Though a pregnancy pillow can be used at any part of your pregnancy, it can best serve your needs when used at the time when you need it most. The question now is where are you in your pregnancy? If you are about to enter the second trimester of your pregnancy, you may want to consider finding the best pillow for pregnancy as it can relieve you of so many pregnancy-relaled pains during this time. During the second trimester of your pregnancy, you may experience the following changes: Weight gain. You will add more pounds as your baby grows. During this period you may see put on about 3 to 4 lbs. Breast growth. Your milk glands enlarge as well as adds in a few deposits of fat. These changes prepare your body for breastfeeding. Braxton Hicks contractions. Also known as false labor. This happens as your uterine muscles tighten as your uterine prepares for labor and delivery. Pregnancy weight, sleepless nights, physical pains, and psychological exhaustion will drain your energy faster causing you to feel tired more often. Nasal and oral health issues. Hormonal changes will affect your oral ligaments and bones causing you to experience several oral health issues, such as loose teeth and bleeding or swelling gums. Urinary tract infections. As your uterus expands, it may cause pressure on your bladder preventing it to empty completely when it should. As your uterus expands, it may press food and acid back into your esophagus and cause this condition. Back, pelvic, neck, shoulder, hip and other body pains. The expanding muscles and ligaments around your tummy and pelvic area will cause several pains that you may have to endure as your pregnancy progresses. This can be caused by the pressure on the nerves and muscles as your body compensates for the growth of the baby inside your tummy. If you have a high-quality pregnancy pillow, you can position your self on it to help minimize these symptoms. You can also use this pillow for other purposes as well, even long after you have finally given birth. How will you know that it’s time to buy a pregnancy pillow? Here are the signs to consider: Lower back pain. Experiencing lower back pain is one of the usual disruptive symptoms to consider when thinking of finding the best pillow for pregnancy. Studies, including this one, indicate that about 50% -80% of expecting women will report having experienced a back pain. The most common cause of this pregnancy pain is the additional weight gained during pregnancy. However, it can also be caused by the changing hormones, stress, poor posture, as well as in the change in the center of gravity. Health experts recommend sleeping on the left side while cradling a pregnancy pillow so that all areas experiencing discomfort will be provided equal support. Leg problems. Leg pain and cramps are also common problems during the second trimester. With a wedge-type pregnancy pillow between your legs, they can be provided adequate support while you rest or lie on your left side while on your bed or on the sofa. This position will also stimulate blood circulation, thus preventing swelling and cramps. The Mayo Clinic recommends the following to help relieve leg pains and cramps: Stretching the calf muscles. Keeping yourself properly hydrated. Wearing the right footwear. Staying active Lack of deep sleep. Having a good quality sleep is crucial for an expecting woman to experience a healthier pregnancy. However, many pregnant mothers are deprived of having a good quality of sleep. As a result, they suffer from insomnia and exhaustion, as well as a lack of sleep. Researchers affiliated with the National Sleep Foundation came up with a recommendation on the proper sleep duration by age. This recommendation was based on a review of more than 300 research studies. This indicates that a pregnant woman may need more hours than the usually recommended 7-9 hours of sleep or a few more naps throughout the day. If you have a maternity pillow to rest your aching body while you sleep, you can sleep longer peacefully. You won’t have any sleepless nights, your body pains will dramatically be minimized, and you will feel totally relaxed as you doze off for that needed rest. Headaches. Expecting moms also complain of having headaches, especially during the second trimester. With the right pillow like a maternity pillow, you can have something to prop your head properly and help alleviate both minor and severe headaches like migraines. A pregnancy pillow is made to be firm enough to keep your head, neck, and spine aligned. There are more pains that you may experience as your pregnancy progresses, including hemorrhoids, heartburn, round ligament pain, and even a health condition called the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Sleeping on your side with a pregnancy pillow will help provide support to problem areas and relieve the pain that you are experiencing. Conclusion Pregnancy pillows come in various shapes, sizes, fillings to accommodate particular body pains experienced by expecting moms. To find the best pillow for pregnancy, you need to define what exactly is bothering you. Then consider your budget for the pillow, the size of your bed, the filling used for the pillow, the type of pillow that will provide the needed support, and other factors that will allow you to get the most value from the pregnancy pillow that you intend to purchase.
