  • They say to try and sleep on your left side. Its better for you and baby. I swap a lot because of my hips but never sleep on your back as it will cause ur bp to drop and u can get really dizzy.

  • Most Physicians recommend that a woman sleep on her left side while pregnant. This allows for the maxium blood flow to the baby and it will also improve kidney function for the mother.

  • Besides laying on the left side try putting a pill between your knees to help keep you aligned.
