2. Sleeping Position


While pregnant, you may have difficulty finding a comfortable position to sleep. Unfortunately, your regular positions may not be suitable.

It is best to avoid lying on your back after you are 16 weeks pregnant. The best position for sleeping during pregnancy is on your side, especially if you sleep on your left side because this position improves blood circulation.

Your mattress should be firm. Sleep in a way that does not put strain on your neck and back muscles. You may change position while you are sleeping.

Here are a few tips to sleep comfortably.

Avoid sleeping on your belly because it puts too much pressure on your neck and back.
