By belly sleepers here? I am. When I was pregnant with Peter I refused to from the moment I found out I was pregnant. My last pregnancy (a miscarriage) I slept on my belly, because I figured it would get uncomfortable before I did any damage. This time I am on the fence. I know I didn't lose Anne Marie because u slept on my tummy, but u can't help but worry. But sometimes it's the only way I can get comfortable.

WDYT? Any belly sleepers continue to belly sleep? Any who have chose not to?

I am still kind of sleeping on my belly..its more of halfway belly sleeping. Its the only way I can get comfy at the moment and I would like to be as comfortable as possible before I get too big.

I would LOVE to still be sleeping on my stomach. I still try to but most of the time I can't simply because my boobs hurt too bad laying on them. There's nothing hArmful about sleeping on your belly though.

I try to but I usually end up on one of my sides due to the nausea and sore breasts.

I'm a belly sleeper and this is my 4th pregnancy. I will sleep on my stomach until it is absolutely impossible for me to any longer, usually about 14-16 weeks, then the day I have the baby I will be back on my stomach (with some heavy duty nursing pads) the very same night. In order for me to fall asleep I have to be on my stomach so not sleeping on my stomach for so long is REALLY hard on me!

I remember it feeling super weird that I could suddenly sleep on my belly after Pete was born. Lol

I'm a belly sleeper and I have to say ladies get a body pillow! I got one when preggers with my 2nd child and I was so much more comfortable during sleeping even huge into the 3rd Tri.

I'm a back sleeper so I'm going to miss that when I start getting bigger. I hate the sore arms and shoulders you get when sleeping on your side!

I slept on my belly through the entire pregnancy with both of my boys. I don't get very big and the baby never let me know he was uncomfortable. It's probably pretty uncommon to be able to so late. But i did have anterior placentas, so they were already kinda padded in there. But I don't think it causes any harm. I have never attributed my losses to that. But it's hard wih losses to feel comfortable with "normal" activities "just in case" they contributed. So I get it.

I hadn't slept with my body pillow in years until I got pregnant with DD. I freaking love that pillow. I took it to the hospital with me and still sleep with it. I'm mostly a left side with my right leg over the body pillow sleeper so I should be fine until we get to the point where you just aren't comfortable no matter what you do.

I sleep on my tummy sometimes, and I'm able to until around 12 weeks or so.

I'm a flopper. I turn all the time in my sleep. Side to side, belly to back. Avoiding belly sleeping right now because my breasts can't take it. Way too sore.
