I'd like to know as well although I'm pretty sure that I read it doesn't really matter as long as you're comfortable. Most of the time the right side is more comfortable for me as well. It could also be that was my preferred sleeping side before I got pregnant.
But I'd be curious as to what everyone else says, so thanks for the thread! :P
Same for me. I find that sleeping on the right is much more comfy then the left, i always heard that laying on your left is good for your baby, but i don't actually know if it's a bad thing laying on your right, but would love to know what other people think, so thanks for the thread
I agree that lying on your right is more comfortable than your left. But, apparently being on your left aides blood/oxygen flow to the placenta so therefore is supposed to be better for baby. I think it also best for you as it keeps the weight of your uterus off your liver and vena cava (main vein which carries blood from feet back to the heart) which are on your right side.
I tend to sleep on my left side, just as its comfortable.... well as comfortable as i can get these days...
Ive read in a couple of places that left side is best for baby, but when i mentioned to MW she said either side was fine, just whatever was most comfortable for you and just to try avoid lying on your back
I asked MW this exact question on Tue as i got told when preg with DD to ONLY sleep on my left but i never got told why. Well anyways this MW said it doesnt matter however you sleep (left, right, back) but just to avoid sleeping on your tummy (like most of us could anyways )
She also said that if you DO sleep on your back or right side then just make sure you get up slowly as it can make you feel dizzy (something about baby being on a nerve) but it wont do you ir bubs any harm! x
