im scared to sleep on my tummy. I sleep on my side (the recommend left side but I have a left pelvic kidney) so i sleep on my right side with a big body pillow. Barely enough room in the bed for DH already lol
I'm a tummy sleeper and have a really hard time falling asleep if I'm not on my tummy. So if I lay on my tummy, but put my leg up and to the side a bit, it lifts my belly just enough that I don't have to worry about squishing my bean.
I am normally a tummy sleeper but it puts a lot of pressure on my tummy right now. I can not seem to get comfortable at all right now. I try to sleep on my side but my side ends up hurting and I end up on my back but I do not want to start that considering I am only about a week from not being allowed to sleep on my back.
At one of my appointments I was told that I should stop sleeping on my tummy and back around the second trimester. That might be a little early though. I have heard different things.
i have a ginat body pillow and with my last pregnancy it REALLY helped. I propped my big ole belly up on it and then put my arms around it and hugged it. It also helped when my hips felt like they were breaking.
I love sleeping on my tummy (#1) favorite and then my back (#2) favorite so for awhile I was trying to get all the tummy and back sleeping in that I could. lol
But now I'm trying to teach myself to start laying on my side instead. If I lay on my back I prop a pillow under one hip so that I'm not flat on my back, but on more of an angle so it's safer. I still find myself occasionally waking up flat on my back so I have about another month to train myself not to.
Honestly, my least favorite thing about pregnancy is sleeping positions. Last time once I could no longer sleep on my back of stomach I slept horribly for the rest of the entire pregnancy. I HATE sleeping on my side. We do have a better mattress this time around so I'm hoping it helps.
