Oh my achy-breaky-preggy-back. Pregnancy is a great time but when we throw in a nice little change in gravity, sleep can be difficult. Here’s an ode to pillows, or a guide on how to get a better night’s rest while pregnant so you hopefully don’t wake up with hip, back or knee pain.
Quick Tip Reminders to a Better Sleep while Pregnant:
Use a pillow under your head that keeps your head nice and level
Put a pillow between your legs that goes from your crotch to your knees and even your ankles
If you find yourself tilting forward or backwards at night, put another pillow in front of you or behind you
Last but not least, as the baby grows and gets bigger you may want to place a towel or small pillow directly under your baby bump
