How does pregnancy affect sleep?

Pregnancy and Sleep

Many women report daytime sleepiness during the first trimester of their pregnancy, when the body is hard at work forming the baby's various body systems. One way to combat fatigue is to try and fit in a quick nap at lunchtime whenever possible; eating small snacks frequently throughout the day also seems to help. By the second trimester, most women find they have as much energy as they had before becoming pregnant -- sometimes more.
