Congrats on getting to the third trimester – the final phase of your pregnancy journey!
Your body will now find ways to deal with the plethora of changes happening internally. Though you don’t experience any vivid symptoms, you may find it uncomfortable to sleep, especially if you’re a first-time mom.
You may be intrigued to know, that your sleeping position during pregnancy third trimester is actually very crucial; mostly because your tummy is now growing larger to accommodate your growing baby. Below, we’ve decided the exact positions that could help you sleep comfortably and ensure that your baby is safe too.
Understanding Best Sleeping Positions During Third Trimester:
It is believed that during throughout your pregnancy, sleeping on your left side is probably the best. It allows perfect passage of blood and nutrients to your baby. At the same time, this position also keeps you from feeling all the undesirable symptoms of pregnancy.
- Sleeping on your back tends to cause nausea and morning sickness, and also affects the supply of blood and nutrients to your baby.
- While sleeping on your front… well, that’s not exactly going to be possible now, is it!
If you are not comfortable sleeping on your left side, it’s always better to start the habit while you are trying to conceive so as to avoid the uneasiness later.
