While your body is focused on providing nourishment for your growing baby, your skin doesn’t always mesh well with the changes your body is going through. Not to mention, an itchy stomach is common during pregnancy and can keep you up throughout the night. Massage basq NYC's Lavender Calming Oil onto your skin or add a few drops to bath water to replenish your itchy, dry skin. Enjoy a deeper sleep after easing stress and tension with this lavender infused product.

Bamboo Sheets

Bamboo Sheets

Hot flashes are common during pregnancy. Luckily, bamboo sheets are composed with fast-wicking fabrics that will help keep you cool and comfortable throughout your slumber. Swap your cotton sheets to take advantage of bamboo sheets’ thermal-regulating properties that will adjust to your body quickly, meaning you won’t wake up in a sweat anymore. Better yet, the bamboo yarn is softer than traditional cotton yarn, so you’ll be excited to slip into these sheets every night. ($70 - $100; bedbathandbeyond.com)

Boppy Pregnancy Wedge

Boppy Pregnancy Wedge

If a pregnancy pillow is taking up too much space in your bed, opt for a wedge. Similar to the body pillow, a wedge provides extra support for your back and tummy throughout the night. If you're prone to tossing and turning, the wedge can help distribute your belly weight to avoid straining your hips and back. You can even slide the wedge underneath your regular pillow to alleviate heartburn and reflux that often comes along with pregnancy. ($13; shop.boppy.com)

No matter your preference, the soothing sounds of nature can help you fall asleep. And post-pregnancy, that white noise may also work to calm your newborn. ($25; amazon.com)
