Okay I am in my 17th week of pregnancy. I've heard that sleeping on your back can cause the baby harm. Well, I try hard to sleep on my sides, it takes forever to get to sleep because they are a little sore. Also I wake up many times a night on my back, I quickly get on my side and try to reposition myself so that maybe I won't wake up on my back. I constantly fight myself. What am I to do? What should I do? Has it already harmed my baby? What could it do to my baby (can it kill my DD or DS?)

It's all about blood flow, there is a main artery that when you sleep on your back the weight of the baby reduces the blood flow through that artery. You are OK now, but by around 28 weeks when the baby gets bigger you may notice this more. I kept ending up on my back just like you but now I'm 29 weeks and I will wake up if I roll on my back.
