Why when i lay on my right side at 7.5 months does my baby kick more vs when i lay on my left side?
Baby uncomfotable?: This is just a guess, but it sounds like your baby is less comfortable when you lay on your right side, just as you might be less comfortable in certain positions. It is even possible that laying on your right side puts pressure on the umbilical cord reducing oxygen to your baby. This may well be your baby's effort to communicate with you, saying "hey, i don't like this, please move!". ...Read more

When i sleep on my left side i find i get really bad gas on my right side. When i turn, i can pass it. Why?
Easy answer!: Think of a glass of soda--fizz rises to the top, right? This happens with air in your gut. As you see from colon anatomy, there is a left (descending) & right (ascending) part of the colon. Turning onto your left side allows right colon to fill with air (the "bad gas" you're experiencing); turning onto your right side moves gas to left colon which permits easy passage of it thru the rectum nearby. ...Read more
