Hi. The first thing you should try for a good sleep is to relax, deep breathing exercises and meditation. Just try these alternative measures and see. But if you are really upset with disturbed sleep and it is also affecting your work, then you may take certain sedatives like Zolpidem, after consulting your treating dr. as it is a category B drug and can be taken safely during pregnancy and that too in 2nd trimester. It has short effect for 6-8 hours and there will be no hangover as well. Thanks.
