Anyone else still sleeping on their stomach??

I'm a tummy sleeper, always have been. Even my mom said when I was a baby that is the only way she could get me to sleep.
I can't remember with my other pregnancies when I couldn't sleep on my stomach anymore. Just a couple of days ago I was on my stomach and I felt weird, it just didn't feel right. This is the part of pregnancy I hate, the 7 months of flipping from side to side and back again trying to get comfortable.
For now I'm still on my stomach but more of a side stomach so I'm not right on it.

Is that bad, should I not be anywhere near my stomach at all??

Re: Anyone else still sleeping on their stomach??

I always have to be off my stomach during those first bloated and feeling pregnant weeks. Then I get to roll back on it for a few weeks. Right now I am in the getting uncomfortable and this time it really is the baby stage! I shove my second pillow under my hip to raise it a bit and take some pressure off my tummy.

We have a sleep number bed and soon I will release some air and soften it up a bit so I can go a bit longer! I don't think there is anything wrong with sleeping on your stomach as long as you can! It is one of the sides that is supposed to be worse because of physical logistics with blood flow.... i think..... LOL

I use to but in the last couple of weeks it's become uncomfortable. I sleep with a pillow in between my legs while on my side now. Until DH comes to bed then I jut drape all over him lol

I try... but can't do it. I wake up soooooo sore. But laying on my side feels like there isn't enough tummy support. The wedge pillow isn't thick enough to support my belly just yet. So I just toss & turn all night. It sucks!

I still sleep on my tummy. I have been wondering if it is bad for the baby but its not too uncomfortable yet. I hate trying to sleep on my side it makes my hips hurt but I know it is coming soon

I'm still able too, however, I find that nursing my 14 month old and having her lay on my belly is very uncomfortable!

Re: Anyone else still sleeping on their stomach??

I still sleep on my stomach. I wasn't able to for a few weeks because of being bloated and morning sickness, but I can now. With DS I did it until about 20ish weeks, then I needed a body pillow to sleep partially on my stomach/side. With DD it was like 13ish weeks, but I started showing way early with her and was never really able to sleep on my stomach after that even with the pillow.

I still do, and will until the giant belly is in the way. I made it to about 26 weeks with DD. I didn't have any problems, and DD seemed fine with it!

lol this reminded me, for the first 15-30 minutes my kids would hit/kick the bed. Funniest thing ever. I'd roll over and then make DH talk to me forever while they did it until I could go to sleep.

I do some...but it's more like side-stomach now while hugging a pillow than just straight stomach.
