Question: During sleeping on ma right side i feel chest pain. Why it is so? Usually i sleep on left side but sometimes i move to right side. At that time i felt pain.What is the reason?
Answer: Dear chest pain could be because of 2 reason.
One is Indigestion refers to gas trapped in your stomach or chest.The pain can sometimes feel similar to heart attack symptoms, but it starts in the lower breastbone and moves upward.Gas can cause a sharp pain, while heartburn is more of a burning or warming pain and can lead to a burning sensation in the back of your throat.
Secondly Your expanding uterus can put pressure on your diaphragm. Your breasts become larger, and your rib cage widens. Both of these changes cause pressure and, possibly, pain along with shortness of breath.Try lying on your left side, which takes the pressure off major blood vessels.Sometimes, though, pregnancy is just uncomfortable, and there’s little you can do but hang in there until your baby is ready to be born.
If its indigestion due Indigestion below are some of my own tried and tested tips for gas during my pregnancy - :
1.) Try smaller, more frequent meals
3.) Drink plenty of water
4.) Watch what food you eat
5.) Avoid artificial sweeteners, carbonated drinks and fatty fried foods.
6.) Under situations of severe gas, a small piece of jaggery will help relieve it. Based on my personal experience as nothing worked for me in 8th month and this remedy helped.
7.) Having green leafy veges and fruits.
8.) Fiber intake should be increased more of salads with lunch and dinner will help. Morning breakfast you can have with oats to help in constipation.
Hope this helps
Question: During pregnancy why it is said to sleep on left side n not on right sleep? Is sleeping on right side dangerous fr baby?
Answer: You should not lie on your back especially in the second and third trimester because your growing uterus weight and your baby weight will compress your major blood vessels and will decrease the blood flow to your baby.
that means decreased nutrition as well.
so you might get dizzy and nauseous if you wake up from this lying position.
it is better to avoid lying on your back.
it is advised that you sleep on your left side which does not interfere with blood circulation as well as promotes healthy nutrition to your baby.
Question: hello ma'am...I feel comfortable when I sleep on right side...but everybody advises that during pregnancy I should sleep either on left side nor right or straight...plzz suggest which side should I sleep??
Answer: hello dear
Sleeping on one side with your knees bent is likely to be the most comfortable position. You can use pillows under your belly, between your legs, and behind your back if you like.
Lying on your back in a half-sitting position, propped up against some pillows, is also fine and can be helpful if you suffer from heartburn.
Tender breasts and a growing belly soon make sleeping on your stomach impossible. And as your pregnancy progresses, you'll need to avoid lying flat on your back as well.
In that position, the weight of your uterus presses on your spine, back muscles, and major blood vessels, which can decrease blood flow around your body and to your baby.
Doctor recommend sleeping on your left hand side. This position prevents the heavy uterus putting pressure on your liver, and continues to allow the baby to receive the right amount of nutrients and oxygen through the placenta.
In fact, not only does this position not restrict blood flow, it actually improves circulation which means your body won't have to work as hard to ensure you have optimal blood flow for you and your baby.
