So lately I've had a hard time sleeping for some reason and can't seem to get comfortable - the way I'm most comfortable is when I'm laying on my stomach but I've tried not too do it because it worries me - I honestly think I'm going to smoosh baby. At this point do you think its ok to be sleeping on my stomach?? Sometimes I just wake up and find myself that way -- just wondering!

I end up on my back sometimes and that is a no no in late pregnancy but when you are asleep what can you do? I just roll back to my side if I catch it.

As for tummy sleeping it won't be comfortable for much longer. I don't think it causes any problems, but as soon as your body tells you it is uncomfortable then it is time to switch. Your body usually knows best.

I was a tummy sleeper until I got pregnant with my first. Now I never sleep on my tummy - 5 years later! Funny how you change.

I slept on my tummy at the beginning of this pregnancy... it was most comfy and I ended up there w/out meaning to... but it's definitely impossible now

Now I keep finding myself on my back... ugh.

I sleep with a body pillow when pregnant (DH hates it!) and it keeps me comfortably on my side. Great support between bbs, under tummy, and between knees. In fact, it takes enough pressure off my bladder that I can sleep for 5-6 hour stretches at night, instead of less than 2 hours at a time.

I was a tummy sleeper before and now it's just plain uncomfortable. I say enjoy your tummy sleep while you can, your body will let you know when it's time to switch to your side. I also wake up a lot on my back. I read somewhere that your body will wake you up if you are sleeping on your back and interrupting blood flow. I dont know how true that it.

I had one of those in my first pregnancy. My husband named it Phil because it was like sleeping with another person in our bed

This was a concern of mine when I was first pregnant, I asked my Doctor and he said that its not a big concern until you are around 20 weeks. He said that sleeping on your left side is best after that point but if you wake up in a different position (back,stomach) its not going to harm you.

LOL Susan you had me dying laughing - I was wondering too where my DH is supposed to sleep if I start piling all these pillows into my bed!
