  • I slept on my stomach until I was a good 6 months or so, to where it just wasn't comfortable. You're not going to harm the baby at all.

  • I've seen this question several times and it baffles me, I slept on my stomach when I was prego with my son well into my 8th month and when I got prego with my daughter, I was an high impact aerobics instructor and I taught till I was again, into my 8th month. What the doctor said to us because my husband was freaking about me teaching when I got prego was "let her do what her body is use to, when it comes time not to, her body will tell her. Her body is going through enough changes right now that if we make her stop doing something it's use to doing, it will freak out on her and the last thing you want (to my husband) is a woman with raging hormones freaking out on you."
