I am 16 weeks pregnant and i know that i am suppose to be sleeping on my left side....but my back just cant take sleeping on the same side all night. Any suggestions as to safe sleeping positions?? I have tried both with a pillow between my knees and without it.  I know that laying on my back or right side can limit oxygen to the baby.

Please help, this is going to be a long sleepless miserable pregnancy if i dont figure something out.

Thank you!

i think the sleeping on your back is a myth isnt it? idk, i somehow always slept kinda on my stomach/side....i slept with a pillw tucked on the side of my tummy and slept that way
