Sleeping on your right side while pregnant

Are you used to sleeping on your right side? Now that you're pregnant, you'll have to think about turning to your left side. Here's why!

The reason is mainly anatomical: the vena cava, which runs along the right side of the uterus, can be compressed if you sleep on your right side. This position will become unpleasant especially around the 6th or 7th month of pregnancy. It causes a feeling of suffocation or discomfort: listen to your body, which will help you find the right position. Use pillows to find the most comfortable position!

What is the safest position to sleep in while pregnant?! I'm looking on Google and it says either Your Right Side or Left Side try to avoid sleeping on your back as it can cause stillbirth, etc.. in the long run!

Has anyone else experienced chest pains only when laying on your left side? Ive been sleeping on my right side the last few days cause its the only way I get relief from the chest pains at night. Im assuming its a circulation issue or something, but not sure?

my left side is now getting so uncomfortable to sleep on so i turn on my right side but not much because i have anxiety of sleeping on my right side because i read the right side is not really the best because it doesn’t really give the baby enough blood flow like the left side so someone please tell me is it safe to sleep on your right side at 30 weeks

I have insomnia, and it's worse since im pregnant especially in my last week's. I can barely get any sleep cause I get so uncomfortable sleeping on my left side only. I toss and turn and shift to the right side to easy up on left then go back cause I know the right sides not good to sleep on. I wanna know if anyone has any tips or tricks I don't know about cause I've had enough just about to try sleeping sitting up in a chair from now on but I don't know if that's okay to do.

So …not long ago I was involved in a drive by shooting while driving my car and my left arm got very damaged and stays in pain a lot. I read everywhere that I should be sleeping on my left side but of course I can’t. 😩 So sleeping on my right side is my go to although nothing is comfortable for me right now with injury and the pregnancy but I’m grateful for life itself. I wonder all the time how is this right side sleeping affecting baby🤔🫤 #IDontKnow #Sleeping

Currently 13 weeks. I’m so uncomfortable sleeping on my left side. The only way I feel comfortable is my right. I am stressing out.
