I keep waking up on my back!!

So every night I keep waking up and I'm laying on my back. I'm 30 weeks now. My belly isn't too heavy so my body doesn't adjust to either side and I think my body wants to lay on my back because it's the most comfortable position.

I'm worried that this is bad for the fetus. Anyone else struggle with this?

Re: I keep waking up on my back!!

I wouldn't worry about it if you look into the research on it, there isn't a lot. That's because it's a pretty slim chance of anything bad happening, and not a well documented problem. The worry is that the baby will lay on and close off blood supply, but this has basically never been proven to happen. When you wake up on your back, just roll to your side or even front and don't feel bad about it!

This happened to me all the time in all four pregnancies. I don't think there's much real risk to it. Plus... there's really nothing you can do about it! As the other ladies have said - I wouldn't worry about it.
