Just wish I could get comfortable at night

Only 10 weeks left until I meet Annabella Luna
I'm a FTM  pregnant with a little girl and
I'm so excited to be at 30 weeks today!
Although being pregnant is not my cup of tea
I love feeling my princess move She is a very active little one Especialy when I'm trying to sleep
I have never been a fan of sleeping on my back but she tends to kick and skirm more If I try to sleep on my side
That being said I wake up sore my back is sore if I slept on it all night or as well as my sides and sometimes even my belly feels sore
Anyone els having this problem? What can I do to get comfortable?

You can get maternity pillows which are a god send! Or alternatively put a pillow between your legs and behind your back or sides depending on what's comfier c:

I got a foam mattress topper and extra pillows, both help a lot. Although I still have to flip from one side to another multiple times throughout the night. I just looooove how everyone tells you to sleep while you can before the baby comes - easier said than done!!

I sleep with 4 pillows behind my head (bad heartburn) a body pillow that wraps from my side to inbetween my legs and a pillow on my hip that I sleep on. This is the most comfortable way for me to sleep. There is never too many pillows to sleep with when your pregnant I feel like. Lol

Sleeping at night is becoming unbearable turning from side to side is torture. I use a pillow between my legs but even that doesn't help 8 weeks left.

I'm almost 33 weeks pregnant with a baby girl and I'm naming her Stella Luna ☺️ it's so painful no matter what. I wake up multiple times a night to go pee and when I do, ohmygod my pelvis hurts so bad lol

We had a pillow top mattress with my first pregnancy and it became too painful to sleep on it. I woke up with extreme hip pain and started sleeping on the couch at 12 weeks. To my surprise i slept with no interruptions! This time around I have a firmer mattress so I haven't had any problems

If you're on your back put a pillow under your knees which will ease your lower back. Also keep your head elevated to help blood flow. If you're on your side, put a pillow between your knees. I got this info at yoga and it does help. However, I find it hard to be comfortable any position for too long at the moment. I'm a bulky 33 weeks so my belly just gets in the way every way! I read somewhere that the constant waking is to prepare us for when baby arrives and needs to be fed very 2 hours!

I hope things go supper well for both of you
I know your a few weeks ahead of us
I would love if you can keep me posted on things with your princess but understand life happens and can sometimes get hectic especially being pregnant  
Regardless I will be sending good thoughts your way

Thank you so much for your advice ladies in so sorry it took me so long to answer I have been moving
But I have added a few pillows to my bed set and that has helped although I'm still waking up more than a few times at night the pain and comfort level has improved
Hope everyone is resting well and feeling wonderful

Ok I know this is random but it's so crazy you picked that name combination. I too am having a girl and her name is going to be Luna. I also have my first little girl (aka my dog) who's name is Annabelle. So I will have my puppy daughter Annabelle and my daughter Luna due October 19th. As far as the comfortability issue it's going to be hard no matter what. I however find it useful to have my maternity pillow along my back and under head then another pillow under head. In the front I use a blanket and stuff it under my belly and between legs. (Normally my maternity pillow goes between legs but I've been using it to prop feet up with another pillow for swelling)

It also helps I just bought a new memory foam mattress (forgot to mention that part)
