It should not affect your pregnancy, but cell phones should be placed on a nightstand at night and not a pillow or gown pocket.

Can I be pregnant if I was taking the pill, missed a few days. Had sex and he came inside me and then I fell asleep. I did take the pill that morning?
Always a chance...: A urine pregnancy test done correctly will give a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (or when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and therefore lead to a repeat test. If a woman has her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and the test is not needed yet. ...Read more
I'm 8 weeks pregnant. I can't fall asleep till 3, 4, 5 am. Than wake up between 8am-12pm than try to fall back asleep. I get up at 3 pm everyday. Help!
Delayed sleep: You seem to be sleeping enough, but at the wrong time. You need to restrict your sleep, so you can sleep at night. Try not to sleep after 12 noon, use any tool you can to stay awake, then try to sleep closer to midnight. It is very hard to sleep after 2 am. If you snore, you need to be checked for sleep apnea. ...Read more

Right hand is constantly asleep. It hardly ever stops been going on for a month. It's not from the position. I'm 5 months pregnant.
Dr J's correct: You're probably right handed. It is common, try and keep your hand elevated, Tylenol (acetaminophen) is ok to take (doesn't help much...), splints work best if you can keep from laying on your hand or leaving it in a dependent position (don't let your arm hang). It's a form of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in pregnancy, worsened by routine swelling in pregnancy. Avoid salt, keep hydrated, elevate the arm, & splint. GL. ...Read more
