i have been taking something to help me sleep for many years,seems like once i got married,i never slept the same again grrrr.i took xanax for quite a few yrs until recently when a dr that im seeing told me that having my addictive backgroung i should-not be taking xanax any longer,so i got off of it.now that im pg i got off the lexapro also.i read somewhere on line that unisom seemed to be the safest to take during pregnancy( i take it every night)do you all take anything to sleep? ive got to get my sleep,.. but i dont want to harm baby or have a baby addicted to sleep aids.any advise?

I take Benedryl or Tylenol PM - my doc says both are fine. (Actually, same medicine in both.)
