@lovelyrose:  you will know when you can’t. Your body will tell you. You have a few more months on your back and stomach!

I’m just over 32 weeks and on my back (propped a little bit) is the only way I can fall asleep.  The only time limbs fall asleep is when I sleep on my sides, so back sleeping has been wonderful for me.  My Dr said there’s nothing wrong with it, if my body senses something is wrong, it will naturally move to avoid a dangerous situation.

Update: I am just now (almost 29 weeks) getting to the point where back sleeping feels weird, though I anticipate if I prop myself more with pillows it’ll be comfortable again. I’m bummed, because side-sleeping gives me burning in my hips after a while and makes my arms fall asleep. Sad face.

My doula told me last night that there is no truth to the idea that laying on your back is dangeorus at ANY stage in pregnancy–she said to reduce third trimester swelling I should lay flat back on the floor and prop my feet on the wall. So I think it should be fine for sleep!
