Real tired
Hi there

I am 35 weeks pregnant and I am really tired.I have trouble sleeping because every position is inconvertable and the baby kicks a lot in the night.I am still working so I can't just go and ly down.
Is there something I can do or take to just get a good nights sleep.

Thank you.

Sleeping tablets are generally not considered a good idea in pregnancy. It would not do any harm to take something for one night, but you would have to get a prescription from your doctor.
