A consistent routine can be helpful.
Having a set drill you go through every night could be the golden ticket for a good night's sleep. Not only is it soothing, it may help send cues to your body that it's time for some shut-eye.
"I make sure to eat less acidic food before bed to avoid heartburn and use lots of pillow to support my belly," says WTE user M4M4EK. "But having a bedtime routine is key. I wind down, put the lights low, and put away any distractions." M4M4EK also incorporates meditation into her nightly routine on occasion, which can be extremely helpful in calming nerves. In addition to reducing pregnancy stress, meditation and relaxation techniques can help lower blood pressure and give you a more positive outlook. Mom-to-be shananagins86 also recommends meditation, as well as avoiding devices and sugar close to bedtime and having a small stretching routine and foot massage before hitting the hay. Count us in!
