Health Tip: Sleep Positions While You're Pregnant

(HealthDay News) -- As your pregnancy progresses, sleeping may become a little more uncomfortable each month.

The American Pregnancy Association offers these suggestions to help you sleep more comfortably during pregnancy:

  • Try sleeping on your side -- particularly your left side, if it's comfortable. Bend your knees, and place a pillow between your knees.

  • Also try a pillow under your belly, for support.

  • If heartburn bothers you, prop up your upper body with pillows.

  • If you feel short of breath, lie on your side or propped up with pillows.

  • You should avoid sleeping on your back and on your stomach during pregnancy.
