8 Reasons Why It’s So Hard to Get Sleep When You’re Pregnant

8 Reasons Why It’s So Hard to Get Sleep When You’re Pregnant



It’s difficult in general for most Americans to get sleep, but that number is even higher for pregnant women.  According to a study reported by The Sleep Advisor blog and done by the National Sleep Foundation, almost 80% of women have disturbances in sleep when they are pregnant.  Here are my top 8 reasons why it’s so hard to get sleep when you’re pregnant:

  1. You are generally uncomfortable, anyway.
Being pregnant is not a comfortable thing.  There is extra weight on you, so you have extra pressure on your nerves, veins, and muscles, and you are limited to which sleeping positions you can use because sleeping on your back or stomach can be bad for your baby.   

Sleeping on your left side is your best option according to WebMD, but it can often make for a sleepless night.  If you don’t already have one, get a really good and comfortable mattress that has a pillow topper, and invest in a pregnancy pillow.  

You’ll be able to put the pillow behind you to help prop you up and keep you from rolling over into a dangerous place for baby, and you can even put it in-between your knees to keep your lumbar position intact and from putting too much pressure on your spine.   

You can also experiment with different beds, couches, or reclining armchairs in your home to find the most comfortable place to sleep in.

2.     You can’t drink alcohol.
You can’t drink because of the pregnancy, so while normally you may have had a glass (or three) of wine before bed on a rough night, your alcohol intake is severely if not totally limited by your baby.
This is actually good news though, because drinking before bed for a good night’s sleep is just a myth.  Alcohol actually dehydrates you and wakes you up throughout the night. Besides, with your decreased bladder capacity, it would be even worse for you if you had to use the restroom every hour. Instead try a small glass of warm milk or 8 ounces of water before bed.

3.      You’re eating for two.
You are eating for two so your meals and general caloric intake is probably increased over what it normally would be, but this can be bad news if you’re eating a lot before bed.  Try to eat a lot of smaller meals throughout the day as opposed to fewer larger ones, and cut off whatever food you eat about an hour before you plan on going to sleep.
If you have to snack, try small amounts of protein like almonds or turkey before bed.

4.     You’re more prone to heartburn.
There’s the old wives tale that says the amount of indigestion and heartburn you have will tell you what the gender of your baby will be, but really the amount of heartburn you experience has less to do with girl or boy and more to do with your hormone levels relaxing your stomach valve,  according to health.com. This can make sleeping at night even more difficult.   

To limit the heartburn,  keep your meals small, as discussed in the previous tip.  You can also try basic or alkaline water to readjust your body’s pH levels back to normal, just make sure to check with your doctor before hand to make sure it’s the right move for you.

5.    Your muscles ache.
It’s hard to sleep when your muscles ache.  Try wearing a belly band throughout the day,  it will help ease the stress on your back and body so that you’ll have a little bit more comfortable evening. As a bonus, it helps keep your pants from falling down.

6.    It’s harder to exercise.
When you’re used to being active and you limit your exercise, it becomes more difficult to feel tired at night and to fall asleep quickly.  Being pregnant can limit what kind of exercise you can do, but you definitely shouldn’t completely stop working out.  

Look into maternity classes at your local gym or fitness center, and try to continue to be as active as possible so that you’re healthy and ready for the stress of childbirth on your body. You can also try PreMama, a prenatal vitamin drink mix, for optimum nutrition during pregnancy (and even before).

7.    It’s difficult to keep your same sleeping schedule.
It’s always easier to sleep more soundly if you put your body on a schedule and stick to it.  Being pregnant can definitely affect that schedule, but now is the time where it’s more important than ever to get the amount of sleep you need.
Not only is it important so that baby can grow, but let’s face it, after you deliver you’re going to have some restless nights ahead.  Take advantage of all of the sleep you can get, and naps where needed, but try to keep your nights and days straight as that will only help you in the long run.

8.    You’re worried about everything.
It’s common for women in general to worry, and especially before an event, but now you’re into an entirely new kind of worry - a mother’s worry.  You’re probably anxious about delivery, going into labor, how to get to the hospital or birthing center, if your child is going to be healthy, and a myriad of other things.  

There will be plenty of time to deal with all of that when your baby arrives, so now is the time to make sure you get rest so that you’re ready when the big day comes.  

Be kind to yourself.  Invest in new bedding, pregnancy tea,  soothing music, noise-cancelling headphones, an eye mask, a maternity facial, yoga classes, relaxation DVDs, or any thing else that makes you feel happy and peaceful.

Above all, do whatever makes you comfortable and don’t be afraid to ask for help.  Your baby will be here in no time, and pretty soon you won’t get hardly any sleep at all— so try to take advantage of this restful time while it lasts!

Water Works Park ~ Denton, Texas

Disclosure~ This is a sponsored post on behalf of US FamilyGuide and Water Works Park located in Denton, Texas. My family and I received a complimentary admission to the water park in order to complete my review.:) All the pictures in this post are taken by me or my children while at the park! 




My family and my first impression of the park 
is how Clean it was!!
We traveled all over the park and enjoyed 
the many play areas!
All the areas were sparkling and nice.
There where many chairs, tables and loungers to go around for everyone in the park that day!
WE never waited to do anything at Water Works.

The park staff was awesome and friendly. 
Special thanks to Darby and Maria!

My favorite part of the park was the lazy river.
The Lazy river was a nice pace and had a waterfall, bubbles and sprinklers as you are going thru! 
The water was very calming and clear. 
We must have went thru it about 15 times that day!!!
Each time we went down the lazy river it was NOT crowed, 
we were always able to get right and go along:) 

This is my daughter at one of the 3 enter/exits of the 
Lazy River! 
This is the one nearest the Big Slides!!

There are 4 REALLY COOL slides up those steps!!
My family gave them all a go!!
My son liked the Hula loop Slide, that's the blue and white one at the VERY TOP!! 
My daughter and J liked the Big Kahuna, that's the Big blue one in the picture above! 
My son, and my Daughter further down the Lazy River at another enter/exit! 
This one is the closet to the children's play pool!! 
My kids enjoyed playing here and they are NOT little children:)
There was water falling and being shot from everywhere! 
They were laughing, even at their ages, at ever station:)

Everyone in the family LOVED the New wave pool
I would get in a tube and the waves would take me back to the 
wave pool edge...
So much fun!!

There were PLENTY of shaded areas!
I also like that the park allows you to bring 
in your own coolers!!

There was also a great PARTY area!
You can rent this area or any cabana for a Party or Reunion.
The Cabanas were adorable!

Also available with your water park admission is entrance is an indoor pool with lanes, slide and diving board! 

The park had many water fountains and also had a snack 
and snow cone stand!

MY 2 Cents!!
Its Defiantly worth the drive! 
We drove more than an hour to get there from our home town!! The drive that day was awesome! Sun was shinning and kids were getting along:) 

When you go to Water Works you will have a great time if you take only 2 things ~ flip flops and sun screen!! 
Flip flops because you wont be able to take more then a couple of steps on the concrete its soo hot! Sun Screen because the wave pool has no covering and lazy river only has a few spots with shade. We are recovering from Texas size sunburns..:) :) :)
