Sleeping Positions to Avoid While Pregnant
Do you know which sleeping positions to avoidwhile pregnanté Sleeping on your back becomes impracticalonce you hit the third trimester. The baby's weight pushes down on you, making it hardto sleep. And hard to breathe. And hard to stay asleep,because of the weight on my stomach and bladder. That will also worsen morning sickness inthe morning. I hope I don't have morning sickness intothe second and third trimester. It is rare, but it happens. Can I sleep on my stomaché
You aren't going to squish the baby, ifthat's your fear. Though it gets really uncomfortable in the third trimester. I guess I'm stuck sleeping on my side, asmuch as I hate it. If sleeping on your side is uncomfortable,get a pregnancy pillow. It will support your legs and arms, making it more comfortable. I don't know if that is good enough. Get an air bed to even out the pressure onyour body. Mattress springs might put too much pressure on your hips and shoulders,making it uncomfortable to sleep on your side.
A Sleep Number bed is so expensive, it wouldbe hard to get as a push present. No one even gave out push presents thirtyyears ago to reward you for having a baby. All you got was a cute little baby at theend. Literally, I suppose. Though I might get thebed if I say it is necessary. For your sleep or his sanity, I suppose. Itis certainly better than trying to sleep standing up. That's not even possible. There are angled beds, you know.
That's about as stupid as the chiropractictables with holes in the middle for pregnant woman. You could try that. Howé Get a pregnancy massage on a table with thatsame hole. That would be a good excuse to get a massage.
Pregnancy Tips How to Sleep While Pregnant
Are you pregnanté Lying in bed, and can'tget to sleep. Well, unfortunately that's one of the common side effects of pregnancy, difficultyin sleeping. I'm Jill from Tampa here to tell you how to sleep in pregnancy. Well,does it matter you've been sleeping your whole life. It actually does. Two things, in pregnancyposition makes all of difference. As your belly starts to grow, starting about anywherefrom the fourth to the fifth month, belly's going to pooch out, no more lying on yourbelly. You want to make sure that you're either on your back or on your side. On your backis safe when it's that early. Once you hit about five months to six months, you alwayswant to be on your side, the reason is that
it increases the blood flow to the baby, throughthe placenta. If you're laying flat on your back, that big pregnant uterus is pushingon the blood vessels that bring the blood to the heart. As the hearts trying to pushthe blood out, it's not as good and not as much blood flow goes to the baby. So, alwayssleep on your side after about twenty weeks, that improves baby's circulation and helpsmom, you also won't get dizzy. If you lay flat on your back when you're farther along,you could pass out, same reason as before. Other problems are that your dreams becomevivid. Sleep is hard because you go to bed and nightmares can occur and all of thesevivid dreams start happening. No way to really
prevent that, but try to go to bed at ease.Maybe watch a little T.V, read books, have soothing lavender. All of those things canhelp you get a restful nights sleep. If you're still not sleeping, you want to talk to yourhealth care provider, because then they can help, maybe prescribe some medication, likeeven something as simple as Benadryl. That will help you sleep through the night, andimprove your well being. I'm Jill from Tampa, Florida telling you how to sleep duringpregnancy.
