Pregnant, sleep on left side?

Good day,

Is it true that a pregnant lady should sleep on her left side? I know one shouldn't lie on one's back too long.

If this is true abt sleeping on the left side, why is that?

Thnx :-) :-) :-)

As long as you do not lie flat on your back, it does not matter which side you lie on.

As far as I can recall it is because there is a better flow of blood (i.e. oxygen) to the baby... I think that you can also sleep on your right hand side but then you are lying on your own organs... a search on the net should provide you with sufficient info...
