5 Tips for Sleeping Well While Pregnant

Some people say that not sleeping well while pregnant is helping your body prepare for not getting any sleep once the baby arrives. I say, that’s crap. Get as much sleep as you can before that baby comes!

Some common problems that keep you from sleeping while pregnant are: heartburn, back pain, snoring (this is a problem if you’re husband wakes you up to tell you you’re snoring) and nasal congestion. At some point you might also deal with plain old insomnia and I couldn’t find a solution for that. But here are a few things that helped me with the others.

– Don’t drink anything before bed.
– Take a couple Tums when you lay down to sleep and keep them on your nightstand in case you need them throughout the night.

Back Pain
– Splurge on a pregnancy body pillow like this one from Boppy. They are perfect for the pregnant body. A normal body pillow really doesn’t work as well.

Breathe Right strips worked for me. The one thing I didn’t like is that my nose would be really red in the morning from the adhesive.

Nasal Congestion
– I suffered from the worst nasal congestion when I was pregnant. And really, it wasn’t even quite congestion. It was actually sinus swelling so even if I could’ve taken cold medicine, I’m not sure it would’ve worked. The one thing that helped was a humidifier.

Hard Baked Eggs?

I know I’m a little late in posting this since I tried it over Easter, but still wanted to share. I had seen a few posts about baking, instead of hard-boiling, eggs. I happen to have a terrible stove top that takes about 2 days to boil water so I was game to give it a try.

It worked! And it was super simple! This is how I will make hard “boiled” eggs from now on.

I just put them in a muffin pan and put them in the oven at 300 degrees for 30 minutes. Followed immediately with an ice water bath.

We used them to color Easter eggs and then later to make deviled eggs. There was no difference between a boiled egg and the ones I baked. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
