Sleeping on my left side

I am in my 2nd trimester. So i am making a conscious effort to sleep on my left side ( since its the recommended position) Initially i just used a bolster to help me, but i am aching so much that i decided to get one of those pregnancy pillow. But it is still not helping! I woke up in the middle of the night, having aches on the left side of my body. Especially my arms and my left pelvis area! Anyone experiencing the same problem? Any advices?

hi im also in my 2nd tri a ftm 😊 same issue as you, leg cramps pelvis aches etc moreover sleeping on my left is much more uncomfortable than on my right... I will try my best to sleep as long as possible on my left. when I cant take it any longer I'll just flip to my right side.
