I'm a stomach sleeper. I wonder how much longer I'll be able to do that.

What about you guys?

I sleep on my side. I am sleeping well other than having to pee every two minutes.

I typically sleep on my right side. I've been trying to get used to sleeping on my left but it's not easy to adjust to it. I've been taking advantage of still being able to sleep on my back while I still can!

I sleep directly on my back. It is a hard habit to break even while pregnant. I used to wake up with I was pregnant with my DD and my back was SO SORE. Like I couldn't move for ten minutes. I am thinking about investing in one of those body pillows and trying to sleep on my side.

I sleep on my left side. Lately I haven't been sleeping that well. I don't get up to pee, but I toss and turn.

I am a tummy sleeper but can get used to sleeping on my side. I haven't been sleeping well the past few weeks--my brain just seems to be on overdrive.

I sleep on my side usually but sometimes on my back. I haven't been able to sleep on my tummy since I was pregnant last time... and then my belly got too big, and even after Nova was born my boobs were too big/full and would get sore xD

Mostly side sleeper but also sleep on tummy and back. My hips are already starting to get a little sore sometimes if I don't move positions enough. Toward the end of pregnancy I remember my hips would hurt so bad while laying in bed.

I'm mostly a side sleeper, but sometimes I lay on my stomach to fall asleep. I bought a boppy body pillow and absolutely love it! It helps me stay on my side at night.
Everything I read online says at about 20 weeks we shouldn't sleep on our backs or stomachs.

I'm a stomach sleeper. I try to sleep more on my sides, but my hips hurt like crazy when I do. I kind of compromise by putting a pillow under my stomach, so I'm slanted and not flat on my stomach. I figure that's better than nothing! I already sleep surrounded by pillows so I can flip from side to side easily! I've considered a body pillow, but not sure how easy it would be to flip it from one side to the other.

I'm a belly sleeper too... I've been tossing and turning like crazy lately. NO FUN!

I'm a side or back sleeper. There is no way I could lay on my tummy without throwing up right now! I got one of those huge U shaped pg pillows. I sleep in a nest and can easily turn over. Its a little tricky to get out of because my DH needs to sleep on the outside so he can get to work without crawling over me.

I'm a tosser and turner. I usually end up on my left side though because that's the position I have my body pillow set for me to lay, but I can only lay on my back for a few minutes then it becomes uncomfortable and I've always had back problems so it's the same with that. Idk what I'm going to do when DH comes back and we, as in my pillow and I, have to share the bed again
