How do you usually sleep (back, side, belly)? Have you already had to alter your sleeping position?

I'm usually a back or belly sleeper, and I know it's still safe to sleep on my back this early, but I don't want to get into the habit of it. It's actually still sort of comfortable to sleep on my belly, but some nights it feels weird! I've been tossing and turning a LOT lately!!

I'm a side and belly sleeper. I read it's good to sleep on your left side and that's how I normally fall asleep, but I end up on my stomach and right side throughout the night. I toss and turn all the time.

I have been a tummy sleeper my whole life. I couldn't fall asleep unless I was on my stomach! But, my boobs hurt too bad now to do any more stomach sleeping! I have a body pillow that my husband got me a few weeks ago & I've been using that & sleeping on my side and it seems to work.

Ditto this. I started training myself to sleep on my side since I got my BFP. I have actually noticed the issues I've had with my neck reduced. It did take me a couple weeks to get used to sleeping in a different position.

I've always been a side sleeper and since I was pregnant with DD I got used to hugging a pillow. I'll have to get a big body pillow to put between my knees soon, and add another one under my belly and one behind my back. I'd get one of those pregnancy pillows, but they're super expensive and I don't like how most of them go under your head, too. I'm very picky about my head pillow.

I am a side sleeper, with a pillow inbetween my knees. But lately I have been falling asleep on my back because I know in a few short months I won't be able to anymore... the brain does some funny stuff lol

Im a side tummy sleeper most of the time though I have woke up on my back a few times recently. I think its hard to get comfortable sometimes these days or I get nervous knowing Im sharing my body now with someone else.
