Answer: Hello dr... Congratulations on your pregnancy. Yes your friend is right. You should sleep on your left It would be better because in this position blood and nutrients from your body easily reach the child through the placenta. Keep a pillow between your legs or just bend your knees. Also lying on back is realy not god for any pregnant women because the uterus will grow with time and the weight of it may put immense pressure on the veins and muscles. If you dont sleep on side then start making a habit to do so.

Question: I am always feeling like to sleep on my back and right side but people are saying to sleep on left side how far it's true that u have to sleep max on left side
Answer: If you sleep on your back you for long times then you may feel dizziness and back pain due to baby's weight. Also, it will cause pressure on vena cava thus, reducing oxygen supply to baby. Better to sleep on left side mostly as it helps in digestion and also gives space to baby for movement.
