Best Sleeping Positions
Written on 14 August 2018
Getting a sound sleep during pregnancy seems impossible. The bigger your belly gets, the more the comfort tosses away. Your baby starts to kick strongly, and you feel the need to urinate every 10 minutes. All of these issues make it impossible for you to sleep soundly at night.
So, to let you mamas get a night of sound sleep, we have listed some tips that will help you sleep deeply.
Tips for pregnant women to get a sound sleep
Use pregnancy pillows
Special pregnancy pillows add a lot of comfort as you sleep. The pillow reduces back pain, helps to lay down comfortably, and enhances deep sleep. You can sleep with the pregnancy pillow between your legs on the left side to get comfort under your abdomen, behind your back, and knees.
Pregnancy pillows very well absorb the added weight of your body. This makes sleeping and resting hours more comfortable for you. They provide much-needed support to your body. The Mylo Essentials 2-in-1 supersoft pregnancy pillow is just the right solution to this problem. Its unique shape allows your body to get into a comfortable position while sleeping. Moreover, it can also be used as a nursing pillow after delivery.
Take afternoon naps
Afternoon naps tend to play havoc with your sleeping schedule. However, during pregnancy, sleeping during the day allows you to rest and compensate for the lost sleep. However, don’t take a nap when your bedtime is close.
Thirty minutes of regular exercise will enhance your mood, improve blood circulation, and help you sleep better at night. Don’t do a vigorous workout. Try to do light exercises and yoga. If your doctor advises against exercising, restrain from doing so.
Cutback on fluids at night
Drink fluids and as much water as you need during the day. Try to avoid liquids when your bedtime is close. This will ensure that your sleep is not disturbed due to frequent urine trips to the washroom.
Sleep on your left side
Sleeping on the left side is recommended for expecting mothers. It enhances the flow of blood and nutrients to your kidneys, fetus, and uterus. Sleeping with a pregnancy pillow between the legs will help you sleep on the left side with ease.
Your body is carrying a human being inside, and it requires rest, most importantly, for a healthy mama and a healthy baby. Try to invest your time in meditating and taking deep breaths before bedtime to sleep better. Try to relax and leave all your thoughts outside your bedroom and think about good things. The feeling is bound to put a smile on your face and help you sleep better.
