When I was 1-3 months along it was the most comfortable to sleep any way I could get a good night`s sleep (morning,noon,& night sickness)....but as the baby grows and the sac the baby lives in expands, I switched to one side or the other with a leg half-bent with a pillow under the bent leg to equalize the height with the rest of my growing`s not a good idea to put your full body weight on the growing fetus as it is "free-falling" in the amniotic fluid and stretches and flexes as it grows. The umbilical cord also needs the room to flow freely, as it is carrying nutrients and oxygen to the baby constantly....hope this helps My ob/gyn's advice is not to. In fact, after the 4th month she recommends sleeping on the left side or back with a bunch of pillows keeping you in a half-reclining position. The left side thing apparently has something to do with the way your baby gets its oxygen supply and the reclining position helps prevent heartburn/acid reflux. Good luck and good health to you all.
