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?

I have been sleeping perched up 3 pillows since 1st trimester, to avoid heartburn and also not to feel cramps and halfway thru the night I wil find myself sliding down to my left and i wil sleep comfortably til morning. Hopefully u find ur comfort soon.. Cos as much as I want to sleep normally too, I guess this is what we have to endure for a bit more.
