No matter how tired you may get, do not take any sleeping aids or pills. As a pregnant woman, you should aim for at least 7 hours sleep every night. Make sleep a priority. There is no one who sleeps for hours that won't wake up feeling refreshed and revitalized.

Pamper yourself. Ask for help from family and friends if you need to. Take warm bathes. Ask your partner for a massage. Wear soft cozy clothings, watch TV, eat a snack, light your favourite candle, read a good book, sometimes take yourself on an outing or ask to be taken out.

Stay active everyday. Exercise releases endorphins that will lift your mood. You don't need any high-risk activity. Go for a walk, get involved around the house. You can also read more about suitable exercises for pregnant women.

Eat well. A balanced and varied diet will keep you healthy and help your baby grow and develop evenly.

Connect with other pregnant women and share things in common. Sharing your feelings with other moms going through similar experiences can help you feel less isolated.

Feeling emotional during pregnancy is common because of hormonal changes. But it is important to ask for help if you're feeling sad more than you are feeling happy.
