I'm normally a side sleeper, and I curl up a bit, but for some reason I can't comfortably sleep on either side this pregnancy. No matter if I'm straight out or curled up. I have to go to sleep on my left side, because that is what I've done all my life, but its no longer comfy. I don't know if it has to do with the anterior placenta, or what, but it feels like something is being pushed up unnaturally toward the center of my belly and crushed when I sleep on my side. I now always wake up on my back, which is also becoming more uncomfy due to the weight of the belly. I feel like I can't breathe as well on my back.
With DS I slept on my side just fine the entire pregnancy and couldn't tolerate back sleeping at all.
Any ideas on what to do to help? Or why its like this? Its not terrible now, but if its already uncomfy at 18-19 wks, I don't really want to know what its going to feel like by the time I hit the 3rd tri.
