I'm 30 weeks pregnant (my first) and have read in books that you shouldn't sleep on your back in the third trimester (which I find most comfortable) so I've been trying to sleep on my side with a pillow under my belly and between my legs. But after a few hours of lying like this I get really sore hips so have to move - normally on to my back.
What's with the sore hips? My midwife said it's just pressure from the extra weight - but what can I do to get a decent sleep?
Also I've had a continuous pain in my ribs for about the last week - the only time I don't feel it is when I'm standing or walking but as my job is mostly sitting I'm finding it difficult to get comfortable in my chair? Is it just where the baby is lying at the moment and when I'm sitting it's squashing everything up?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
