I LOVE laying on my stomach, to read, be on the computer, I HATE desks/tables... i'm always on the floor if I have any desk work to do.

WHEN in pregnancy did you stop laying on your stomach? I know right now it's fine since it's so early, but when does it get uncomfortable/impossible?

I'm approaching 15 weeks. I can't really do it at this point without arranging pillows to ease the pressure. Well, in truth I can, I guess; it just doesn't feel good.

When it gets uncomfortable. I can still lay on my stomach, but if I sleep like that I'm up to pee a lot because of the pressure on my bladder. You may eventually find yourself putting a bit more weight on one hip to take pressure of your stomach.

With my 1st I was able to sleep on my stomach until about 32 weeks before it became impossible. With my 2nd I never really got a belly and was able to sleep and lie on my belly up until the day I was induced.

I always have until I start feeling uncomfortable. I think that was around 15-16 weeks with Dd.

It feels a little uncomfortable now, but it also makes my stomach feel better with all the nausea and stomach cramps, so I still do it a lot.

I've already stopped. I'm not showing yet but I can feel my uterus when I lay on my stomach. My breathing gets harder. It may have something to do with my number of times pregnant.

I'm starting to feel that way already, at 14 weeks. You could get a preggo body pillow for your lounging and stick your tummy through - that may be even more comfortable than your regular way!

36 weeks and I didn't get any bigger the last 2 weeks. It was nuts. Especially because I was so huge with my 1st. And I'm only 5'5...so not like baby had a ton of room to hide.

I occasionally find myself sleeping kind of on my stomach. I try not to but sometimes in the middle of the night I end up going there but a little on the side too.

And isn't it crazy how occasionally someone won't get a belly even though they had a huge one previously!!! I don't think I will be that lucky this time as I already look bigger than that! I'll post a belly pic someday soon.

I will still lay on my belly now, but tend to roll over to my side in my sleep. I have a preggo pillow too that I can prop a leg up on when I get bigger.

Laying directly on my stomach has been bothering me. I think I need to start sleeping on just my side.

I actually quit stomach sleeping after I was pregnant with my first- I just got out of the habit. But since I got pregnant again, I've flipped back to my stomach more! (Weird) It's starting to get a little uncomfortable because I feel like maybe my uterus is a little tender? I'll keep doing it until it's uncomfortable..but I sorta belly sleep/prop one of my sides onto a pillow so it takes some of the pressure off.

That is unbelievable - you probably fit into your regular clothes the entire time!!! By the way, I'm bigger than that right now! lol
