Ask and you shall receive!
Tennis legend Serena Williams tweeted out a request for advice about her pregnancy.
On Tuesday, Serena tweeted, “Any tips on how to turn over at night? I’m having trouble from going from my left….to my right….to my left side.”
She got lost of great feedback!
Lay on your left side and put a pillow between your legs. I only lay on my left side it's best for the baby. I believe it's blood flow.

Roll on your back, Mama…then roll right/then back/ then left. You have to sing the lyrics to the Tootsie Roll! I don't make the rules.

She can consider our fave advice from Parenting.com:
Maternity bands support a growing belly. Wearing one during the day takes stress off your back, groin, and middle so you’re less achy at bedtime.
Use Extra Pillows
To ease pressure on your hips when trying to sleep on your side, place a body pillow between your legs.
Watch Your Diet
Eat small, mild meals to prevent fullness and the pain of reflux. Pass on the caffeine — it can make you pee.
Williams and her fiancé Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian are expecting their first child together later this year.
