Im in the same position im 32 weeks pregnant and cant get comfy whats so ever i always wabt to try and sleep on my back but been told not allowed to do that i tryed putting a pillow under my belly and inbetween my legs works sometimes but not always sorry if ive not been much help x
try to sleep in a recliner if you have one. or i was told to try one of those back pillows with the arms on either side
No its not too early for a pregnancy pillow... if you get it early youll get the most use outta it... because your still early in your pregnancy its not as big of a deal to be sleeping on your left but it is a good habbit to get into... i started teaching myself early too... but by 5 months on i didnt sleep i hurt all night!! so whatever you can get to be comfy i reccomend it!! This pregnancy im gonna find a good pillow!! lol
Thanks guys!!!! My mom said she was planning on getting me one for Christmas so she said she'll just give it to me early, yay! me! Maybe I'll get good sleep!!!
I've heard that its okay to sleep on both your right and left side -- the issue seems to be more of not sleeping on your back, and unless you are having pelvic/hip/back pain you can sleep in any position you like up to the 16 week mark. I find I have to alternate sides a few times during the night otherwise I wake up from muscular pains. I do have a body pillow and find it really helps with ligament pain, etc. I think the brand of pillow I got is Obus Forme. My husband (who is awesome!) picked it up for me and he now loves when I sleep with it because he can also cuddle up to it. Its super comfy!
