23 Weeks Pregnant

Helpful Tips for Mom at 23 Weeks Pregnant

Many doctors recommend that pregnant women sleep on their sides (not their backs or their stomachs), so that blood flow to the placenta is not restricted. If you find this uncomfortable, try placing a pillow between your knees to relieve the pressure of your weight while lying on your side. If you are experiencing aches in the small of your back, lying down, getting massages, and applying a heating pad or hot water bottle to the area can help.
