Sleeping sitting up..

is that ok?  I woke up Christmas morning at like 4 am and was having a muscle spasm in my left side from always sleeping on my side.  So last night when I went to bed I propped myself up on my pillows so I was kind of sitting up but was on my back.  Is that ok?  I know you aren't supposed to sleep on your back but I figured it meant flat on your back.....anyone know if it's ok?


Oh and on a side note, my muscle spasm.........pretty much had me tears and in the midst of that I looked at DH and said "OMG, if I can't handle this, I"m never going to handle childbirth..." haha

Ok good, I can't handle sleeping on my side much longer.  It's killing me.  I get the worst hip pain.

That's fine. I had a 5ft long body pillow that I used to fold into a 'V' and sleep propped up - it was so comfortable?

Have you been to the doctor about your hip pain? It could be Symphysis pubis dysfunction, it's so painful, but you can get support belts and have physio that will ase the pain slightly. I suffered terribly with it :(

I dont think my hip pain is anything major, it just gets a little sore from sleeping on my side, almost like pressure point pain?

I've been getting the hip pain too. So much so that I had hip soreness in my dream recently!

do you sleep with a pillow between your legs?  i've always had hip trouble so i've been doing it for years, but i've had to upgrade to the noogle body pillow in my first trimester.  if you don't have one, i highly recommend it!
