    Does anyone wake up in the night find you've been sleeping on your back when you started off on your side?

    Does anyone else still sleep this way even though we shouldn't!?

    find myself sleeping there all the time.. i just turn over... n go bk to sleep.. babys still kicking so must be ok..cant help what you do in your sleep..if you prop yourself up on loads of pillows you can sleep on your back.. as long as your not flat for ages.. when they monitor you.. u have to lay on your back for an hourish usually.. so im sure its fine

    I was thinking exactly the same thing this morning.. I went to sleep on my side (can't on my back cos of the heartburn), but woke up on my back with little miss trying to push her way out with her feet in my ribs and terrible heart burn... How does it happen???? :think:

    it squashes ur vena cava artery which takes blood back up to your heart so if you stand up straight after being on your back it can make u go dizzy/sick.

    i never go onto my back now cos once im there its impossible to get back up again or turn over lol

    kim.. u made me laugh at your mistake.. sorry for the piss take. but as ive done human biology A level u just made me lol.. :rotfl: sorry

    vena cavas a vain.. and arterys move blood away from the heart not to it.. but you are right.. the weight of the bump can.. a very big can.. put pressure on the main vein and artery that run down the middle of our bodys.. i dont really think its that dangerous.. our bodys should know when to turn over if its gettign squashed..so dont stress to much about it.. u cant help what you do in your sleep... but i agree.. when ur sleeping on your back feels like your pelvis is stuck to the bed.. and you cant turn over...

    I asked my MW about this and it's fine - if "mother nature" turns you over in your sleep onto your back and your blood pressure starts to drop or whatever happens when you lie on your back, "mother nature" will turn you back.
