Lack of Sleep During Pregnancy Ups Risk of High Blood Pressure
Date:10/1/2010

ffect blood pressure levels, Rosser said that the extra weight could cause sleep apnea, which is known to raise blood pressure.

But, Rosser added, it's definitely a good idea for women to get a good night's sleep, although doing so often becomes difficult as a pregnancy progresses.

"Women often take care of other people, but pregnant women need to carve out time to rest, either at night or with naps during the day," she said. Rosser also recommended avoiding caffeinated beverages altogether, and making sure you get enough water during the day. Women may also sleep better if they exercise during the day, she said.
