just wondering.. I had a horrible night of sleep last night, it just hurts sooo bad to roll over in bed, and when I use my legs to lift my butt to flip, I get charley horses and or my pubic bones click... I'm falling apart! so I tried sleeping in the recliner ( I hate to sleep on my back but it feels better when I'm pregnant and awake). My question is this, how far back can I lay before it's not safe. You know how they say not to lay on your back b/c the baby puts pressure on the artery? or something...Looks like I may become friends w/ this chair if it helps and I don't want to put the baby at risk or anything.

I would just say whatever is comfortable for you....if you're laying too far back you'll probably have trouble getting a good breath anyway so I'm sure your body will tell you. Hope you sleep well tonight I know all too well how it is to not sleep well when pregnant!Very blessed SAHM to:

I asked my doctor about sleeping positions.......... He told me that whatever is comfortable, thats what I should be doing. He said that for some people with fetal perfusion problems it is recommended to sleep on the left side, but for everybody else......... do what we want..... Back, right side, left side....... whatever......... Hope you and that chair become good friends...... Im just not finding anything comfortable these days!Gina

that's good.. that makes me feel better. I guess I'm really concerned b/c when I had my son I had a true knot in the cord and everytime I had a contraction his heartrate would go down, but it was much better if I was on my left side. And they say not to sleep on your back after 20 weeks. But I wonder how true that really is.

I would say that if you can find a comfortable position at this point then sleep that way. LOL I'm jealous you have a recliner!Kathy & DP Linda DS Zachary 15 yrs old DD Sterling 3/29/06

I was told that I can sleep in mine...and I do for at least part of the night most nights anymore. I have severe back problems and have a lot of trouble getting comfortable ever. It works for me!IVF/ICSI #1 Chance Ian:4-5-06
Our little miracle:
Each day as I watch you struggle I am reminded to find joy in the little things, to stop and smell the flowers, and that some things are more important than material things. Your smile melts my heart, and takes the chronic pain away, if only for a fleeting moment. Thank you for the joy that you bring, my son.
