Laying on my back!

I'm 25 weeks 4 days and I'm on strict bed rest. Was in the hosptial for 3 days and the nurses told me they dont want me sitting up straight. Will it put pressure on my baby girl if I lay on my back? When should I stop?

I rotate like every hour because I'm so uncomfortable.  I can't find a comfortable spot. My back kills me.

Laying on your left side is best. But on bed rest would roatate. Wouldn't lyrics straight on your back. It Cann cause a decrease in blood flow to the baby because of the baby laying on your abdominal aorta. As long as your slightly tilted your fine. Pillow under the hip works.
