I am currently in my 6th month of pregnancy, everytime I sleep on my right side I feel alot of discomfort and pain on the right side of my stomach. however I feel no pain when I sleep on left side. is this normal? what causes this pain? pls help

Chithra Sreejith

s. sleep on ur left side always. it's normal during pregnancy. only ur left side allows blood to circulate well


I know left side is best but I need to know if this pain on right is normal? and if everybody gets it? and what causes it?

Dr.Srujana Kona( PT)

Sleep on to ur left side.


ya this is normal i was also feeling the same during my pregnancy


but it is absolutely normal

isha sharma

baby moment and size increase cause discomfort and pain on right side and from right side blood don't circulate too.. So from left side bood circulate and baby moment is normal so you dnt feel pain on left


look if u continously lye on left it vl uncomfortable too.so keep on changing time to time but try more left side .this is just six month going it vl increase as the time pass


thanks all for all ur advice

left is beneficial for the growth of the baby. the baby gets more oxygen. sleeping on your right makes it uncomfortable for the baby and the baby gets less oxygen. in your RHS as well on lying on your back. so avoid.
