    It's hard to sleep when you have a bulging belly, but also so important. When you are pregnant, it is common to have sleep pattern disturbances. The unstable routine may make you anxious and stressed, cause physical discomfort, and induce hormonal fluctuations. It becomes difficult for you to find your perfect, comfortable position.

    But with all the heart, we bring you expecting mothers some tips which will make you sleep better.

    Tips to help you sleep better during pregnancy

    Use a pregnancy pillow.

    A pregnancy pillow will help you get comfortable in bed. You can place the pregnancy pillow behind your back for support, and another one between your legs to achieve the perfect position which will help you sleep like a baby. You will find yourself more comfortable and relaxed with the use of a pregnancy pillow, plus it will keep your body aches in control during the day.

    Also, pregnancy pillows help in enhancing the blood circulation of your body. It allows you to sleep for long comfortably. They promote better sleep which in return has positive effect on the health of your baby as well.

    Drink less before you sleep

    Drink as much water as you want during the day but try to avoid water during bedtime. Given the increasing size of your belly, you already have to pee several times. If you drink water right before going to bed, it will disturb your sleep as you might have to pee at night.

    Workout daily

    Working out helps you drift off quickly as it will enhance your mood and make the circulation of blood in your body better. You will feel optimal regarding your health, and the movement of your body will cause you to sleep with more ease.

    Go to bed, free-minded.

    Throw away all your negative thoughts, anxiety, and stress out the window before you go to bed. Only think of happy things when you are about to go to bed. You can try some breathing exercises as well, which will help you to fall asleep better.

    Avoid spicy food

    Spicy food will cause heartburn and acidity during the night. So, try to avoid spicy food during dinner. Occasional cravings are fine but don't make it a habit to consume food, which may cause heartburn as it will cause discomfort when you try to sleep.

    Make a healthy sleeping routine with these tips. Sleeping is of utmost importance for a mother to be because that affects not only the health of the mother but also the baby. Sleep well, eat well and wait for your baby to make it all worthwhile.
