Tips For Sleeping While Pregnant

February 8, 2018

 

Pregnancy is a wonderful and exciting time, but can also be exhausting. That’s why it’s important to get plenty of rest and keep your energy levels up. Here are a few tips from our team of experts on how to get a good night’s rest while pregnant:

 

 


Hydrate


Make sure you are drinking plenty of fluids throughout the day, then cut back at night. Hydration is crucial to the health of your body and your baby during pregnancy, but reducing your fluid intake in the evening will help minimize your need to urinate in the middle of the night.  


Get Moving


Not only does exercising regularly optimize your body’s health, it helps improve blood circulation which will help reduce those painful nighttime leg cramps. Get your body moving early in day so you body can release adrenaline and boost your energy levels for the day, that way you’ll be ready to sleep when nighttime comes. 


Set a Routine


Establishing a consistent, relaxing evening routine for yourself will help ease your body and prepare it for sleep. Whether it’s taking a warm shower, reading a book, or brushing your hair, find an activity that’s soothing and stick to it each night to signal to your body it’s time for bed.


Positioning


It’s important to be aware of your sleeping position when pregnant, and different positions can actually give you a better night’s sleep. When you’re about 20 weeks along, try sleeping on your left side. This allows good blood flow to your baby, as well as to your uterus and kidneys. Also try supporting your body with a pregnancy pillow to get more comfortable.


Nap


Aren’t naps just the best? If you’re not getting enough rest at night, try taking a nap during the day to limit your fatigue. Naps give your body time to relax and restore energy, which can actually help you get better sleep in the evenings. 


If you find you are still having trouble sleeping while pregnant, talk to your doctor. They can help you find a solution that works best for you and your baby!
