This is what I have found works best. I always wake up finding myself on my back anyways bc that is how I normally sleep when not pregnant. It's just how I'm most comfortable. So to ease my nagging mind about it not being "safe" to sleep completely on my back (although I know many pregnant Mamas who do and their babies are fine) I just put a pillow under one hip and my back a little bit so I'm sort of tilted.

I slept on my back my whole pregnancy at least part of the night. I liked that I could feel her move better that way, and it was easier on my hips.

Re: Any other back sleepers?

I am 23 weeks and the only way I can sleep comfortably is on my back. Sometimes DH will wake me in the middle of the night b/c I am on my back and he'll tell me to turn over. I try to prop up with pillows but that makes it worse. I am going to just continue to do it until it becomes uncomfortable.
