This happens to me too. I thought I was okay to lie on my back until 20 weeks though. I also wake up on my back and have to jump up and walk around to catch my breath.

Yeah, I'm finding myself being more active around the house to fight that feeling! It feels like it helps a lot to just get up and move around right after, whether sleeping at night or just home relaxing (which is more often because I'm out of job lol)

I’m 23 weeks and still lay on my back. I just roll over when it gets uncomfortable. Your body will tell you if there’s something wrong and when you shouldn’t be on your back anymore.

I've had to get up and walk around a lot because I feel like I just can't get enough air laying down. My lungs feel like they're not expanding full amount.

Nothing else amiss at least. Weird.

Thoughts? I have appointment a week from tuesday, so can bring up then. Ultrasound this thursday too. I feel the baby wiggle, so that's assuring. Is the baby really already impacting me laying down?
Stick a pillow under your right hip just enough to tilt you off that main vena cava. You feel breathless as blood isn't flowing properly so you're not getting the oxygen around your system that you need !xx I'm the same already too ! It's an absolute pain xx
