Insomnia part of pregnancy????

I work nights like from 4pm to 2am sometimes 6pm to 10pm or 12am.  when I come home from work I don't get to sleep till around 5 or 6 am in the morning,  I wake from anywhere around midmorning to 2 or 3 in the afternoon.  I don't know if I have insomnia and can this be part of pregnancy???  I have felt sick the last couple of days. An a thick white discharge in my underwear,  not a lot but its there. These seem to be the only signs I have right now if I am.  What do u think?????  And yes  it's 545am and am still awake...

How far along are you?  Insomnia in late pregnancy is pretty common due to discomfort.  Nausea can do that as well.
I was admitted for pre-term labor and spent 48 hours in intensive care.  I could not sleep at all since I was attached to too many monitors that beeped plus they were checking my blood pressuree every 20 min, etc.  The hospital gave me a sleeping pill (Ambian) that worked really well.  They said it was perfectly safe during prenancy.

If I calculate from the first day of my last period 3 weeks.  I am waiting to take HPT  test in the next 4 days. And I have only been like this in about the last week.   And I got up at noon today. So I got approx 6 hours sleep today.

I am 23 weeks tomorrow and am having horrible insomnia. I am not worried about anything, so it must be hormonal. I will be discussing this with my midwife at my next appointment.
