Changes in hair and skin - best sleeping position during pregnancy

Skin and hair changes during pregnancy: Hormonal changes taking place in pregnancy will make your nipples and the area around them go darker. Your skin color may also darken a little, either in patches or all over. Birthmarks, moles and freckles may also darken. Some women develop a dark line from their belly buttons to down. These changes will gradually fade after the baby has been born, although your nipples may remain a little darker.
If you sunbathe while you are pregnant, you may find that you tan more easily. Protect your skin with a good, high-factor sunscreen. Don’t stay in the sun for very long.
Hair growth is also likely to increase in pregnancy. Your hair may also be greasier. After the baby is born, it may seem as if you are losing a lot of hair. In fact, you are simply losing the extra hair that you grew during pregnancy.

It might be more comfortable to lie on one side with a pillow under your tummy and another between your knees.    
Sleep difficulty in pregnancy     
Late in pregnancy it can be very difficult to get a good night’s sleep. It can be uncomfortable lying down or, just when you get comfortable, you find that you have to get up to go to the toilet.
Some women have strange dreams or nightmares about the baby and about the birth. Talking about them can help you.
