What is the most comfortable sleep position for you right now? Has this always been your preferred position?

On my side. I'm usually a belly sleeper so it has taken some getting used to. I'm not looking forward to the last trimester when it starts hurting my hips to lay on my side and I end up tossing from side to side all night long.

I've always been a back sleeper and I still am. I know it's supposedly bad but it's the only way I get any sleep.

Your body will let you know to turn its amazing that way

I'm a side sleeper always have been. And I have been turning side to side every night lately.

I was a side sleeper before pregnancy, but now sleeping on my side sometimes hurts my ribs because I am sleeping on 3 pillows to help prevent heartburn... and it makes my side bend a little too much. I like sleeping a little flatter! Now, I am finding that I wake up in the night on my back, which I try not to do as much as possible, but it seems the most comfortable at this point!

I loved laying on my stomach. That is unworkable now I tend to lay on my left side. When I do this Ellianna kicks often which is reassuring. However, I prefer the back or right. For some reason I do not feel kicks when I am on the right side.

I have always been a stomach sleeper. But I'm now at a point where that isn't working anymore. I sleep on my side mostly now, but my hips hurt so bad already, so I'm tossing and turning from one side to the other all night. I am so thankful for my snoogle pillow! It is giving me support I need for my back when I'm on my side, which also hurts pretty bad, so that helps some. I'm not sure how I'm going to sleep once I get bigger and more uncomfortable because it's already pretty hard now!

Always side and mostly right, now though I've been flipping way more often to stay semi-comfortable

I have always been a side sleeper, which is how I have continued to sleep now. However, my hip seems to go numb every now and then so I toss and turn alot :/

On my side, slightly propped up, on the couch. It's about the ONLY way I can actually sleep lately, and there's still a LONG way to go =\

Left side or partial back/partial left side. The baby on my right side refuses to let me sleep on my right side anymore! I am usually a back or stomach sleeper but neither are an option anymore if I try to lay straight on my back for too long I cannot breathe

I've always been a side sleeper. I'm not having too much trouble yet, but some nights I do have to keep a pillow between my knees. Makes rolling over a pain, but it helps.

I'm a stomach and side sleeper. I only recently stopped sleeping on my stomach and sometimes still lean a little more on my stomach than I feel is okay. I sleep best on my left side, but after a few hours, my left hip hurts like crazy. The problem is, as soon as I roll onto my right hip (literally the second it hits the mattress), it starts going numb and becomes quite painful even before I can fall asleep. My right hip has been going numb occasionally even when I'm laying on my left side. It's very strange. Several times a night I have to lay on my back long enough for my left hip to stop hurting or get up and walk around a bit, then lay down and hope that I get a few more hours.

I am normally a stomach sleeper. Now I sleep on my left side, half on my belly, with my right leg bent. I do switch sides throughout the night, though.

I'm typically a side and back sleeper. My back hurts when laying on back for too long. Sometimes I will lay on my back but wedge a pillow under one side just to barely tilt my body. That's pretty comfortable. Then sometimes I lay on one side and straighten the leg that I'm Laying on then bend the opposite knee up. I feel like I put too much pressure on my belly that way but figured my body would tell me if I was.
