What are the recommendations for difficulty sleeping during pregnancy?

ANSWER

Recommendations for sleeping better during pregnancy:

  • Don't take sleep medication.
  • Try drinking warm milk at bedtime.
  • Try taking a warm shower or bath before bedtime.
  • Use extra pillows for support while sleeping. Lying on your side, place a pillow under your head, abdomen, behind your back and between your knees to prevent muscle strain and help you get the rest you need.
  • You will probably feel better lying on your left side; this improves circulation of blood throughout your body.
