But I get such sore hips from sleeping on my sides that I just have to lie on my back, but I lie there totally freaking that I might fall asleep and stay on my back too long! Is anyone else having these worries/issues?
I wake up on my back sometimes and it always kinda scares me when I notice it. I just have to realize that the baby is in God's hands and it's not likely to be a huge problem and may be the reason I woke up. My hips have been really sore. My MW said I could put a flatish pillow under my back on one side to keep me at an angle and sorta sleep on my back. I try to remember to put something, even a wad of blankets, back there when I know I'll probably sleep a while. Then I don't have to scare myself when I wake up.

Any of them left handed? I'm really curious about this. My Mom noticed which of us were lefties when we were in the crib (when you still lay them on their tummies). We'd always migrate to the far side bc we were pushing with the dominant hand. That was the first 4 of us. The last 2 were always closer to her. Those two are the right handed ones.
