Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that you could try Unisom or Benadryl sleep aids.  If those didn't work, I would consider prescribing something like Ambien for a few days.
There are also lots of other things to do, such as exercise in the afternoon (not right before bedtime) avoid caffeine and try herbal teas.
Warm milk (it has to be warm) really does have a sedative effect.
Good luck!
Dr B

I find that I sleep way easier on the couch then in my bed. Maybe you should give that a try?

I use ear plugs when I sleep it helps me a lot. I wake up constantly because I have to use the restroom and have trouble falling asleep. Don't use medication unless you absolutely have to.

Since you are so early there isnt any sleep aids normedicine you can take nor would you want to take. Warm milk, deep breaths, pillows in between your legs/knees, along with keeping yourself cool could help. Im 9 weeks today and barely sleep but some of these things I have listed have helped for a extra few hours of much needed sleep. i
