I sleep on my back at some point every night. Honestly, that is sometimes the only position I sleep in comfortably for an extended period of time, but as soon as I get uncomfortable I roll over to my side. I have read and heard that you shouldn't sleep on your back once you reach 20 weeks.

I think it's kind of a myth. Your body will tell you if you shouldn't be lying on your back (my back hurts like crazy if I try to fall asleep on it, but I will wake up on my back even if I prop myself up).
Side is best, but some of the YOU HAVE TO business is kind of exaggerated.
MeghanKG:I'm still sleeping on my stomach and dreading the day my body lets me know I shouldn't do it anymore. I won't purposely avoid sleeping in a certain position until its uncomfortable and obvious that I need to switch.
Definitely this - I'm waiting for my body to inform me when what I'm doing isn't "good" for me anymore!
