16 weeks pregnant mother

Question: Is it compulsion to sleep on left side.?

Question
Answer: In the early part of second trimester that you are in uterus and baby size is small, so you can rest in any position now. As pregnancy advances the uterus expand with the growing pregnancy. Lying down straight can put pressure on the blood vessels of the abdomen and reduce the blood supply to uterus and the baby. So in the third trimester it is advisable that you always lie on the sides preferably in the left lateral position to ensure adequate blood flow to your growing baby. Hope this information is useful to you.
Answer: Hello dear. It would not be a compulsion, you can sleep in which ever position you are comfortable with. However, the best sleep position during pregnancy is “SOS” (sleep on side). Even better is to sleep on your left side. Sleeping on your left side will increase the amount of blood and nutrients that reach the placenta and your baby. Keep your legs and knees bent, and put a pillow between your legs. Take care.
