Is it safe to lay on my back during the third trimester of pregnanct?

Is it safe to lay on my back during the third trimester of pregnanct?

Slight tilt better: There's a large vein (vena cava) that returns blood to your heart that runs up on the right side near your spine. It's possible to compress this with your uterus & that's why you may feel light-headed, dizzy, or with palpitations when you lay on your back. Simply a slight tilt towards your left can avoid vena-caval compression & you'll feel better. If no symptoms, I wouldn't worry about it.
