This is driving me nuts! My ribs hurt far too much to sleep on either side. Clearly I can't sleep on my belly, though I'm tempted to try sleeping on my belly on this beanbag thing I have. So, I've had to sleep on my back (it doesn't make me dizzy or breathless, so I haven't been too concerned about health...BUT, I'm sure it's contributing to this baby being posterior).

What's a girl to do?!

I've started sleeping nearly sitting up. I can only stay on my side for so long and then my belly/guts start to ache and wakes me up. Keeping a pillow propped under it doesn't work any more.

The only pain I have is in my hip. It used to be the heartburn, but the 2x a day meds have trumped that. But now, no matter how soft or hard I make my sleep number bed, I have really awesome hip pain on my right side

Thanks *Kiliki* for my amazingly perfect siggy!
