The habit of a per­son to fall asleep in a cer­tain posi­tion is devel­oped over the years and it is incred­i­bly dif­fi­cult to change it. Even if you fall asleep in the “cor­rect” posi­tion, then at night you can still lie down exact­ly as you are used to — until the sub­con­scious mind begins to “beep” about the ban. Bans on the usu­al sleep­ing posi­tion arise just dur­ing the bear­ing of the crumbs.

Why is this hap­pen­ing? First of all, because the sleep­ing posi­tion should be com­fort­able for the woman and not harm the devel­op­ing fetus in any way. So, the inter­nal organs should not press on the baby in the womb so that he can ful­ly receive the nec­es­sary oxy­gen. Based on these con­sid­er­a­tions, they answer the ques­tion of whether it is pos­si­ble to sleep on the stom­ach.

If we are talk­ing about the 1st trimester of preg­nan­cy, then the expec­tant moth­er can afford any posi­tion — after all, the uterus is not yet large and fits com­plete­ly between the pelvic bones. Of course, if you sud­den­ly feel that you sud­den­ly feel uncom­fort­able on your stom­ach, you need to lis­ten to the sig­nal of the body and change your posi­tion.

With the start of the fourth month preg­nan­cy the bel­ly is already quite vis­i­ble. The first move­ments of the crumbs are also felt. Of course, the baby in the womb is reli­ably pro­tect­ed from every­thing, but dur­ing this peri­od it is no longer pos­si­ble to sleep on the stom­ach, because in this way the moth­er her­self will put pres­sure on the unborn baby. From the sev­enth month on your stom­ach you can no longer roll over, even if you real­ly want to. By the way, at the same time, the ban on sleep­ing on the back begins to oper­ate — in this posi­tion, the fetus will put pres­sure on the inter­nal organs of the preg­nant woman, which can have an extreme­ly neg­a­tive impact on her health. After all, the uterus increas­es very much, squeez­ing the spine and intestines, as well as the vena cava. Com­pressed vena cava can­not nor­mal­ly drain blood from the organs, which means that stag­na­tion occurs and, as a result, hem­or­rhoids, vari­cose veins and oth­er unpleas­ant con­di­tions.

But how to orga­nize a dream? More­over, preg­nant women very often want to sleep — because of the pro­duc­tion of the hor­mone prog­es­terone in enor­mous quan­ti­ties. It acts as a nat­ur­al relax­ant with a calm­ing effect. And since preg­nant women have a lot of it, they want to sleep more often than usu­al. Prop­er sleep is one of the keys to suc­cess. course of preg­nan­cy. All experts agree that it is best for preg­nant women to sleep on their side. And so that the grow­ing bel­ly does not inter­fere and does not pull the mus­cles, a roller or a spe­cial pil­low is placed between the legs. This is a great way to orga­nize a com­fort­able sleep — harm­less for the baby and incred­i­bly con­ve­nient for the moth­er. By the way, with pil­low for preg­nant women you will get used to the new sleep­ing posi­tion very quick­ly.
