Major changes can signal rocky sleep ahead. Pregnancy is one of the biggest physical and psychological shifts there is. So, insomnia is not uncommon. But, fear not—we’ve got solutions! Try sleeping on your side with your knees slightly bent, adding pillows under your stomach and between your legs to support your lower back. Avoid big meals and drinking three hours before bed, exercising, cutting down on caffeine and incorporating more relaxation into your routine.
Sleep deprivation can increase mood swings, anxiety, the risk of various illnesses and even your weight. So, take care to prioritize your beauty rest, especially as you prepare to usher your little one into the world.
