    When you get uncomfortable. Apparently you can just pop a cushion under ur right side and that will help the circulation. I'm 17 weeks and still good on my back and sleeping on my stomach.

    Default When to stop sleeping on my back?

    I'm 26 weeks and still sleep on my back a lot. I do sleep with my head/shoulders a bit elevated and sometimes a cushion under one side.
    If I fall asleep on my side I often wake up on my back!!

    I'm 25 weeks and also am still laying on my back!

    It's the only thing that will completely quash my constant back pain. I also don't always lay on my left side :O

    Just do what makes you comfortable and listen to your body and baby. If you start feeling dizzy laying on your back you could be cutting off a vein in your back with the pressure, but if you feel fine and baby doesn't contest, do it!

    It can compress the vena cava, causing circulation probs to bub.

    I still feel comfy on my back, I just put a pillow under my right hip. If i try to sleep on my side I end up rolling over anyway. 26 weeks here.

    I was never told not to sleep on my back. I was a tummy sleeper before pregnancy, still was till about half way through and then it got uncomfortable. DD IS 6.5 months now and have only slept on my tummy maybe once since? It's not comfy anymore lol

    Default When to stop sleeping on my back?

    Hmm I'm 33 weeks and sleep mostly on my left side as that's the most comfiest. But occasionally I wake up and am basically laying on my stomach. I'm not quite sure how I can do this and it's not uncomfortable but doesn't seem to fuss bubs. I guess mayb cos I'm sort of on my stomach but with one leg bent and the other straight so only really laying on half my belly?? But iv never heard not to sleep on my back and this is my third.
