Sleep positions while you’re pregnant

As your pregnancy progresses, sleeping may become a little more uncomfortable each month.

The American Pregnancy Association offers these suggestions to help you sleep more comfortably during pregnancy:

* Try sleeping on your side — particularly your left side, if it’s comfortable. Bend your knees, and place a pillow between your knees.

* Also try a pillow under your belly, for support.

* If heartburn bothers you, prop up your upper body with pillows.

n If you feel short of breath, lie on your side or propped up with pillows.

n You should avoid sleeping on your back and on your stomach during pregnancy. courtesy healthday
