Young Pregnant Accidentally Sleeps On His Stomach.?
Afternoon, I want to ask, now my pregnancy is 9 weeks … when I sleep I often accidentally lie on my stomach, but it doesn’t take long because I feel uncomfortable, so I move often because the coughing is also uncomfortable when I sleep … does it have a bad effect on the fetus? Thank you
Hello Ms. Zhoranes,
Pregnant women may sleep on their stomach as long as the stomach is not enlarged and does not cause discomfort. At 9 weeks gestation the fetus is still very small, a thick uterus and amniotic fluid can protect the baby from pressure. However, if the abdomen has been enlarged, sleeping on his stomach should be avoided because it can create discomfort and may also put pressure on the baby.
The best position during pregnancy is tilted to the left. This position is known to expedite blood circulation to the fetus. Left tilt can also avoid excessive emphasis on the liver. But tilt left or right may be done.
If you often unknowingly change position during sleep, you can use a pregnancy pillow to provide a comfortable support during sleep.
