  • You won't hurt the baby, but as you grown it will be uncomfortable to do so.

  • i was told you can sleep on your stomach until it starts to hurt

  • As long as you are comfortable, you're fine. But you may want to start trying to sleep in another position so you can get used to sleeping on your side before you need to!

  • As long as you are comfortable, then you are fine. It is not recommended though because it can actually hinder the blood flow in your body. It is recommended to sleep on your left side. The best way to prevent yourself from rolling is to put a pillow in front of you.

  • I had an old fashioned water bed and that was wonderful because I was able to sleep on my stomach until the last week of pregnancy.

  • I slept on my belly with all 4 pregnancies until it became uncomfortable. Then i slept mostly on my sides.
