I guess you're not supposed to sleep on your back, it constricts the major blood vessels and things to the baby but I just always slept on my left side. I know it hurt to sleep on my tummy but I did it anyway, that was my favorite position.

Sleeping on your back can be more dangerous than sleeping on ur tummy. Laying on your back causes baby to shift into your back and press on your organs and spine.

Yes I have woke up like that before. And everything was fine. I would talk to your OB and see let them know whats up. What I used to do is I ended up buying 2 more body pillows to surround me one underneath me and one on either side of me. I dunno if it helped but I stopped having belly pains. Even with waking up on my stomach.

Yeah, I've done that before. It stops once you get too big to roll onto your tummy! There's nothing you can really do if you're a stomach sleeper, like I am. That's probably the only drawback to being pregnant.

I find myself on my back all of the time.  I fall asleep on my side, then my hip hurts like hell, then i wake up on my back.  I have to keep a pillow beside me so that when I do roll onto my back, one side is slightly elevated, I guess that is better than nothing?!  If my husband sleeps right beside me i am fine, because I know I cannot roll anywhere, but as soon as he turns over, i do too!

i sleep on the left side on my stomach like half way on and off my stomach and it is the only way to sleep and my doctor has never told me which way to sleep and not to sleep!!!  so i will continue to do it until she says not to!!!!

I never rolled over in my sleep. If I needed to turn I would always wake up and roll over...It sucked because I was waking up to roll all the time. I normally was on my sides, or back even though I wasn't supposed to be. My hips would be killing me when I would wake up. It's just one of the things you have to deal with I guess...

I've been told the best way to sleep is on your left side, i know they sell wedges to put on either side of you so that you don't roll onto your back

With my 1st child... I slept on my belly the whole 9 mo.'s
Dr told me if I was comfortable then there was nothing to worry about.
Baby turned out fine, he's now 6 1/2yrs old.

GOOD LUCK

My SIL was very uncomfortable during her pregnancy.  So they went to a seminar somewhere in the south & stopped at a convention where she tested this  awesome couch....somewhere else after the seminar... anyways, my sil has this awesome couch that she had tested out and then it was sent to her via fed ex or what ever.. It is expensive, but omg it is worth the money and the comfortness of this couch was awesome.. it molds to your body.  My sil was able to sleep every which way possible.  


I want this now.. .LOL
