Beat Jetlag or stay on UK time?

Hello, I am 15 weeks pregnant and flew to the US (San Francisco) yesterday landing at 3pm local time. There is a 7 hour time difference. I went to sleep at 8pm and have now woken up at 3am.

My question is, I'm only here until Weds, should I desperately try to go back to sleep (I feel pretty awake) and get into US time, or just sleep a similar pattern for the next 2 nights making it easier to adjust when home?

I am writing this also near where you are at 3am, exact same timings except I woke at 2am 😭 I'm hoping to nod off again for a bit soon...

Definitely local in my opinion. I change my watch from moment get on plane.

What Buster said. I always change my watch on the plane too, first thing I do. We flew to Australia last week and got straight into local time. Fortunately we were able to sleep on the flight over which helped enormously though.

Well it's 17.37 here, I've been up since 1.45am and still going 😂 got a dinner and show to get through tonight before I can go to sleep, hopefully I will be able to sleep in longer tomorrow! Hope you're ok now op!

I hope the ones of you who are suffering, are feeling better? I didn't really properly adjust and woke up at 3am every morning 😓
Now home and had a good nights sleep, so feeling human again!
