but once you figure out how to focus on your breathing, it's amazing how calming it can be. Don't do anything that challenges your balance though.

Good luck!
