Hi Nisha,

If you typically sleep on your back, it's safe to continue doing so through the first trimester. But as your uterus gets heavier around mid-pregnancy, it's best to start sleeping on your sides.

Pregnant women who sleep on their back or on the right side, have a higher chance of stillbirth, studies say. Lying on your back, exerts greater pressure on the inferior vena cava, the largest vein which returns blood to your heart. Lying on the right side exerts pressure on the aorta, the largest artery which carries oxygen rich blood from your heart to the rest of your body. This in turn, can affect the supply of blood and nutrients to the placenta that nourishes the baby.

All you can do it train yourself to sleep on your side by using a pregnancy pillow which keeps you propped up from both sides. That will help with lesser chances of you going on your back in middle of sleep unknowingly. You can also use a pillow between your legs for comfortable side sleeping.

Hope this helps.
