Causes Of Difficulty Falling Asleep While 6 Months Pregnant?
Morning, I am 27 years old and currently pregnant my first child is 26 weeks old. I want to ask 3 days I have a very hard time sleeping even though sometimes I can’t sleep at all when I am sleepy, even in the afternoon I have trouble sleeping. Why well, does it have something to do with my fetus and if not can it affect my fetus? Thank you good morning
Hello Silvi, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
In women who are pregnant, hormonal changes as well as various physical changes experienced during pregnancy can also cause sleep disorders in the pregnant woman so that sleep difficulties during pregnancy can be said to be quite natural.
Difficulty sleeping itself is not dangerous for the fetus being conceived because most often this difficulty is caused by hormonal changes that are experienced, but can also be caused by increased size of the uterus that causes crushing on the surrounding organs causing complaints such as becoming more frequent urination at night, feeling good. , burning sensation in the chest, aches / aches in the legs, shortness of breath, or pain in the abdomen / lower back.
In the meantime, there are some things you can try to do at home first to help reduce complaints such as:
Make the same sleep schedule every day and maintain hygiene before sleep Relaxing yourself before going to bed Doing special exercise for pregnant women regularly Increase daily water intake, but limit intake when approaching bedtime Eat healthy foods, especially for dinner and provide a minimum distance 3-4 hours before bedtime If the things above have been done but the complaints still do not experience improvement, it helps you consult further with your obstetrician for further evaluation and determine whether you need treatment of certain drugs or not. It is not recommended to take any sleeping pills without a clear recommendation from your obstetrician.
I hope this helps.
