It would have to be the one who you are local to I think. Have you tried nhs 101 if you're really worried or if you have facebook then look at the Tony's page as they have an advice line.

You're definitely not alone, I'm 35 weeks and have had insomnia for the past 5-6 days. I haven't slept a full night since last week and it's driving me crazy. I would recommend trying some lavender pillow spray if you can get hold of any as it's helped me in the past lots but doesn't seem to be doing anything recently (might be the heat). Are you still working? If not I would take full advantage and nap during the day if you can. Hope it passes soon for you X

Hello! I'm 35 weeks too and have been struggling to get back to sleep at between 2 & 3am, I call it the witching hour! This has been going on for ages!

You won't hurt your baby, you'll just be really tired. If you can nap during the day, do.

I'm sure someone will be along soon with some better advice.

When I was pg I had insomnia literally from the moment of conception until delivery. It was shit. I read a lot of books.
