A Few Questions

mimi - July 5

I am 16 weeks, and I was wondering when to stop sleeping on my back, and why I should stop...?! Also, my hair on my stomach is getting black. Does this go away? I have black, kind of long hairs around my areolas, too. Is this normal, and will they go away, too? One more thing......Is it normal for my stomach to hurt when I wake up in the mornings? Thanks a Bunch!

Get yourself into the habit of sleeping on your left side now. This is the best side to sleep on. When you sleep on your back, and sometimes your right side, there's pressure place on your inferior vena cava, the main source of blood flow between your lower half and upper half, influencing your baby's flow of blood and flow to your legs & arms too. It can cause your arms & legs to become numb and make you uncomfortable, which will wake you up should you happen to roll onto your back during the night. If you wake up and find yourself on your back, don't worry, just roll back onto your left side. Using body pillows helps. The hair on your stomach & b___sts is normal, but it differs for each woman as to whether or not it will go away. I'm not sure about the stomach pain in the morning. It could be round ligament pain from your expanding uterus and that's just when you notice it most, but ask your doctor just to be on the safe side.

I sleep on my back for very short periods of time and I'm 23 wks. They say absolutely not after you begin your 3rd trimester.
