its early stage, as well as the state of drowsiness.

Чем же так опасна бессонница в период of pregnancy? Of course,
a woman gets tired quickly during the day, because everyday affairs are no longer
made as easily as before. The position of the future mommy
obliges her to protect not only herself, but also the baby from sudden
movements, frequent tilting and weight lifting.

Any action requires concentration, and her insomnia
reduces and causes additional stress. AT своем положении
a pregnant woman can very easily get hurt even
performing the simplest movements, whether taking a shower or
leisurely walk. Against the background of unstable hormonal balance
irritability occurs which even occurs

Hormones and insomnia

First trimester With increasing term
of pregnancy причин для бессонницы становится все больше. More often
All this situation is associated with the restructuring of the hormonal system
organism. AT начале of pregnancy эстрогены (гормоны первой фазы
menstrual cycle) give way to progesterone – the second hormone
phases. Иначе его называют хранителем of pregnancy. Level up
progesterone leads the body to a state of complete readiness,
aiming it solely at the bearing of the fetus. Respectively,
even at night this hormone does not allow the future organism
mommies relax and rest, so a full sleep
is impossible.

ATторой триместр. When the second comes
триместра of pregnancy, общая картина частично меняется, и ночной
sleep is getting better. By this time, the woman’s body is already adapting.
to hormonal surge: relative stability comes
the nervous system, the pelvic organs, including the bladder,
intestine and liver, learned to adapt to the growing uterus.
The work of all organs is normalized, and the stomach is not yet so
increased to interfere with restful sleep.

again accompanied by insomnia, it is increasingly difficult to find a comfortable posture
for relax. Women who have a habit of sleeping on their stomachs or backs
very difficult to adapt to another position. AT этот период
physiological discomfort is observed: the future mommy
developing heartburn, aggravating in the prone position, there are pains in
спине и пояснице, и даже в состоянии покоя появляется dyspnea. TO
this time, the belly reaches a size that is difficult
find a comfortable sleeping position.

The situation becomes more alarming closer to childbirth from regular
lack of sleep and emotional disturbances, often turning into night
nightmares. Because of this, the dream becomes more disturbing and short.
A woman listens restlessly to her state of health, waiting
contractions, feels every movement of the fetus, which makes it impossible
her relax and fall asleep. Третий триместр of pregnancy
accompanied by another hormonal jump: progesterone levels
falls sharply before giving birth. The cause of poor sleep and difficulty with
falling asleep may be training contractions of the uterus, which
arise a few days before delivery.
