How did you transition to sleeping on your side?

I'm a belly and back sleeper. The reasons I can't sleep on my belly were blatant but I was really upset that I can't sleep on my back. I'm trying to get my body used to side sleeping but it isn't working out so well. Do you think it'll happen more naturally when i get a bigger belly? How did you make the transition?

  • LOL.....the belly forced me off my belly. I dont know how anyone can sleep on there belly preggo!!!! I have tried and I feel like I am lying on a ball! But if they get sleep that way more power to them. I use a tone of pillows when I can sleep.....not sleeping makes the hospital bed that much more comfy!!!!

  • The pillows make it alot easier! Although really getting good sleep while pregnant is close to impossible.

  • I never changed. I would sleep on my back eventually even if I started on my side and I was fine and my baby was fine. but for comfort as I got bigger I could put a pillow behind me which would keep me from rolling completely to my back.

  • I got a bunch of pillows...that helps. Plus as you progress you tend to just naturally sleep on your side, and the baby usually chooses which side it is..lol.

  • I had pillow on both sides of me so that I didn't fall completely on my back or my belly, and the baby will decide which side it is.
