Insomnia is something that many women experience when they are pregnant. If you are suffering from this, make sure you avoid turning on the light. Instead of getting up, rest in your bed in an attempt to refresh your mind and body for the next day.

When you are trying to become pregnant, there are many things that could affect your chances. Some items are related to your health and are not controllable. However, there are also several things that are related to your lifestyle that you can control. Surprisingly, your sleep pattern is actually something that could affect your fertility. Here are a few things to keep in mind. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Darkness

The first thing you should keep in mind is that it is always best to keep your room as dark as possible when you are sleeping. Research shows that darkness is important for women who are trying to conceive because it can actually improve their reproductive health. Once you become pregnant, it is also something that can protect the health of your baby as well.

Melatonin

One of the reasons your sleep habits are so important to your fertility is because of melatonin. Melatonin is a hormone that is produced in response to darkness. While you are sleeping, melatonin levels remain high and they will taper off as it become lighter in the room. Melatonin has many benefits for the body, but one of the most important is its effect on the ovulation cycle. When women have healthy supplies of melatonin, their ovulation cycles are likely to be regulated, which makes it easier for them to conceive.

How Much Sleep is Necessary?

Women who are pregnant, or trying to get pregnant, should get 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep in a dark room. When the light is turned on at night, this suppresses melatonin production in women, which could cause disruption to their ovulation cycle. In some studies, it is even suggested that disruption from light during a pregnancy could affect the behavior of the baby once it is born.

To help make sure you are able to accomplish this type of darkness, start by making sure your bedroom is dark. There should also be no light coming in from the outside or from televisions or other devices. If you do prefer to sleep with a night light, choose one that is yellow or red. They will not disrupt your melatonin production like a blue or white one will.

Unfortunately, insomnia is something that many women experience when they are pregnant. If you are suffering from this, make sure you avoid turning on the light. Instead of getting up, rest in your bed in an attempt to refresh your mind and body for the next day. Remember, sleep is not the important part when it comes to melantonin production, darkness is.
