Sleeping comfortably whilst pregnant
I'm now a little over 20 weeks pregnant and I am finding it more difficult to get comfortable whilst sleeping. Before I was pregnant I would naturally fall asleep on my back but the advice (from my midwife) is that I should now be sleeping on my left hand side (this will help to get the baby in a good position for the labour).
I've tried surrounding myself with pillows but these tend to move during the night and then I wake up feeling uncomfortable. I'm keen to be getting good sleep as I am aware of research which shows that the average labour time is longer for women who are not having enough sleep.
How did you sleep when you were pregnant? Do you have any tips? Also, has anyone tried a Holo Lilo as this looks like a good way to sleep on your front.
