Doctor Tips, Weeks 14-26

Supported by

Week 23

Weird dreams and disturbed sleep are common during pregnancy. More in week 23.

Sleep might be something that is eluding you lately. Many reasons can be contributing to this: your need to pee more as your uterus pushes on your bladder, the inability to get comfortable in one position for too long, aches or restless feelings in your legs, and weird dreams or stressful thoughts keeping you up at night. Trying not to drink a lot before bedtime can help with the frequent urination, and investing in a good body pillow can work wonders.

  1. This is one of the only memories I was actually able to keep up with during my 2nd pregnancy! With my 1st, I kept a pregnancy journal of sorts with things that were happening, doctor’s notes from each appointment, belly pictures each week, nursery updates… With #2, #1 was in full-blown toddler mode, so belly pictures were my only documented memory. I’m glad I made myself continue that tradition!

    1. It’s so true, the 2nd (and 3rd and 4th….) kids start having way less documentation even from before they are born! Thank goodness for smartphones these days 🙂
