Being able to lay flat on my back comfortably sounds like heaven right about now.

I cannot wait until I can sleep on my back again. All this tossing and turning and DH waking up in the middle of the night to turn me over because im on my back when I shouldn't be is getting old quick. lol
I remember after having my DS I was always sleeping on my stomach because it was so much comfier and i've never been a stomach sleeper.
Maybe it's that whole can't have what you want syndrome. Hahaha
Jessica, I'm like you - I sleep on my stomach usually with one of my legs bent. I can still *sort of* do that with a pillow but it's way more on my side of course. So yeah, nights just consist of me turning from one side to the next and getting up to pee 1-2 times.
And I try to sleep on my left side, but my right side is more comfortable. I think my baby is more on my right side because my belly button isn't centered.
Ack! I WISH I got up to pee 1-2 times! I got up SIX times last night and I stopped all liquid at 7pm). I was only in bed for 7 hours, so that averages out to one an hour almost...no WONDER I'm always so sleepy!!
Elizabeth - I start out on my left side. Then my hip hurts, so I turn over to my right side...where the baby then lays on some nerve that feels like my leg is ON FIRE, so then I turn back over. If I can't fall asleep quickly, I get mad, get my pillow and go lay on the couch. Flipping over from side to side HURTS down there. So does getting up to pee. Also, when I do finally fall asleep, I generally wake up to being sorta on my stomach. Not completely, my arms and legs and pillows are elevating me off of it, plus I'm not completely turned that way... but it's definitely more "stomach" than "side" and that worries me.
I am definitely a stomach sleeper which stinks since I can't sleep on my stomach now. I am learning to try and take turns with my left and right side. I am trying to avoid sleeping on my back though sometimes I will wake up on my back and freak out. And I am definitely getting up like 6 to 7 times a night to pee. It is so much work just to get myself out of bed to pee and it is so painful down there in my hoo hah area.I'm so sore I feel like someone took a sledge hammer and knocked the crap out of me. Definitely feeling the pain Jess.
