Hey everybody, I was wondering was is o.k. to sleep/lay on your back..I read that sometimes it can put pressure on this and that and reduce the blood flow or something..I am 18 wks. and I was wondering b/c I feel so comfortable laying on my back.

I'm a RN. And in Nursing school we were told no pregnant woman should be on their back for an extended time d/t pressure of the baby on the superior vena cava causing decreased blood flow to the baby. BUT when i was pregnant with my last child my obgyn said it was old school and you would be feeling the effects first, be uncomfortable and change position automatically yourself before damage to the baby.
