That's not good...: Sleep deprivation leads to strange behaviors. Sounds like it's time to see the primary care doctor and/or the ob-gyn doctor to figure out what's causing the insomnia and treat the problem.

See MD: I would see your doctor. Your insomnia could be emotional but i would check your thyroid and other labs. Try avoiding caffeine, tv, in your bedroom after 6 pm. The color blue reboots the circadian cycle so use a lot of blue in your bedroom.

Please let your: Obstetrician know about this promptly. It is not normal. Insure that you are using good sleep hygiene. Retire & rise same time each day. Keep bedroom dark & cool & use only for sex & sleep. Turn off tv. No naps. Exercise regularly but not in late evening. No caffeine for 6 hrs w/i 2 hrs of sleep. Keep dinner moderate sized & finish at least 2 to 3 hrs before sleep. No alcohol or tobacco.Can try.
