  • stop when its not comfy anymore. which will probably be in the next 2-3 months. if its comfy for you than its not putting too much pressure on baby. docs recommend you sleep on your side b/c the blood flow is better that way, but sleeping on your tummy won't harm baby

  • I slept on my stomach throughout both my pregnancies. When I got a belly I just shoved a pillow under my knee and propped myself up some. Both my kids are perfectly healthy

  • I always hear that it's laying in your back that you should be concerned about. I've done that with both of my pregnancies, though (I usually wake up in the middle of the night and realize I'm on my back.) My daughter is perfectly fine and this pregnancy is going well, too. I think the thing to pay attention to the most is if you're in pain in a certain position. Then there's definitely something that isn't right.

  • Im 11 weeks and sleep on my stomach every night.... I have 2 other kids and Ive learned that you better enjoy sleeping on your belly while you can cause soon you wont be able to!

  • When I slept on my stomach durring my pregnancies I found that the baby would kick until I moved(to me an indication the baby didn't want me in that position). So my advice to you is that if you find the baby kicking and rolling around, change positions and if it stops then the baby isn't comfortable while your laying on your belly. But you're ok to sleep on belly without harming your baby!
