    Yep this is it. Can be squished if you're flat on your back or only tilted slightly to the right.

    That's why first aid/CPR position for pregnant women is to wedge something under their right side so they are tilted left.

    Default Re: Left or right?

    Apparently tilting to the right side is better for digesting food faster and left side for sleeping
