Ugh.. I never sleep on my back when I'm not pregnant but ever since we got a new bed (I think Jesus himself blessed it before tiny little angels sewed it together) I keep waking up on my back. I'm losing sleep because I have to keep waking myself up to roll over.

This is the point in pregnancy where we are supposed to stop sleeping on our backs and sleep on the left side as much as possible.

I actually have my husband on back duty, if he wakes up in the night and sees me on my back he's supposed to ask me to roll to my side. I'm not ready to get the giant, lumpy old pregnancy pillow out yet.

How have you all been sleeping?

Well it can be. The uterus can compress the vena cava. If memory serves correct, it is the main vein, or blood flow, to baby. I'm jealous that you can still comfortably sleep on your back. It's like my matress sucks me in and I get stuck there lol. I'm also pretty big already so that might be another factor. I find myself short of breath and my lungs actually hurt a little when I first wake up. Just another bonus of pregnancy!

Luckily I've never been a big back sleeper anyway. Only time I'm on my back is if I'm cuddling my DD. Otherwise side sleeping both sides! Prefer left side even! I honestly always worry I'll accidently roll on my belly 😞

Pillow in between the knees was the most effective way for me)
I've just got a v-shaped cozzy pillow. I absolutely love it and I'm pretty sure I'll even use it to sleep with after the baby is born because I find it so comfy to hug and stick between my legs in bed! Also I think it will be very useful for helping with breastfeeding. I couldn't be without it
