Pregnancy and Sleep Make for a Rocky Relationship

Tips for sleeping while pregnant

  • Exercise, but not right before bed! Movement influences circulation, which is necessary for rest, but exercise also releases adrenaline that can make it difficult to sleep.
  • Drink plenty of fluids throughout the day, but not in the hour leading up to bed: this will help prevent the frequency of waking up in order to urinate.
  • At the 20 week mark, begin sleeping on your left side. Further tip: support your body while sleeping with a pregnancy body pillow.
  • Nap if you need to: if you can’t find the rest you need at night, try taking a nap when you feel tired during the day time.
  • Establish consistency: routine helps many people find better sleep.
