    I was told that generally your body will wake you up or move you if your position is not right. I start on my left but often wake on my back or right. I then just change position again! Don't feel guilty just sleep as best you can. Your body needs rest to keep growing that little bubba! I also use hot packs. They seem to help. If I wake up for a while
    I also try having something small to eat as I have worked
    Out often I am really really hungry. And then can sleep again. Good luck.

    I swap too, apparently its better for blood flow or something to lie on your left. I get sore shoulders and hips if I lie on the one side too long though so I switch ot up!

    I'm the same too. Constantly switching sides. I also woke up one night in my back feeling dizzy and sick. So I try to stay on my sides. Lots of pillows too. My poor hubby gets woken up a lot cause I'm groaning on pain as I roll over.

    Hi MrsHoward,
    I've been advised not only by my GP but also in prenatal classes that sleeping on your back and right side restricts blood flow to your baby due to arteries that run along your right side and the weight of your uterus and baby when lying on your back. They also said not to panic if you find yourself waking in these positions but left side is preferred. When I going to sleep of a night, I just can't bring myself to deliberately fall asleep on my right or my back even though its soooo comfy!
