The nurse-practitioner at my doctor's office said it's safe to sleep on your back until you start noticing problems that occur when you sleep on your back, such as shortness of breath, changes in blood pressure, or swelling in your hands/feet.  I didn't have to start sleeping on my side until about 30 weeks, but I know it comes earlier for many.  I knew it was time when it started seeming more difficult to breathe when I would lie on my back.  When you do switch to your side, it's best to lie on your left side.

As long as you're comfortable, you can sleep on your back.

When I was pregnant I slept on my back until I noticed I couldn't breathe as well. I was about 30 weeks ish.
