How To Get More Sleep During Pregnancy

Many women think that is impossible to get more sleep during pregnancy. There are quite a few reasons that pregnant women have trouble sleeping at night. Depending on how far along in the pregnancy she is, it could have to do with back pain, frequent urination, or even a stuffed up nose. Pregnant women should know that there are a couple of things that you can do to help you get more sleep.

If you are having trouble sleeping due to back or hip pain or just being uncomfortable, try adding more pillows to your bed. You can also check out body pillows that help support your stomach and back better than just laying on a flat bed. There are body pillows that are made especially for pregnant women that are not that expensive and are really worth the money to get comfortable and get your sleep at night. If you don't want to buy a body pillow, then just try some extra pillows in between your legs and propping you up more to support your body more.

Make sure that you are eating a healthy diet and not eating too late at night. Many women suffer from heartburn when they are pregnant which can inhibit their sleep at night. Try to not eat late at night if you get heartburn. This also goes for drinking as well. If you find that you are getting up late at night to go to the bathroom every hour, then stop drinking anything 2-3 hours before bedtime. Also, eating a healthy diet that is rich in vitamins and nutrients also helps you get more sleep during pregnancy. If you do have to have a snack at night, try one that is high in carbohydrates as they help you to fall asleep easier, rather than ones that are high in protein or sugar.

Regular exercise can also help pregnant women get more sleep. There are many women who stop exercising when they get pregnant, but there are so many benefits to keeping up with light exercising while pregnant. The healthier your body is, the better you are able to sleep. It has been shown that exercise approximately 5-6 hours before bedtime helps you drift off to sleep quicker and get the restful sleep that you need.

Try to relax. This may sound easier that it actually is, but trying out different relaxation methods will actually help you fall asleep much easier. Try things such as meditation or yoga before bed. Other things like deep breathing and even counting help to relax your mind, which helps you fall asleep. If you find that you stress out about pregnancy or other things before bed, try reading a good book or magazine right before bed to take your mind off of the stressful things in your life.

Most pregnant women go throughout their entire pregnancy sleep deprived, which is not healthy for them. Instead, employ some of the quick tips discussed to help you get more sleep during pregnancy.

    Fortune Baby Gender Predictor Reviews


    Thousands of happy moms around the world successfully used Fortunebaby gender prediction test. We are delighted to share their gender prediction reviews about their experience with Fortune Baby.

    Hello! I did your gender predictor test and so desperate for someone to tell me I am going to have a girl, since I have 2 boys already and three children is my limit, so you can see how important to me to have a girl! Your due date is right on the money (Dec 1st), of course it will sooner, I always give birth 2 weeks early and very fast labor and delivery( 1st one in 45 minutes, second son in 42 minutes. So doc said I can pick my date in December so I do not into labor and deliver on the highway (I am about 20 min. from hospital), the doc said SHE might come even faster! HA! I do not call it the oven, I call it the microwave...F_A_S_T!!! Of course she is not here yet, but at least I can start buying PINK, and NOT BLUE (sick of blue, LOL).... I will say my parents thought I was CRAZY to pay someone to tell me what they predict, well worth my money... I will be writing in again to let you know when SHE does arrive.......... I BELIEVE! I BELIEVE! I BELIEVE!!!!!! THANK YOU

    Hi all at Fortune Baby, I had my 22 week scan last week and I would just like to let you know that your gender prediction was CORRECT, my husband and I are over the moon, you predicted that we would have a baby girl and this was confirmed last week, we have two beautiful boys and this new addition will just complete our family, football mad boys for daddy and a little girly girl for mummy. I will definitely recommend your site to others. Thanks once again

    Spot on again!! Boy number 2 is on his way! Thanks again!

    I thought I would let you know that I used your gender selection chart to try and have a girl (although would have been happy with a 3rd boy) and in the 4 years your calendar said there was only a 8 month time span we could have a girl. Thinking what the heck my hubby and I figured it was the same time we were wanting to try for out 3rd and final addition. After finding out I was pregnant I used the gender prediction tool to see what it would say and it also said we would have a little girl as well. Well much to my surprise we had our sono done at 16 weeks and was told it was a girl. Knowing that was still early to know for sure I did not get my hopes up but having 2 other sonos since then have both confirmed we are having a little girl. Thanks so much, i have recommended you to all my friends. In fact a friend told me a couple of days ago and told me she used your services and it said she was having a girl and sure enough her sweet little girl was born about 4 weeks ago.
