Insomnia During Pregnancy- How to Select A Maternity Pillow
Welcoming parenthood, also welcomes a world of sleeplessness 😱 Doesn't it unfair that when you need it the most, you can't get it? Difficulty in falling or staying sleep hit especially hard in the third trimester of pregnancy, when it’s estimated to affect more than 75% of expectant mums.
You should read the below if you are
a) in 3-9 months pregnancy
b) with big baby bump
c) having difficulty to sleep at night
d) often awaking in the middle of the night
e) having swelling legs
Finding a comfy sleep position after 20-30 years of being a tummy/back sleeper can be felt as the ultimate curse against pregnancy.
Doctors recommend lying on your left-hand side during pregnancy. Believe it or not, it’s not a punishment directed at you because you’re pregnant, but in fact helps with blood flow and nutrient delivery to your baby. It also helps your own body eliminate waste and fluid – delicious.
Furthermore, your core body temperature increases once you’re pregnant, and you’re probably left feeling like a grease trap. That’s why you need a pillow with temperature-balanced function to guarantee a better sleep.
#Important FACTS about MATERNITY PILLOW:
1) Side-sleeping support- Put the pillow between your legs and your baby bump on the pillow to improve your sleep. Side-sleeping is recommended for blood flow and circulation.
2) Best cuddles- Relieve your back pain when you put the pillow at your back.
3) Hypoallergenic foam- breathable, absorbent and odor-free
4) Nursing pillow - Save your back, neck and shoulders also for providing your bub a position to do a good latch
5) High-return Foam- It is firm enough and won’t collapse after leaning for long periods.
6) Temperature Regulating- Both you and your baby won’t get hot easily as the premium foam regulates the pillow temperature well.
With an increase in hCG (pregnancy hormone) and those kidneys working over time to filter a whopping 50% more blood than usual, your pee-ing will be at an all-time high. Wait for the third trimester and your ‘need to pee’ will be at its peak. You’ll be just like the Trevi Fountain.
Tip: Drink plenty of fluids through the day but less in the late afternoon, and remember to take a pee before you jump into bed.
