I wake up on my back

Alot!
I am starting to have trouble sleeping, I'm at 30 wks. I am for one thing HOT, and another just restlest. I wake up at 5:30 am every morning. But I also wake up lots thru the night and find that I'm on my back a lot. I try to stay on my sides but always seem to end up on my back. Do you think I am causing and harm to the baby?

  • HA! I slept on my back the entire pregnancy! the sides were NOT comfortable. My doctor said if that's the only way I'm comfortable then it's fine. :) I had a really healthy pregnancy though... as long as you don't have any health risk you should be fine on your back

  • Just don't sleep on your stomach and you should be fine!

  • I always heard the left side is the best to sleep on for circulation but I don't think your hurting the baby sleeping on your back. Next time you go for a checkup, just mention it and see what the OB says. Good luck!
