It is not uncommon for a woman to suffer from insomnia during pregnancy. This is often caused by the need to go to the bathroom regularly, a mind that's worked up over your impending child birth, cramps in the legs, or problems getting comfortable.
If you are pregnant, you must try to find some way to relax. If you are stressed out, it's going to be much harder to sleep. Try meditation, or if you are a person of faith, spend some prayer time alone. A warm bath is a good idea too. You want to have your mind as clear as possible before “hitting the hay". This is important even if you aren't about to give birth. But with all that's going on for a pregnant woman, this is especially important.
Is your insomnia during pregnancy caused because of a problem relaxing? Why not try a whole body pillow or a pillow specifically designed for pregnancy? This will support your ever-expanding stomach. Be sure to sleep with a pillow between your legs, as well as with a pillow underneath your stomach. This will support the uterus. And try lying on your side. Many women report success when doing this.
If frequent urination is disrupting your sleep, watch the amount of liquid you consume before going to bed. You definitely need fluids, but get them early in the day.
Many women also report insomnia during pregnancy because they are having trouble moving around when they are in bed. Silky pajamas or silky sheets can help with this.
You don't have to suffer through insomnia during pregnancy . The book Stop Insomnia has some great ideas for getting a good night's sleep.
