Lay anyway that's comfortable. They say sleeping on your back is not good because it can cut off the blood supply or something. But I asked my doc about this and she said not to worry about that until around 20 wks. I'm 17 wks now and I still sleep on my tummy.

They say that sleeping on your left side is the very best. I always heard and read not to sleep on your back, but when I asked my doctor, he said that was a myth and that it only mattered if you were high risk.
