i always wake up on my back!

I am 30 weeks pregnant so I'm getting pretty close now and obviously its starting to find a comfy sleep position is getting difficult,I read somewhere that sleeping on your back can cut off air supply to the baby so every night I make sure I fall asleep on my side but every morning I wake up on my back and I can't do anything about it? Does anyone know if it really can harm the baby cause ill sleep on our chair if that's the case? Lol

The same thing happens to me everynight! Lol I am 32+6 and usually my little man starts kicking like crazy after I wake up and I'm on my back! I have asked my ob and he said as long as I'm comfy then the baby is fine! So I'm not sure if it harms them or not!

I was told sleepin on ur back is bad coz weight of urterus on ur spine and it cuts blood flow and oxgyen to the baby, am worried aboot this too because I sleep on my back! It cant kill ur baby so dont worry aboot tht its just kinda bad

Yes it can be harmful, its not a absolutle no no, but its not the best, I did it too so now I just put 2 pillows on either side of me, and that way when om on my side and I roll to my back in my sleep I'm tilted, you don't have to be completely on your side, its actually best to just sleep where your uterus it tilted slightly to keep baby off your aorta. Hope this helps! It's helped me tons! But its comfortable for me so I enjoy it.
