In brief: Insomnia

The insomnia itself may not hurt the baby, however if you are taking drugs or substances on your own, they can possibly hurt your baby.
Also being sleep deprived you are more prone to accidents that may end up hurting you and your baby. You should have a long talk with your doctor about insomnia and if the sleep problem persists then request an evaluation with a sleep center.
