that  about  751 pregnant women were put under a study to know the effect of sleeping  on weight gain in pregnant women .

The researchers monitored the sleep patterns to them within 7 days straight

They noticed that two-thirds of women’s ranging of sleep hours,are between 7 to 9 hours a night.
The researchers found that sleeping for a short period or long, has a close relationship with the weight gain of women during pregnancy.

The researchers said that sleep very few hours or too many at night may lead to gain a lot of weight during pregnancy.

Researcher Dr. Francesca Fako Said : “We know that lack of sleep during pregnancy linked to the problems of pregnancy,

showing the potential mechanism for weight gain such as lack of sleep in pregnancy study, and what devolves to negative results.”

Previous research indicated that lack of sleep associated with weight gain in women who are not pregnant, but the authors

of the new study wanted to examine the possible link between sleep and weight gain in pregnant women.
