Post subject: correct sleeping position
i'm in my first trimester (11 weeks). Someone told me that i shouldn't sleep on my back or belly. It will affect the baby. Is this true?

Post subject: Sleeping position
I have read in many books that its best to lie on left hand side. As you get bigger put a pillow between your legs. I try yo sleep on side but occasionally end up on back I dont think it will harm at moment more to do with comfort. (sorry didnt say why left hand side) Hope this helps
sleep well xx

hi with both my girls i slept on either side. didnt sleep on my back as it was uncomfy, same as the front. i wouldnt worry about the pillow between ur legs unless u find it comfortable urself. towards the end every position will be hard to sleep in. i found a pillow under my bump useful.

i dont think it matters where you sleep at the moment, and oull find as you get bigger anyway you wont be able to sleep on your tummy and itll hurt to sleep on your back - so your only option will e the side!! and yes the midwife also told me to sleep on the left hand side, not sure why either though!!

If you have any worries, just ask the doc or midwife! Smile

its to do with the blood being able to circulate better. my midwife said it wouldnt matter if i slept on my right, as during certain positions the baby was in left side was uncomfy.
