Hello,
I have just started gaining weight and getting bigger when I was smaller I was able to sleep on the left with no issues. Now I am finding myself able to fall asleep on the left side but I wake u on my back or stomach. How can I prevent this from happening? I do not have the money to get a body pillow. So please help me I am scared I am going to harm the baby if I do not sleep the right way. Thank you. This is my first child.

Lucy thank you for that. I did some pillows last night and slept on the other side of the bed to see how that went. I sleep very well.

I'm no expert but i doubt that you could harm the baby by finding yourself on your back later in the night. I believe that the body has a way of making itself comfortable as you sleep and that is why you cannot sleep on the left side for the entire night. I'd say, try to use ordinary pillows and cushions that are already in your home to make yourself comfortable when you retire for the night then let nature take its course. I have never used a body pillow in my past two pregnancies and am very comfortable using one of my cushions in this third pregnancy. Good luck and enjoy your pregnancy
