When it gets uncomfortable! Propping yourself up a bit is a good idea if you can't get comfy on your side.

Sweet! I read somewhere it was dangerous due to baby cutting circulation off somewhere. Back it is!!!

Yeah OP you are right. It's around 16 weeks that you should stop sleeping on your back. That said, my ob said don't stress too much because if you are cutting off oxygen to the baby you will feel extremely nauseous etc before baby is in any danger.

You could try sleeping on your side - but every time I did this I kept waking up on my back! Towards the end of my pregnancy I'd wake up gasping for air, roll back onto my side only to wake up on my back again.
Try not to stress too much

I believe also that it's better to sleep on your left side than your right due to the above mentioned reason.

When I side sleep I sleep on my left anyways cause both dp and I can't sleep facing each other. I just can't get comfy on my side!
