PREGNANCY AND SLEEP

Pregnancy symptoms that can make sleeping difficult:

• Abdominal Discomfort
• Shortness of Breath
• Heartburn
• Leg Cramps
• Fetal Movement

If these plaguing problems sound familiar, know that you’re not alone. Your changing body has new needs for optimal sleep during pregnancy. Taking a few extra steps to increase your comfort can greatly improve your sleep experience.

Your Sleep Stuff makes a difference.

A Goodnight Sleepstore offers a variety of products that can ease some of the discomfort that’s getting in the way of your sleep.

Pillows

Body Pillows can be used to help with abdominal discomfort and can relieve back pain.

Extra pillows are good for propping yourself up if you’re battling heartburn or shortness of breath. They’re also good for under the knees and feet to improve circulation. Use a pillow between your knees, under your belly, or behind your back to support your body and make sleeping more comfortable.

Mattresses

Pregnant women may need a firmer mattress to support extra body weight.

If you find that you are too hot at night, a memory foam mattress may be just the thing you need to help regulate body temperature.

Adjustable Beds

If you’re in the market for a new bed, A Good Night Sleep Store has adjustable frames that can provide support for mommies to be. Create comfort while you sleep by elevating your head, your feet or both. These frames will ensure that your bed changes as your body changes!

In addition to creating a bed for your new body, there are other tips and tricks you can use to improve sleep during pregnancy. Doing what you can to get a good night of sleep may reduce fatigue and enhance your pregnancy experience. If you’re having trouble sleeping due to pregnancy or any other cause, our sleep specialists can help!
