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?

28 weeks pregnant with the same issues as well! Pregnancy pillow wasn't doing any help for me, still waking up with cramps or turning on my back in my sleep. Hubby took matters to his own hands, would sleep back to back so he make sure I stay on my side then will wake me up to switch sides of the bed so I can lay on another side, this way I get lesser cramps but tough on my hubs :/
