Sleep During Pregnancy
Most pregnant women will sleep more than normal during the first trimester of their pregnancies. But don't be fooled, this period of getting extra hours of sleep won't last forever for expectant moms. As the baby grows, a pregnant woman's body will undergo a number of changes, many of which make sleeping & finding a comfortable position in order to sleep, very difficult.
Causes of Sleep Problems During Pregnancy
In the later stages of pregnancy, especially during the third trimester, many women find it hard to find a comfortable sleeping position. This is mostly due to the fact that the fetus has grown large enough to significantly increase the size of the mother's uterus and, therefore, her abdomen.
In addition to having a hard time finding a comfortable sleeping position, pregnant women often find it hard to shift positions in bed. More Information
