So moment of truth.... Myth or no myth... Sleeping or laying on your back when your pregnant is it really a huge deal? Please explain....

I slept on my tummy whole pregnancy. At first I was worried but found out around 3 months that as long as your comfortable, lay however you want! It's said that laying on your left side(I think) is best but if you want to lay on your back or stomach or even on your head! It is all fine!

It's what you are comfortable with. I was told to stay off my back because there is a vein that runs down your back to the baby that supplies air and if you lie on it can limit the baby's air supply. I never tried it I mostly sleep on my right .. Until ur about 7 months den just trying to sleep is a mystery because no position is comfortable 😊
