Preg­nan­cy is a peri­od that com­plete­ly changes a wom­an’s body, includ­ing rebuild­ing her life rhythm. There­fore, many expec­tant moth­ers are faced with such a prob­lem as insom­nia. It is well known that a woman “in posi­tion” should rest for at least 8 hours at night, and sev­er­al thir­ty-minute breaks will not hurt dur­ing the day. How­ev­er, it is dif­fi­cult for preg­nant women to cal­cu­late the cyclic­i­ty of sleep and their desires in this regard. After all, hor­mon­al changes lead not only to gen­er­al weak­ness, but also to sleep dis­tur­bances, and these prob­lems can occur as ear­ly as the first trimester.

The longer the ges­ta­tion peri­od, the more addi­tion­al stress occurs on the body. Phys­i­o­log­i­cal changes lead to ten­sion of all mus­cles, pain in the low­er back. In addi­tion, almost all preg­nant women are pre­vent­ed from sleep­ing nor­mal­ly by fre­quent uri­na­tion.

It is pos­si­ble to get rid of unpleas­ant sen­sa­tions at night (includ­ing nau­sea and heart­burn) if you refuse spicy, too sour and spicy foods at night. Tox­i­co­sis at night will be relieved by water with lemon, drunk before going to bed in small sips. How­ev­er, you need to mon­i­tor the amount of flu­id you drink, so that lat­er you do not fight with the fre­quent urge to uri­nate. You should espe­cial­ly lim­it your­self a few hours before bed­time, but in the morn­ing you should not deny your­self if you want to drink.

A com­mon prob­lem — leg cramps — is solved as fol­lows: dur­ing the day, give your legs the max­i­mum load. This will help improve blood cir­cu­la­tion. So you should walk for at least half an hour every day. Pain in the low­er back is lev­eled with the help of spe­cial breath­ing tech­niques and exer­cis­es. Con­tribute to the removal of dis­com­fort and a spe­cial ban­dage, which is allowed to wear only in the day­time. But at night it will help to relax spe­cial pil­low for preg­nant womenlit­er­al­ly envelop­ing the body, tired dur­ing the day and con­tribut­ing to its max­i­mum unload­ing.

If an emo­tion­al out­burst inter­feres with sleep, then the expec­tant moth­er will have to cope with her anx­i­eties and doubts. They must be over­come before the ten­sion reach­es its max­i­mum. How­ev­er, you can eas­i­ly learn the psy­cho­log­i­cal and phys­i­cal tech­niques of unload­ing in the cours­es of future par­ents. The con­di­tions in the room in which the preg­nant woman rests and sleeps are also impor­tant. It is impor­tant to ensure opti­mal micro­cli­mat­ic para­me­ters — the room should not be hot or stuffy. The expec­tant moth­er should also be pro­tect­ed from all pos­si­ble sources of irri­ta­tion — it is impor­tant to exclude noise, watch­ing TV. Read­ing peri­od­i­cal news­pa­pers and news web­sites is also not the best thing for a preg­nant woman to do before bed. How­ev­er, the max­i­mum psy­cho­log­i­cal com­fort, sup­ple­ment­ed by the right bed­ding, is the key to a com­fort­able and healthy sleep and com­plete relax­ation dur­ing the night. And a rest­ed preg­nant woman will lit­er­al­ly glow with pos­i­tive, which will ben­e­fit the baby.
