Insomnia during pregnancy is usually caused by discomfort on the growing abdomen and stress from expecting a new baby. You can try several things from home to help you relax your body and mind like: taking a warm bath and lighting up some of your favorite scented candles, listen to relaxing music before bedtime, or even adjusting the room temperature to where you feel most comfortable. As far as removing the discomfort from the abdomen goes, I?d suggest going out and purchasing a pregnancy body pillow. It?s designed to curve with your body and give support so you should feel more comfortable and in return cure your pregnancy insomnia.
