Left side is best for circulation to the baby . Either side is fine. Wouldn't recommend sleeping on your stomach or back. Use pillows to prop yourself up.

My left side hurts but I was told it is best. I sleep on both sides and even my stomach if it doesn't hurt. I'm 33 weeks

I'm 9 weeks and like u I sleep on my stomach I've been trying to sleep on my side but having a hard time staying on either side I recommend getting a body pillow to help that's what I had to do

Sleeping on your stomach is fine til it becomes uncomfortable. Sleeping on your back is fine til about 20 weeks. After that, sleeping on your sides is recommended.
