  • As much as you can. :) I, however, suffered from terrible insomnia throughout much of both of my pregnancies.

    I don't think there's a set amount of sleep you should get. Just try to get as much as rest as you can.

  • Depends on the person. I'm sure you need at least the normal 8 hours usually, but many women need quite a bit more. I did, I was so severely nauseous all the time that I was exhausted.

  • I think it depends on the person and the trimester, you will most likely sleep more in the first and third trimesters. So you could nap during the day, go to sleep early in the first one and then sleep for 10 or 11 hour stretches at night, like I did, since I wasnt working at that point!
