If you're expecting in 2012 and are finding it difficult to
sleep, then some light exercise could be just what you need to rest
more easily.

Louise Whyte, founder of Penelope Fitstar and a personal trainer
specialising in pregnancy and post-natal exercise, suggested that
mild physical exertion allows the body to wind down.

"Gets lots of fresh air and make sure that even if you are not
sleeping well you are getting plenty of 'feet up' rest," she

If getting comfortable in bed is one of your main problems, then
Ms Whyte advises getting hold of some specially-shaped cushions
that can improve your position.

Once you've welcomed your new baby, there are a number of things
to bear in mind, such as the temperature of their bedroom.

The NHS recommends a temperature of between 16 and 20 degrees C ,
as this will not pose a risk to your child's health.
