I am 7 months pregnant and can't sleep, what should I do?

Obviously, at this gestational age, sleeping face down is impossible. We recommend that you sleep on one side, especially the left side, which eases blood supply to the fetus. Sleeping with your legs bent, using a pillow between them if necessary, is usually the solution for women who suffer from swollen legs during pregnancy.
