I am not able to sleep and stay asleep so I have turned to tylenol pm. It kills the muscle pains and helps me sleep.

I listen to my iPod (which ends up keeping me awake!) or surf the internet on clothing & shoe sites until I feel like I'm going to fall asleep.

try sleeping pills or natural teas. they seem to help people but some people get addicted to them so be careful.

I usually get on the computer when I can't fall back to sleep, but if I really want to go back to sleep I start reading a book and it works every time.

At 2AM EST, if I am still up I get off the computer and watch some (a few minutes) TV. Then a cup of Sleepy Time tea, makes me ready for bed. With or without the radio I am off to sleep in no time. Most days I just get in bed a fall fast asleep.

I grab my phone and cruise the internet or play Words w/Friends when I can't sleep. Or, I go pee  ;) Since being pregnant, it seems like I always need to pee, so if I'm awake I might as well get it out of the way lol.

I've been suffering from insomnia for as long as I can remember....even if I do fall asleep (which is usually a miracle), I wake up about an hour later...wide awake! I usually check my emails on the pc or get on with some art work, like painting or drawing. Most mornings I see the sun come up and the birds start to chirp. Unfortunately, by about 11am I am so dog-tired, I could drop down in a heap! I am going to try the Tylenol PM as a previous member suggested.

When I can't sleep I will usually get online, maybe play a game or watch a movie if there is anything that catches my eye on TV. I really like to read so usually I'll read some news articles and tire my eyeballs until I get tired enough to sleep :)

I will either watch tv or get on my laptop, or just listen to music until I can fall back to sleep. And if I can't do that I will get on up and start getting ready for the day (depends on what time it is in the morning).
