Can you sleep on your back while being pregnant??

Right now I'm at the stage where I cannot lay on my left side nor my right side too long. It feels like my muscles tense up and they will not relax; but when I lay on my back the tension releases. Can pregnant women lay on their back??

    well not that I know of ...u can place a pillow behind u so u can relax and not be completely on ur back ...it helps ur baby breath cuz he can press on a nerve on ur back and it slows down his air
