I am 24 weeks and I am still sleeping on my stomach, it is usually the only way I can sleep. I start out asleep on my sides, but when i wake up I am on my stomach. does anyone know if this will hurt my baby?

farramh - 1142 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) I don't know how you can! As soon as I'm pregnant I'm very protective of my stomach. I guess as long as it doesn't hurt that would be okay, however late pregnancy I think I would be mindful not too. I always sleep with a pillow between my knees to correct posture and keep my hips aligned anyway.

kyliemarie - 1142 days ago Thanks guys. I couldn't remember how I slept when I was pregnant with my son.

vickiessecret - 1142 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) I agree it won't hurt your baby, with my first pregnancy, I was close to 20 weeks, I went to go lay down on my belly and I was like "oh wow" it felt like I had a basketball between me and the bed..lol. So it just felt uncomfortable to me, it won't hurt the baby, If it gets uncomfortable for you then you won't be able to do it :)
