What's your favorite sleep position during pregnancy?

Last night the only way I could get comfortable was to sit on an ottoman at the side of the bed and lay my head down (so the baby would get off my ribs)...
My legs fell asleep eventually haha at least some part of me is getting some sleep!

  • When I was pregnant I had to sleep on my side or sitting up entirely. Whenever I laid on my back it felt like my daughter was crushing my organs, I couldn't breath. Also I never wanted my dh to touch me while I was trying to fall asleep, it just seemed uncomfortable. Which is weird b/c I'm a big cuddler. Even now, I can't fall asleep unless he's holding me. Weird.

  • I'm a stomach sleeper, and I managed some version of stomach sleeping through my whole pregnancy, using a body pillow to wedge my stomach between the pillow and the mattress, and wrapping my leg and arm over the pillow.
