What To Avoid

http://www.americanpregnancy.org says the following positions should be avoided:

Sleeping on your back

This can cause problems with backaches, breathing, digestive system, haemorrhoids, low blood pressure and decrease in circulation to your heart and your baby. This is a result of your abdomen resting on your intestines and major blood vessels (the aorta and vena cava).

Sleeping on your stomach

When you are farther along in your pregnancy, your abdomen undergoes physical changes and makes it more difficult for you to lay on your stomach.

The best sleep position during pregnancy is "SOS" (sleep on side). Even better is to sleep on your left side. Sleeping on your left side will increase the amount of blood and nutrients that reach the placenta and your baby. Keep your legs and knees bent and a pillow between your legs.

The right type of pregnancy pillow will prevent you from accidentally rolling over on your back or stomach and will also help you to be much more comfortable sleeping in a new position.
