Hi. I know the best advice for safe sleeping in pregnancy is sleeping on left side but I often find no matter how many pillows I use as props etc it really hurts my hips. Can anyone tell me if the recovery postion is safe? I find this is how I end up most nights but have an anxiety all of a sudden at 20 weeks I may harm baby? Many thanks

I have a big U shaped pillow that stops me rolling by effectively keeping me in the recovery position.

I normally sleep on the front but the pillow helps me almost sleep on the front but not quite. I also sleep with the lower part between my knees/thighs, that really helps with the hip pain.

I'm sure you can sleep OK on your back till the 3rd trimester though, that's 28 weeks.
