Pregnancy can be an amazing time in your life. You’ll be welcoming a new life into the world and soon you’ll experience the purest love in the world: motherhood. With joy, naturally, comes stress and overwhelming times. A normal amount of stress can cause us to lay awake at night, so pregnancy stress only multiplies this. Getting a good night of sleep while you’re pregnant may seem like the last thing on your mind, but it shouldn’t be. According to a study done by the University of California, the number of hours you sleep each night during pregnancy correlates with the number of hours you’ll be in labor. To avoid unwarranted labor pains, let’s go over the best options for getting a good night of sleep while you’re waiting on the stork.
About Pregnancy has some tips on when and how you should be sleeping during pregnancy and how to fall asleep easier at night:
There are many options when it comes to mattresses to consider during your pregnancy. Latex foam beds are recommended due to their comfort and their all natural composition. It’s best to keep additional exposure to allergies out of your life while you’re pregnant and an all-natural latex mattress can help with this.
Sleeping on your back: Sleeping on your back can cause problems with backaches, the digestive system, breathing and low blood pressure. It can also cause a decrease in circulation to your heart and baby.
Sleeping on your stomach: As you get further along in your pregnancy, your abdomen will get larger and make it very difficult and uncomfortable to sleep on your stomach.
There are many other sleeping methods out there to consider during your pregnancy. Make sure you find the one that’s best suited for you; remember, in a few months you’re going to be a mom, which means this could be your last chance for a full night of sleep!
