  • Yes. It won't hurt the baby. You're fine.

  • Yes, that little baby is very well cushioned in your belly! But it won't be long before it will become very uncomforable!

  • Yes. The baby is really protected in there. I layed on my tummy until I couldn't anymore. I really pushed it too because I didn't sleep any other way. Soon it'll get uncomfortable and u'll stop but until then it's fine.

  • I was always told to lay on your left side. It helps circulation and is better for the baby. I am not sure if this is accurate but this is what I was told.

  • By the time you shouldnt lay on your stomach anymore, you wont want to lay on your stomach anymore. It will make you want to puke lol

  • Yes it is fine. I used to sleep on my belly further along in the pregnancy. As long as you are still comfortable, it will be fine. :)
