How far along were you when you realized you couldnt sleep on your stomach anymore? What am I to do?

Prior to being pregnant, I have always slept on my stomach. Now I try my hardest to staay on my sides, but at some point through the night I wake to being uncomfortable on my stomach.

  • i would sleep on like my stomach/side. Not totally on my stomach but not on my side either. I would put my leg on my husband so it made it feel like i was on my stomach but on my side alittle too. You can also do this with a body pillow. Good luck! I know its a big adjustment! How many weeks are you?

  • I was a stomach sleeper before I got pregnant too. I slept on my belly until I literally couldn't anymore..even after4 or 5 months I kept on. I would even just end up on my stomach without realizing. It's difficult to sleep another way I understand..

  • Honestly at 12 weeks it became uncomfortable. Now I am 18 weeks and I still lay on my stomach but only for a few minutes. I can never fall asleep like that anymore.

  • I never slept on my stomach, I've always slept on my side. So no change for me.
