While your body is focused on providing nourishment for your growing baby, your skin doesn't always respond well to the changes your body is going through. An itchy stomach is common during pregnancy and can keep you up throughout the night. Replenish your itchy, dry skin with Sleepy Body Lotion from Lush. Moisturizing your belly not only relieves itching and keeps your skin silky soft, but it also helps reduce the possibility of stretch marks. The comforting aroma of lavender will make you feel at ease while the cocoa butter and almond oil hydrate your skin to keep you feeling soft and supple all night long. ($10; lushusa.com)

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)

If pregnancy is giving you heartburn, there's a good chance that it's hitting you hardest at night. Elevating your chest and head at night with a pillow can ease some of the symptoms, but you should try to have some antacid tablets closeby at all times—your nightstand is your best bet since heartburn has been known to wake pregnant women in the middle of the night. Avoid antacids with aluminum because it can lead to constipation. ($8; target.com)
