If you're pregnant with twins and you're experiencing sleeping problems, you're probably trying to figure out why your normal positions are so uncomfortable, and if there's a best way to sleep while pregnant with twins. While most pregnant women experience some discomfort in their normal sleeping positions, the problem is only exacerbated in twin pregnancies. If you are a stomach sleeper, you will have to retrain yourself, for obvious reasons, to sleep in a different position as your pregnancy develops.
Healthcare professionals refer to the sleeping position most likely to give you some relief from discomfort during a twin pregnancy as 'SOS', or sleep on side. Elevating your upper body with pillows can help alleviate breathing problems associated both with hormone changes during pregnancy and pressure from the uterus on the lungs.


Fortunately, experts do recommend some sleeping positions that should lessen your discomfort. It's recommended that you change your sleeping position as soon as possible, rather than wait for when it's necessary, so that you can get used to the new position before it's absolutely necessary. Sleeping on your side, with a pregnancy wedge-shaped cushion bearing the weight, reduces the burden on your body. If you sleep on your back, you'll probably be able to continue your normal sleeping position for longer, but as the fetuses develop, you will ultimately have to give up this position too, as it can lead to backaches, breathing problems, low blood pressure, and digestive problems because of the weight of the uterus on the digestive tract and major blood vessels. Sleeping on the left side can also help improve circulation and blood flow to all the other major organs and to the placenta(s).


Recent research also found that sleeping on your left side may reduce the risk of stillbirth.
