The reason people say that its "bad" to sleep on your right side is because there is an artery in that area that can be pinched from the weight of the baby causing a slower blood flow and oxygen flow to the baby. Its not bad but its better to lay on your left side. It dosnt do any dammage if you lay on your right side thats the only side i can sleep on. I cant get to sleep any other way. Hy DH told me this and he is an RN that works in OB and in labor and delivery. So he kinda knows his shit when it comes to stuff like this.
