  • It's not bad...just really uncomfortable after you get far enough along. I used to line pillows up on the floor and leave a gap for my huge belly because I missed laying on my tummy so badly.

  • I don't think it hurts the baby that early. It's just that when you're farther along it's uncomfortable and almost impossible anway.

  • I have done it all the way through my previous pregnancies! In the 3rd tri I would kinda have to lay with my leg more under me or else it would feel I was laying on a basketball! It isnt going to hurt anything, it will just get uncomfortable eventually

  • it depends how far along you are...if you dont feel comfy when on your tummy you will not want to do it...until then I think its alright.
