Choose Right Sleeping Position during Pregnancy..

During pregnancy one of the main concern  is getting a proper and comfortable  sleeping position.  We normally love the back or stomach sleeping postion and it is really comfortable too.  But during pregnancy we can't sleep in those positions, it might be harmful for the baby inside the womb.  To be very honest, I am still struggling to get a proper sleep during night (I am on my third trimester currently ).  And I know it is not gonna possible in any way now.  But we can take few precautions to make the sleep pattern comfortable and that's the topic of today.

Choose Right Sleeping Position during Pregnancy..

Types of sleeping patterns and it's bad and good effect on body during pregnancy :



* Sleep on your back -  It is advisable by the doctor to not sleep on your back during the time period of pregnancy . When we sleep on our back ,it puts pressure on the growing uterus which compress the main artery and other blood vessels.  Because of this the blood and nutrition supply to the baby will not be sufficient. Along with that you might face indigestion issue, constipation, low blood pressure, laziness, etc.  So do avoid sleeping on your back during pregnancy.

* Sleep on stomach - I love sleeping on my stomach down but unfortunately we can't sleep like this during pregnancy.  It is very clear that, when you are sleeping on your stomach, it will put pressure on the baby directly which is not good at all.

* Sleep on left / right side -  Sleeping on sides is the safest way of sleeping during pregnancy.  Moreover sleeping on left is more beneficial for the baby and the body  than sleeping on right side. It allows maximum blood flows to the placenta and nutrition to the baby.  It doesn't put pressure on the kidney. You also don't face any kind of swelling on feet, ankle, etc.

To get a comfortable sleep, the only way is to put pillows to support your back, under your belly, under your feet.  Using loads of pillows make your body comfortable . You can use special kind of pillows which are meant only for pregnant women . Sometimes we sleep and not able to carry the same sleeping pattern whole night.  In case you find yourself sleeping on your back, then no need to feel guilty , just change your sleeping pattern and sleep again.


Note : These are the information which I am sharing on my own experience and also according to my gynecologist's advice.  Do refer your gynecologist before adopting anything to get a smooth pregnancy...

Hope you found this post helpful . See you in the next post with another exciting topic.. Till then stay beautiful.
