  • When it gets uncomfortable. If it doesn't bother you it's fine. You aren't going to squish the baby.

  • Is this your first pregnancy? If so, trust me, you'll know. There comes a time in your pregnancy when it's very uncomfortable and pretty much impossible.

  • I did until around 8 months, then I could no longer get the pillows around me to be comfortable. I just about cut a hole in the bed so that my belly would fit in it, LOL

  • When you are no longer comfortable. With Ally (born Jan '05) I didn't stop til about 4/5 months because it was my first and I really didn't feel uncomfortable until then. With Gabby (born Jan '08) I stopped around 4 months and with this one (due May 9th) I haven't be able to lay on my stomach since I was 8 weeks!
