Sleeping on the right side????

So I am 34 weeks and CANNOT sleep on my leftside. It really hurts my hips and back... So I have been sleeping on my rightside or back...

How bad is it? Our baby is moving fine, and this is baby 2 for us. It was not like this the first time around! My left side was fine to sleep on...

What do you think?

  • i agree w/ the others. sleep how you are most comfortable. sleeping on the left side maximizes circulation but if circulation was a big problem, you would move, even if you were sleeping.

    i'm generally most comfortable on my right side too but this week i've been getting horrible hip cramps if i try to sleep on my right side, so to the left side i go :( can't get comfy no matter what

  • I am 31 weeks with #4 and sleep on whichever side is comfortable. I believe as long as baby is moving fine and growing well, it should be okay. It's not like you are laying on your right side 12 hours straight.
