  • it's normal, but you shouldn't be lying on your back for much longer. not only is it bad for the baby's circulation, but as baby gets heavier, s/he can put pressure on your bowels and give you hemorrhoids. just a little fyi. =)

    as for circulation, it's best to lie on your left side. but either side is fine... no one can sleep on their left all night and be comfortable. just don't lie on your belly or back.
