Im weird because for some reason when im pregnant I always want to sleep on my belly. Right now I sleep half on my side and half on my belly with a pillow next to me, but i am constantly moving all the time.

I just have a terrible time sleeping no matter what now. I'm usually a side sleeper also but yeah I toss and turn all night. Isn't it like a good 2 years until we sleep all night again anyways?

I keep leaning a bit too far too. I think it’s the guilt of watching how I sleep that keeps me waking up. Trust me my DH will wake me up I think if he sees me on my back.. Guilt guilt.. I thought the whole NOT sleeping on your back was for later on but I guess I am wrong.. Wouldn’t be the first time lol Smile

I'm usually a side sleeper but while pg I find it really uncomfortable. I've been all over the place lately with how I am sleeping.

My hips are hurting when I sleep on my sides. I broke out my pregnancy pillow and that helps some but what I have been doing lately is propping up one side of my back with the pillow so I am not flat on my back but it takes the pressure off my hips.

I am a tummy sleeper so I am having a hard time getting used to the side sleeping. Has anyone heard that left side is perferable to right side?

Yes I've read this in a few books. Apparently there is a large vein that runs on the right side, so it's preferred to sleep on the left for optimal blood flow...but not "nessecary."

Yeah I am sleeping with a pillow under my tummy already on my side. I wake on my back all the time, but what can you do? I just flip back onto my side.
I actually sleep like a rock right now, but that is because we just put the two girls together in one bed now & the two year old quit sleeping through the night. Ugh....it is always something. Sleep........what is that? Smile
