  • Yes, it's safe (as in it's not going to kill you or the baby) up until the end, although you probably won't want to because it becomes uncomfortable. I was always most comfortable on my side with pillows all around me and between my knees.

  • Yes, it's fine. Just follow what your body tells you, if it hurts to lay a certain way then don't.

  • A large pregnant uterus can cut off circulation through the inferior vena cava if you sleep on your back. It's something to consider later in your pregnancy.
