  • It's only going to get worse before it gets better, I'm afraid =]

    I slept on my stomach until I was about sixteen or seventeen weeks...then it just got annoying and I stopped, plus I knew it couldn't be too good for the baby. BUT! I'm now 30 weeks and my baby is perfectly healthy =D

  • Yup, and in a few months the ONLY position you'll be able to sleep in is on your left side. Then the baby comes and sleep is even more of a rare commodity. But it's not all bad! It's not neccessarily UNsafe to sleep on your tummy. (Atleast not that I've heard) I was never uncomfortable on my tummy until about 20 weeks.

  • There is this pillow that a friend of mine bought from Toy'r'Us and she was able to sleep on her stomach her whole pregnancy. She pretty much just made a hole in the center of the pillow for her belly and she was out like a light. Not sure what it was called but was definately from toy's r us
