Is your belly effecting your sleep yet?
If so have you had to use any extra pillows or a pregnancy pillow yet?

yes it is. however, pillows just seem to add more bulk and I end up throwing them off the bed. I don't like feeling restricted and pillows get in the way.

Heck yes! It's affecting everything. Lol getting up n down from the floor or couch is no fun too.

In try to body pillow but with a toddler in and out of our bed I usually say screw t and go lay on the couch and watch tv until I fall asleep. Every night midnight to 3 am, I'm awake.

Sucks big time !!

yeah I have to heave myself over 3 or 4 times a night, I start out with a pillow between my knees but it ends up anywhere during the night. Sometimes I wake up on my stomach or back, and my belly is really sore and I get scared but so far Liam seems to be doing okay.

Yes, I prop a pillow under my tum and have to move it bc I am a natural side sleepr and switch sides all throughout the night.
My pregnancy pillow never seemed to help THAT much- but i am sure it will as i get bigger.
But yeah, tummy is affectign EVERYTHING- I had trouble getting out of the tub last night!

For sure!! I can't seem to get really comfortable no matter how many pillows or which position I sleep in. The last few night I have been sleeping propped up. When I do sleep on my side my arm usually falls asleep and it wakes me up!

There are times when it does, I have to be careful how i lay on my arm, or it squishes baby into my stomach oddly and aches. But I'm still sleeping in my usual half-belly position and not using any pillows yet. I am determined to wait as long as possible before having to move fully to my side.

Though yeah, it's making me grunt a lot when I switch sides, lol. Stomach muscles aren't what they once were.

I'm sleeping with a pillow between my legs and one under my tummy. They seem to be helping me get some sleep, if only my DD would get through her 2 year molars.

Yes. I can't sleep on my back, and my hips are killing me from having to rest so much. I have a feather body pillow and a king sized down pillow as well. I invest bigtime in my pillows, haha! Id love to have a third.

We have a memory foam topper and it seems to give enough so that I am ok (I am a tummy/side sleeper). But when I was at my parents all last week I sleep in the guest bed and its hard as a rock and I was not able to get comphy.

Belly not really getting in the way but the extra weight makes my hips hurt when I lay on my side, so that's no fun.

I'm still sleeping okay...it's GETTING to sleep that has become a problem. Baby is most active right when I'm trying to go to bed and kicks and kicks and rolls and punches. O_o
I have to wait for baby to chill before I can get any shut eye.

Has been for a long time. I'm a tummy sleeper, and that has been out for a while! I use a regular body pillow to help me get comfortable on my sides....but no matter what it just takes getting used to and by the time I get used to it I've grown again and have to adjust!

Yeah its starting to make it harder to sleep. I cant sleep on my back anymore...if I do I wake up in the middle of the night in a panic...like I cant get enough air into my body.
I do sometimes wake up on my stomach still just with a leg bent. Its the most comfortable postition right now.
