I've never been a stomach sleeper, I've always rotated sides, and mostly back. Sometimes stomach. I wouldn't worry too much at this point in your preg, but definitely trying to get used to sleeping only on your side takes adjusting!! I hate that I cannot sleep on my back! (I am 35wks now), but still do wake up on my back almost every night!! I know that really no harm can come to my little one, unless I am on my back for hours and hours. Oddly, I woke up almost completely on my stomach the other week! That was weird and it took me a few sleepy seconds to realize why I felt so weird! lol
Get a body pillow that you can hug and place between your knees when lying on your side, and place another pillow (this may or may not require you to kick your other half out of the bed! lol) behind your back to prevent you from rolling over completely. Honestly, the more pillows I have around me that I can wedge myself into, the better! Especially as I have gotten bigger and bigger!
I have always been a stomach sleeper. When I was pregnant I got one of those body pillows and I would prop myself up so I wasn't laying flat on my stomach. With the pillow under my shoulder and hip allowed me to be comfortable and still kinda sleep on my stomach. The bigger my belly grew the better I was able to sleep on my side. I now sleep the same way so I don't squish my breast or leak milk all over. Good luck!
Pillows, pillows, pillows! I create a little cocoon for myself-pillow between legs, pillow to snuggle in the front and one or two behind my back that I recline against. I am going to invest in a body pillow once I get more of a baby bump, because it really helped with my last pregnancy. Hope this helps!! :-)
