Sleeping on my tummy?!

I'm 21 weeks and I have a belly so sleeping on my stomach is out of the question but I am a tummy sleeper. I feel like I get no sleep at night now that I cant sleep on my tummy at all. I've tried the body pillow ideas and everything. Anyone else having this problem or have any advice?

  • I was the same way but got used to the body pillow and now wish I could go back to sleeping on my tummy, my body pillow is addictive!! Just keep with it, you will find a new way to sleep until after the baby is born.

  • Yes I was the same way its tough!! I couldn't wait to have the babies just so I could sleep on my stomach again. You won't be able to do that much longer. To be honest there is no comfortable way I was always shifting left to right side. GL.

  • I sleep like half on my side with my knee up to my chest a bet I find that helps me and makes me feel more comfy

  • I have the same problem. I can't sleep worth anything now that were not supposed to sleep on our backs either. It's a constant shift from left to right. Only 9 weeks and 6 weeks and ill have my sleeping positions back :p

  • I was that way and am that way now. I used the bodypillow thing too. It took some time to get used to, but it eventually got better. Also I used to alternate sides.
