I try to sleep on my back but find it really uncomfy anyone else sleep on there side?

    I lie on both my sides, its the only way I can get comfy, I use to sleep on my stomach but thats really uncomfortable now.
    They say (when your further along) to only sleep on your left side but thats only when ur heavily pregnant.
    I can't just sleep on my left side, it hurts after a while.

    sleeping on your left gives optimum blood flow and also helps reduce chances of piles and swollen ankles etc. After 16 weeks you should try not to sleep on your back because of the weight :)
    getting comfy is hard though, Im usually a tummy sleeper and have difficulty sleeping.. but have been finding it more comfortable on my left lately x

    I made the most of sleeping on my tummy until it got too uncomfortable (9 weeks), and now I'm making the most of sleeping on my back as I know that I won't be able to do that for much longer!
