Health Tip: Sleep Better During Pregnancy
Cut out caffeine, and observe a regular sleep schedule

(HealthDay News) -- A growing belly and various aches and pains can make sleep difficult during pregnancy.

The American Academy of Family Physicians offers these suggestions for a more restful sleep during pregnancy:

  • Avoid caffeinated beverages. If you do indulge, only drink them in the morning or early afternoon.
  • In the hours before bedtime, limit fluids and don't eat a heavy meal.
  • Create a consistent sleeping and waking schedule.
  • Skip intense exercise just before bed in favor of a relaxing bath.
  • Press feet firmly against the wall if you have a leg cramp, or stand on the cramped leg.
  • If your doctor says it's OK, practice daily yoga to help manage stress. Taking a childbirth or parenting class may also help ease baby-related anxiety.
