Huh? Where Am I?

For the past few weeks, it seems as though my normal insomnia has kicked into overdrive. Usually, I can’t fall asleep. Now, I manage to fall asleep, but I can’t stay asleep. Today, I was up at 3:00 AM, and was wide awake until the alarm went off at 5:something. I’m glad I only had to work until noon today, since the first thing I did when I got home was take a nap. I’m still tired.
I’ve been a very good girl lately, too. I refuse to take anything to help me sleep because of the whole baby-making effort (believe me, I never could have guessed how out-of-whack a little diphenhydramine could throw your reproductive system). I’ve kicked most of my bad habits, so logically, I should sleep better at night knowing that I’m making positive changes in my life.
I’m running out of tricks to lull myself into a peaceful slumber. I can recite all the states (and their capitals) in alphabetical order. Counting sheep has become so familiar to me that I’ve started to give them names. So here’s the question:
What are some other tricks to incude sleep?

    If you figure it out, share with me. I can go to sleep just fine, but I wake up sometime after 3 as well, and am wide awake usually for at least an hour or two.

    Well, maybe we should all start a 3am club! 🙂

    Merrin, exserting myself make me really sleepy. 🙂

    Sometimes I can get back to sleep if I spoon Michael. I think my body matches his breathing and eventually I just drift off.

    If that doesn’t work I get out of bed and read. I generally get sleepy within 20 minutes – of course sometimes that goes away when I return to the bed.

    Last year I had trouble sleeping and started having a glass of red wine before going to bed. It really did help a lot.

    …not to mention I got to try several new wines. =)
