On which side to sleep pregnant and how to take a comfortable position (pose) to the future mother
When the pregnancy passes to the stage that you can not already lie on your stomach, the woman discovers an undeniable truth – it’s not so convenient to sleep on your back. The most comfortable position for rest is a dream on the side, and the left. Many women come to this pose intuitively, simply listening to the preferences of their body. Others sleep on their left side on the recommendation of a doctor or acquaintances who were once pregnant.
Until the 12th week the child can please his mother by the fact that she can sleep in any habitual position for her. In this period of time, the fetus is still very small. This gives several advantages:
- The embryo is completely protected by the pelvic bones and it does not damage the sleep on the abdomen;
- the uterus, because of its small size, does not press on the internal organs and lumbar spine;
- there are no violations of blood circulation, if you lie in different poses.
However, a woman in the first trimester of pregnancy will reasonably prepare for future restrictions on the choice of poses for night rest. Change the habits worked out over the years is not easy. Therefore, in the first place, it is better to completely give up sleep on the stomach. Nature will help a little by the fact that due to the increase in sensitivity and breast size, such a posture will be painful.
The main thing - do not forget to consult the leading doctor of the women's consultation on the choice: which side to sleep on late pregnancy, so that sleep was not only a night forgetfulness, but also brought a full rest to the body.
