  • Stopped sleeping on my tummy right away, and never stopped having sex. I do think the baby did weird stuff when i orgasmed though, thought it might be in my head lol

  • we had sex up until 2 night before labor started.
    if you're comfortable sleeping on your stomach, then keep on sleeping that way. i stopped sleeping on my stomach when it was uncomfortable.

  • They usually say to stop sleeping on stomach around 15-20 weeks because it can restrict blood flow. It is best to lay on your left side but that was never comfortable for me. I never stopped having sex but it def slowed down.

  • I stopped sleeping on my stomach when I found out I was pregnant, and I have always had sex during my pregnancies unless my doctor said otherwise.. which happened due to preterm labor. (The sex didn't cause preterm labor.. just wanted to clarify)

  • I stopped sleeping on my stomach when it became uncomfortable to do so. There's no rule about tummy sleeping, just back sleeping.

    I stopped having sex a few weeks before the end of my pregnancy because it was just too difficult to figure out comfortable positions. The hardness you're feeling in your stomach is probably Braxton-Hicks contractions stimulated by the orgasm. Very normal and nothing to worry about in a healthy pregnancy. :)
