How are you sleeping....position wise?

I'm a big belly sleeper and sometimes side. I'm still sleeping on my belly a lot, although it feels like there's a small pillow stuffed underneath me now at 16 weeks plus. I'll honestly sleep anyway I can stay asleep. What do you find is the best way to get a good nights rest?

I'm a back sleeper and I HATE sleeping on my side. I feel like it kills my hips. I also feel like my legs fall asleep when I sleep this way. If I'm this uncomfortable now I really worry what the end of pg will be like!

I'm pretty much sleeping the same way. I might start out on my side, but I toss and turn so much that I usually end up on my stomach during the night. Just wish I could find one comfortable position and stay in it right now. The last few nights I haven't been able to get comfortable at all.

Try putting a pillow in between your knees. It should help with the hip alignment and also keep you from squeezing your knees together during the night causing them to fall asleep.

I am a back sleeper, when I sleep on myside I end up on my stomach. I started putting a pillow between my knees but because I wake up five times to use the bathroom..yes yes I count... the pillow ends up on the floor.

I will def try the pillow between the knees. I ended up on the couch last night at about 2:30 well this morning. Like you guys said it's a lot of tossing and turning. Yes, then throw in the bathroom breaks, geeze. Wishing you all a good nights sleep!

I usually fall asleep on my stomach, end up on my side throughout the night and usually wake up on my back. I'll be sad when my bump really gets in the way of stomach sleeping, but I can usually fall asleep on my side as well.

I flip flop like a fish all night... No specific position seems to work any more. Ever since I got pg I cannot get comfortable to save my life.

I'm still sleeping on my tummy as well. I will also sleep on my back and sides. I toss around a lot a night.

I'm still able to sleep in a half-tummy/half-side position with a pillow under my head and another along my side to put my knee up onto. Unfortunately I wake up constantly to turn over or to pee and my arms are falling asleep a lot. I really just haven't been able to get comfortable lately and my hips are absolutely ACHING every morning!
