This Is The Correct Sleeping Position During Pregnancy
Pregnancy is a wonderful and magical time. Many changes take place in your body when you're pregnant. Your skin glows, menstrual cramps are GONE and everyone you know wants to help you in any way possible. But like everything else in the world pregnancy comes with its own set of problems.
Number one among these problems - sleeping. Sleeping with another human being inside of you can be problematic. Your back aches, your dreams are crazy and your bladder is squished by that growing baby, causing you to get up every 20 minutes for a two second pee. But there is more. You might not think it but the position you sleep in is very important for the life growing inside you. So what is the correct position to sleep in? Go to the next page to find out.
#4 What Positions Should You Avoid?
You remember all those things you've heard about sleeping on your back being the best?Well, that changes when you're pregnant. Sleeping on your back causes backaches, trouble breathing, can cause hemorrhoids and low blood pressure, which means there will be less blood circulating to your heart and the baby.
As your tummy continues to grow it will also become more and more impossible to lie on your stomach. The bigger you get the more awkward it becomes. The bed provides resistance to your body and pushes back against your breasts and uterus, causing harm to the baby. Find out on the next page what the best position really is.
#3 What's The Best Position?
In professional terms it's called 'SOS'. It simply means Sleep On Side, but it's not just as simple as that. For the correct position it is recommended that women sleep with their knees bent on their left side. It is also recommended to place a pillow between your legs and one under your abdomen and back.
Doing this allows you to be comfortable and also restricts your movement thus ensuring that you stay in the correct position the entire night. I know what you're wondering. Why go through all this trouble? How helpful is it really? Go to the next page to find out exactly what it does for you and the precious cargo inside you.
#2 What It Does For You And The Baby
Sleeping on your side with a pillow between your legs will decrease the amount of back pain you may feel, as it causes the spine to remain straight. You might not think so but sleeping on your right also has it's own purpose. Your liver is located on the right side and could cause discomfort in the uterus. Sleeping on the left side will also increase the blood and nutrients that travel to your placenta and baby.
No matter how much trouble you go through it is still quite easy to roll over and change positions at night. But don't panic. Pregnancy is a time when you need more rest than ever, yet the changes taking place inside your body make that difficult.If you do happen to roll over in your sleep don't worry and just sleep in whatever position you are. You need all the rest you can get. Similarly the next and last page gives you an alternative to the earlier position.
#1 There Is Another Option
The last recommendation is to sit up and sleep if you suffer from heartburn. Weird position? You're pregnant! All is forgiven during that time. For this position, you can lie on your back in a half-sitting position propped up against some pillows.
All of these positions have been studied and researched and the results have been brought to you. No matter what position you go with it is important to keep your baby's health a priority. Share this with every pregnant woman you know to help her out.
