Can sleeping on ur back in pregnancy hurt the baby? What's the big deal about sleeping on my back ? Can sleeping on back cause the baby heart to stop?
I vote "It's a myth": Normal pregnant women, or any woman, may sleep in whichever position she finds comfortable. Getting a good night's sleep is important, regardless of whether one is pregnant or not. All over the internet, people post "advice" (but without "proof") about pregnancy sleep positions, but one can read about some actual research results at: http://www.jogc.com/abstracts/full/200710_Commentary_1.pdf ...Read more
I sleep on my back all the time.Any other pose makes me uncomfortable. Is it good or bad sleeping on back?Which sleeping pose you advice?
Most comfortable: There is no "best" position for sleeping. But if you have snoring or sleep apnea, it will probably be worse when you are sleeping on your back. People with neck pain may have trouble when they sleep on their stomachs. The best position for people with lower back pain is to sleep on their backs with a pilliw under their knees. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Other than a pacifier, sleeping on back, a fan, and not over clothing, what can I do to prevent sids? I constantly worry.
Dont worry: Easy to say...Difficult to do. If you are following the recommendations of "back to sleep" and the other measures you mention, all is well. Worrying just makes you a wreck. If there is no family history of sids and you don't smoke, odds are very very small sids will occur. I would have a discussion with you in the office over why you worry so we can help ally your anxiety. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My wife is pregnant and her fingers keep falling asleep. What is a good remedy to help her get sensation back?
I'm 13 weeks pregnant. I fell asleep on my iPhone last night and now my back is a little red. Should I be worried? Don't know how it happened! FTM.
Low level radiation: The redness is likely due to the very low levels of radiation that the cellphone signal emitted that was trapped against your back. It should not affect your pregnancy, but cell phones should be placed on a nightstand at night and not a pillow or gown pocket. If the redness continues past 24 hours notify your treating OB MD. ...Read more

Delayed sleep: You seem to be sleeping enough, but at the wrong time. You need to restrict your sleep, so you can sleep at night. Try not to sleep after 12 noon, use any tool you can to stay awake, then try to sleep closer to midnight. It is very hard to sleep after 2 am. If you snore, you need to be checked for sleep apnea. ...Read more
