Pregnancy: Essentials for a good night's sleep during pregnancy

Updated on February 1, 2018

 Here are the "tools" I have been using to get a good night's sleep during pregnancy. Some I read about and followed the advice. Some I discovered on my own.

1. Experts recommend that a woman sleep most on her left side during pregnancy. This improves circulation to both mother and baby.

2. While sleeping on your left side is preferred, sleeping on your right side would be okay. Avoid sleeping on either your back or your belly.

 3. Keep knees bent as you position yourself to try to fall asleep.

4. Keep a pillow between the legs and another pillow under the feet to elevate them.

5. It is well worth the investment to get a special pregnancy body pillow. When I got mine, I felt the difference right away.

So, do something good for yourself by getting one of these pillows. You won't regret it.

6. On your night stand, keep a glass of water to drink if it might be needed.

7. Block out all light with curtains and/or by wearing an eye mask. (This is good for anyone who is trying to get a good night's sleep).

Have a comfortable pregnancy!

      While, I missed the comment to moderate it all those years ago, a special thanks to Jason for the compliment to this hub.

      Such a great article! I am getting some work conducted on my truck and this location doesn't have any reading material not to mention does not have any television set thus it dawned on me that I have my own notebook in the vehicle and a witeless Connection to the web. Anyway, back to the article. The person who composed this did an excellent job. I ACTUALLY once was a magazine editor and can tell the big difference between a very good report and a lousy one. Many thanks for the blog post. I've book-marked your website as a favorite!
