How are you sleeping? Back, sides, multiple positions, not sleeping at all, lol.




I find I'm most comfortable on my back, I toss and turn but usually end up back on my back. I know it's not ideal.

All of the above...and I'm still sleeping semi on my tummy some nights. I guess I do it in my sleep because it will wake me up after a while because I get uncomfortable. Mostly on my side though.

I have tried and tried to sleep on my sides, but I always end up on my back. It's the most comfortable. I never had this problem with my other pregnancies because I was only a side sleeper then.

Mostly sides but my hips end up hurting so I prop up with some pillows and sleep on my back too. I wake up half on my belly some mornings, but I'm sure I won't have many more weeks of that.

I pretty much have been sleeping on my left side. When I sleep on my right my hip starts to ache. I notice that I am on my tummy sometimes, but Im sure that will end soon enough!

every which way! lol..I usually start out on my half side/half tummy, turn to the other side at some point, back at some point, so on and so forth. I have never had an issue being on my back; even late in pregnancies. So if I sleep on my back for a few hours, it doesn't bother me. I also know that I am generally going to wake up and change positions every couple of hours or so anyways.

I try to fall asleep on my side but always end up semi on my tummy. I'm a tummy sleeper normally so it's hard to break the habit.

Sleep?? What's that? LOL I have slept like CRAP this week!
It is mainly on my left side, only cause I have always slept that way. But half on my tummy before my belly got big. I like my back, but I can't breath well that way. My arms and legs fall asleep fall asleep no matter how I lay. Sigh.

Same as usual, in my mostly-tummy position. I do have to shift sides a few time to get comfortable. and I wake up on my back, weirdly. I never sleep on my back.

Mostly on my sides. Last time i had to transition to sleeping in a recliner at around 34 weeks because of SPD and I think that will probably happen again.

I have a similar issue - not sleeping well at all and my arms/legs keep falling asleep too. Very annoying.

I'm not sleeping well. I start out on my side, and wake up to switch sides a lot, and often wake up on my back too. My shoulder and my ear will hurt when I wake up after sleeping on one side for a while. Does anyone else have ear issues? Like the outer ear, the cartalidge part, will actually be in pain when I wake up and lift my head off the pillow. It will ease after a few minutes of not laying on it. It's weird and bothersome!!

I get that sometimes if I sleep on something too hard.... yes it's very annoying! Is your pillow too firm? Or maybe your ear is just super sensitive right now.

I have a pregnancy body pillow that I am using to encourage side sleeping...though I often wake up in the middle of the night feeling like it is attacking me. LOL

I want to sleep on my back, but try not to. I try on my side, but that is just not cutting it. I found when I sleep sitting up, its much better. I have about 4 pillows in varying heights to make about 45* incline. But, yeah, not sleeping much at all!
