  • At 26 weeks your getting to the point where things are starting to get smooshed by the baby. No laying on tummy now. The Right side may be more comfortable.

  • I am 35 weeks now and I haven't been able to sleep on my left or right side since I was 16 weeks. I have to sleep in a recliner on my back can't even turn to my sides without being completely uncomfortable. I haven't slept in bed for months not even with pregnancy pillows or being propped up. I have Polyhydramnios (high levels of amniotic fluid) and baby is very big too so it is basically like having twins. You shouldn't being sleeping on your tummy at this point anymore, try propping yourself up using pregnancy pillows or just any I pillows and if you have a recliner try to sleep in it. My doctor suggested this and it has made a world of a difference in how comfortable I am.

  • I woke up on my stomach and freaked out >.< So I called my ob and he said it hurts because I was putting pressure on my growing uterus.

  • I was always a tummy sleeper, so when it got to the point that it was uncomfortable I got a body pillow and it helps a lot!! It doesn't have to be a super expensive, maternity pillow either. I got mine from wal-mart for like 7 bucks :)
