Hard To Sleep And Easily Startled When Falling Asleep At 7 Weeks Pregnant?
I am 7 weeks pregnant, I have nausea, vomiting and other cravings. but for the past 3 days I have had trouble sleeping, even if I fall asleep I am often shocked, to the point that it makes me dizzy and it’s hard to sleep again… how is this, does this usually happen to pregnant women and how do I deal with it? thank you
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Congratulations on your pregnancy. In the first trimester or the first 3 months of pregnancy, it is natural for a woman to feel many physical and mental changes which are triggered by changes in hormone levels in the body, causing symptoms of nausea, vomiting and so on.
Regarding the condition of insomnia and being easily startled when falling asleep, it is necessary to examine again its relationship with pregnancy. Try to pay attention to how you feel that makes it difficult to sleep. Do you feel nauseous to sleep, or do you feel anxious about your pregnancy, or you feel always hungry, or even not sleepy at all for no particular reason.
So is the surprise. Was the surprise because it was a certain loud sound, or just any sound, or was it startled like waking up from a dream. Communicating this information to your obstetrician will help him determine what specific treatment can be given.
In general, what you can do to help with sleep disorders are:
No naps Only use the bed to sleep Consuming warm milk before bed No use of devices before bed
In addition to caring for your pregnancy, you should avoid cigarette smoke, consume caffeinated drinks such as coffee, use drugs without a doctor's recommendation, consume unhealthy foods, and continue to regularly check your pregnancy with a gynecologist.
