i am 31 weeks pregnant and this is my first baby... i havent slept in 4 days and am really tired. the baby is very active and just wont let me. i dont know if these medicines will be safe for her. i hear that zypran can seriously hurt or kill the baby but i dont know... i am really nervous... any body know??
If your OB told you that taking it will help you sleep, then odds are that it's safe. Check with the pharmacist if you aren't sure, though. Or call a different OB for a second opinion. I don't know about Zypran, but I've taken Unisom during pregnancy and while nursing before and it didn't seem to have any negative effects on the baby. She actually was a little less active at night, but otherwise was fine. And she woke me bright and early about 8 1/2 hours after I took the pill with lots of activity - and noise after she was born.
