  • yeah its totally normal. will get even more uncomfortable as you get bigger. i'm 38 weeks and i sleep as close to on my stomach as possible, which is just a modified side sleep lol

  • we're not suposed to be laying on our belly's period after 12 wks..but of course we're all gonna still do it..i get the same pains and its obviously a sign that we shouldn't be doing it anymore!! try a preggo pillow and lay on your side. layin on my tummy is my fav position so i know how hard it is not to lay that way.
