    Hi Cathy,

    Normally sleeping sidewards to ur left is advised, since it improves blood ciculation for u and ur growing baby...other than this , u can also sleep to ur right side, but try to minimize sleeping straight... Have a happy pregnancy...

    Hi Cathy

    Its good to sleep in sides rather than on ur back to have a good blood circulation.
    Sitting is not a problem but as months progresses, since ur belly grows, its advised to sit straight to avoid backaches.
    I usually used recliners to sit so that i avoided sitting in bed in day time to avoid back pain and also heat generated while we sit on bed.

    I suffered a lot due to excess body heat, even now in winter i use fan during night :)

    Always dont worry abt whether it might affect the baby.. the baby is well cushioned and protected in uterus surrounded by fluid,so the baby is safe even if u bed down, walk, sit or sleep. But always be careful in whatever u do.

    Take care and enjoy ur pregnancy :)
