so sleeping on your right isnt cutting off the blood flow? i just recently read about that in a pregnancy magazine. I am so scared of losing my first child so I am trying to do everything in my will power to make sure I am doing everything right, my sister just lost her first 2 months ago and I am sooo stinking scared!

The whole sleeping on your left side is an old wives tale. Sleep however you are comfortable, as you get further along you'll want to avoid sleeping on your back and you won't be able to sleep on your stomach but for now you are safe to sleep however you want.

If your in pain to the point of wanting to cry it would be worth mentioning!

Have you been to the doctor to ask about your back pain? You may want to rule out infection
