Q:

Presently I am in 26th week, earlier i used to feel very comfortable to sleep on my left side but from past few days I am not able to sleep on left  and also my sleeping hour is been disturbed. Sometimes lying on back feels much better, is it fine to sleep in that position??



Harneet (clanpedia)

u can lay on ur back and then keep alternating between back left or right. try keeping pillows under back or under legs for extra support

Sleep on your left side. This is most preferred as, this position helps to bring the most nutrients and blood flow to baby. Keep your knees bent, you can sleep on your right also, but never sleep on your back as it can block blood supply from lower body to heart. It will also cause the uterus to put pressure on the spine, which can result in back aches.
* Use hot water bag for those pesky aches, but remember, never use it on or near your precious bump.
Remember, baby does not feel any discomfort, no matter how you sleep, she is safe and cosy in the amazing little world within your tummy. So you can safely focus on getting yourself comfortable
