Sleeping on your back
The pros: This position is great for balancing out your body weight and keeping your internal organs aligned. Just be sure to keep a pillow under your knees to help maintain proper alignment of your back.

Sleeping on your side
The pros: Lying on your side in the fetal position with your knees bent and a pillow between your legs is said to take stress off your back. What's important is that you use a pillow that will keep your head in a neutral position so that your head won't drop and affect your posture. And did you know that sleeping on your left side reduces heartburn pain and is best when you're pregnant since it increases blood and nutrient flow to your baby?This position follows the natural curvature of the spine.


Sleeping on your stomach
Sleeping on your stomach is a BIG NO-NO . Sleeping on your stomach flattens the natural curve in the lower back and keeps your head turned to one side all night, which distorts the alignment of the spine in your neck. This position can also exert unnecessary pressure on your nerves which will cause pins and needles when you wake up.
