To the left, to the left

5 WEEKS, 2 DAYS PREGNANT
I’ve never had one specific sleeping position. I rotate like a chicken in a rotisserie, from my left side to my back, to my right side, to my stomach.
But now, it’s all about the left! According to the wise and powerful internet, pregnant peeps should sleep on their left side.
Here’s why:
  • It improves circulation to your heart and kidneys
  • It allows for the best blood flow to the baby
  • It helps keep the baby’s weight off your liver
I’ve tried it for the last few nights, and it’s not so bad. They also suggest putting a pillow between your legs, which I haven’t tried yet.
I kind of want one of those pregnancy pillows. But I’m not sure if I want one because they look cool, or if I really need one?

So what do you think?
