  • You should sleep how you are comfortable for as long as it is comfortable. Your baby is very well protected, you are not going to squish him or her :) Your body will tell you when your baby is too big for you to lay on your stomach, because it will feel like you're lying with a rock under you. It will be so uncomfortable you will HAVE to sleep on your side. There is no "time" you should stop sleeping on your tummy because everyone is different. When it is uncomfortable, stop. That simple :)

  • whe you get a bump. idk, i found it uncomfortable to sleep on my stomach when i got a bump. i wanted to though...when i was like 7 months along (and huge, i might add) i jokingly considered ripping a hole in my mattress just big enough where my stomach would fit in there and i could get comfortable lol

  • When it is no longer comfortable. I am over 20 weeks and I still somewhat lay on my stomach.

  • my doc also said i could sleep on my stomach until it became uncomfortable. i'm 32 weeks and i still do it! it takes a lot of pillows plus my boppy to make it comfy, but it's worth it :)
