  • yes it is. there isn't harm from tummy sleeping, but it wont be comfortable the entire pregnancy lol. I haven't been able to sleep on my tummy since 15 weeks.

  • i am 19 weeks and still sleeping on my tummy... I have been having back pains so my tummy is only way comfortable sometimes. I do have one leg positioned so that it holds up one side of my belly in order to not squish it...

  • You shouldn't lie flat on your back after 16 weeks because the weight of the uterus can put pressure on the blood vessel that carries blood back to your heart from your lower body. other than that, the only restriction is your comfort. So yes, if you're still comfortable doing so.
