During pregnancy you may find yourself wrestling in bed trying to get comfortable before falling asleep. There are a number of reasons for this new discomfort, but there are some sleeping positions that you can try that may help you get your much needed rest. In late pregnancy you may experience shortness of breath.  Try lying on your side or propped up with pillows. These suggestions may not sound completely comfortable, especially if you are used to sleeping on your back or stomach, but try them out.  You may find that they work.
Sleeping on your back: This can cause problems with backaches, breathing, the digestive system, hemorrhoids, low blood pressure and cause a decrease in circulation to your heart and your baby.
Sleeping on your stomach: When you are farther along in your pregnancy, your abdomen undergoes physical changes and makes it more difficult for you to lay on your stomach.

If you have trouble sleeping then prop a pillow under your tummy for support while you rest. Unfortunately, your regular sleeping positions may no longer work for you during pregnancy. Sleeping on your left side will increase the amount of blood and nutrients that reach the placenta and your baby. Some of the other reasons that you may not be able to sleep are lack of exercise, too much exertion or fatigue.


Sleeping on the left side is more comfortable for some reason though there is no evidence to prove that it is more beneficial to sleeping on your right side.
With your growing baby bump you find it difficult to sleep on your back while it is not recommended to sleep on your stomach from the very day that you get pregnant.
