I believe that many expectant mothers have experienced such a night: they can’t sleep over and over, back pain for a while, leg pain for a while, and upset for a while, in short, they can’t sleep well.There is no good sleep at night, irritable during the day, and anxious emotions affect the night’s sleep.So, what should I do during pregnancy?
Gao Xueqing, a maternal and gynecologist in Chongqing Anqier Maternity Hospital, said that it is not so difficult to want a good sleep.Regarding sleep, many things may be ignored. If these details are noticed, mothers will definitely sleep better.
Sleeping position is important
Most people sleep, either lying down flat or lying on the right, so that the pressure on the heart is relatively small.But mothers are not ordinary people, they are pregnant with little babies and cannot lie on the right.During pregnancy, the mother’s lower limbs will be oppressed, and then the legs will be swollen. Falling asleep on the left will reduce the pressure of the lower limbs, reduce edema, and the mother will feel better.Generally speaking, after 28 weeks of pregnancy, you need to develop the sleeping habit of lying on the left side, but the night is very long, and it is impossible to maintain a posture. Moms can switch to sleep on the left and right.
Equipment is important
First of all, the bed should not be too hard, especially the mothers in the third trimester, the belly is so large, and the waist must be very tired. If you sleep hard, the waist cannot be buffered and rest, and it hurts to turn over.Although sleeping wooden beds are very good for pregnant women, they can be covered with thick mats and mattresses.The pillow should not be too high. Too high may affect the blood supply to the brain and cause dizziness.If it is summer, you can prepare a mosquito net to prevent mosquitoes from biting the mother.
Create a dark and quiet sleep environment
Light and sound stimulation is not conducive to sleep, so it is best to turn off the lights before bedtime, pull up the light curtains, and do not put the clock with a titer in the bedroom, which can create a dark and quiet environment.
Make sure you sleep 8 hours a day
The quality of sleep during pregnancy is reduced. It is also recommended to ensure at least 8 hours of sleep. It is best to go to bed at 10 pm.After the mobile phone or iPad is turned off or adjusts to the flight mode, do not take it to the bed, let alone brush the circle of friends on the bed to sleep.(Supply of Chongqing Anqier Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital)
