In this stage of pregnancy, changing position of the growing baby is quite normal and you have nothing to worry.

To avoid premature birth, you sleep in left lateral position, take adequate bed rest in divided time (8-10 hrs at least), avoid all kind of heavy works, do not douching vagina or insert tampon which may cause infection, avoid sexual intercourse also, take healthy diet with prescribed iron/ calcium/ vitamin tabs and do periodic check up for assessment of the baby well being.

All the best.
