Why can’t I sleep on my right side while pregnant?

Sleeping on your side is generally recommended during pregnancy, especially on your left side. This is because sleeping on your left side can improve blood flow to the placenta and help your baby receive essential nutrients and oxygen. It can also help relieve pressure on your back, reduce swelling in your legs, and promote better digestion. While sleeping on your right side is generally considered safe during pregnancy, it may not be as beneficial as sleeping on your left side. This is because the weight of your growing uterus can put pressure on the large blood vessels that run along your spine when you sleep on your right side. This can potentially reduce blood flow to your baby and cause discomfort for you. However, if you find it more comfortable to sleep on your right side, you can discuss it with your healthcare provider to ensure it is safe for you and your baby.
