Healthy Pregnancy Challenge Day 6: 

Do you make sure you are getting enough sleep? During pregnancy, you will probably be more fatigued then normal, and remember you are growing a new little life, and that will be tiring!

How much do you sleep each night?

How do you make sure that you are getting enough sleep?

  • Try a pregnancy pillow to help support your body and keep yourself comfortable in bed
  • Some pregnant moms sleep better in an upright position
  • Be sure to unwind before bed, with a relaxing bath or shower, a good book, some yoga exercises, or a cup of tea or milk
  • If you are experiencing severe sleep issues, be sure to check with your doctor before trying any sleep medication while pregnant

Ugh! I'm so tired all the time right now. All I want to do is lay down and sleep, I have no motivation at all. I get about 7-8 hours of sleep a night, and end up laying down to rest for about 2-3 hours during the day because I just have to. Between the tiredness, the nausea, the burping, the fatigued feeling, the headache, I do wish I was getting more sleep.

I am always tired, but I get a lot of sleep at night. Usually between 8-10 hours.

I was sleeping good. But heartburn has been killer this week. I finally got some tums so that should help. I have a body pillow that I sleep with too that really helps.

I get maybe 6 hours of interrupted sleep at night and a nap of maybe 1-2 hour of interrupted sleep.

 I go to bed at 10pm and get up roughly 630-7 everyday. I am still so tired even now, during the weekends I take a nap to try and get some extra sleep but there is so much to be done

Great tips.

I do not sleep enough. My 18mo still wakes up frequently through the night :(

I still aim to get my 8 hours. I do one pillow between my legs, and then sort of lay my belly half on one with the other end of the pillow coming out behind my back for back support. It's helping relieve some pain.
