Post subject: Should I stop lying on my back?
Hi, I'm new here. I am in the 23rd week of my first pregnancy and it has become increasingly uncomfotable to sleep in bed. I am trying not to lye on my back as I know that it puts pressure on my blood vessels, but I keep waking up in the night, lying on my back. Is it dangerous for the baby if I do lye on my back? I have ordered a wedge pillow so I am sure that will help. TIA

its not danerous for the baby as such
although its not recommended for you as baby gets bigger.
your body wont let you sleep in a position thats uncomfortable or in a position which it doesnt liek and thats why its waking you up! how clever is that!
so i wouldnt worry too much. a wedge pillow is fab though
you'll sleep great with it
