A Patient’s Guide to Pregnancy Insomnia

U.S. News & World Report on what to know about symptoms, causes of and treatments for sleeplessness during pregnancy.

Dimitriu says there’s “some evidence that sleep apnea might also get worse in pregnancy,” and this may be related to weight gain associated with the developing baby. Sleep apnea is a condition in which you stop breathing momentarily multiple times during the night. This can cause you to wake up frequently, and you might not even know it’s happening. Sleep apnea can be a serious condition, so “that’s something to watch out for,” Dimitriu says. If you start snoring while you’re pregnant, snoring worsens or you develop any sort of breathing issue, talk with your doctor.
