2nd month trying for #2 - looks like I'm definitely out this month. I had so many symptoms this month that I thought I HAD to be pregnant, but here I am the day before AF and another BFN. But, I did learn that Unisom, which is fine during pregnancy, can dry up your CM when TTC. I take it every night. So, I am stopping it next cycle, but I still have horrible insomnia. Is Melatonin ok???

I've never taken sleep aids myself, but I found this on the Mayo Clinic's website: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/melato ... ION=safety
It says melatonin increases risk of developmental disorders, so pregnant women should avoid it.

Yeah, after doing more research I've heard it's not the best idea too
I'm also starting clomid this month, which also affects your cm, so I really do need to stop taking the unisom until I get pregnant. Darn insomnia!! Thanks for your help though!
