Sleep problems are common during pregnancy. Sleep studies tell us that hormonal changes, plus the discomforts of later pregnancy, can break up a pregnant woman's sleep cycle.
You can take a few simple measures to get the best possible sleep during pregnancy.
If you continue to have problems with insomnia, go to bed only when you're tired, and get out of bed when you're wide awake in the middle of the night.
Medicines are seldom used to aid sleep during pregnancy, because most are dangerous to a growing baby. If you have sleep apnea, continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) may be safe to use during pregnancy. Talk to your doctor about treatment options.
