I was advised by my dr not to sleep on my back. However, sometimes i wake up on my back and notice that my legs are asleep or tingly. The uterus pushes on the artery that supplies blood to the lower portion of your body. Not the greatest for you or baby. What i do is tuck a pillow under my back on one side and then lay over on it. This way i'm not TOTALLY on my back... but more on my back then my side. This is comfortable to me and keep that artery from being compressed. I was told by dr if i woke up on my back to just move to a different position. At some point you'll get to a point where it will be WAY too uncomfortable to sleep on your back regardless if you want to or not. I tried the other day and could not catch my breath. Your body will tell you.
