    i've heard that as long as you're still comfortable, it's fine to sleep however you want. my ob did say that after 24 weeks or so, if i wake up on my back to just turn to my side. i've also read that the left side is best for blood circulation for yourself and for baby.

  • My MW says whatever is comfortable.  I wake up on my back sometimes but she said that was ok.  She said my body would let me know.
  • Whatever is comfortable is okay, though i don't think that stomach sleeping is encouraged, but when you get to 25+ weeks i cant imagine it being all that comfortable either.   Left side is better for your digestion, blood flow for the baby, and oxygenation.

  • Not that I am a pro, but yes to all of the above. My doc said don't stress about it too much, your body will tell you.
  • I'm doing whatever is comfortable right now.  I can still sleep on my stomach, but have been trying to get used to sleeping on my side, since in a few weeks, the stomach won't be an option.  I've read that the left side is better, and that you should avoid sleeping on your back, but I am not really stressing about that stuff.
