    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    no it's that you want to sleep on your left side. if you sleep on your back you can cut off blood flow to the baby, there is a vein your back that can become compressed by the weight of the baby. they usually tell you in the hospital that it is better for you to lay on your side because of the oxygen/blood flow is better.
