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?

      I sleep on my stomach for the most part, with the help of pillows of course with my big ol 36w bump. no problems here

          your baby will be fine, anything that is hurting the baby will wake you up. if it makes you feel any better i am 37 weeks and still wake up on my belly. i don’t think i am like that very long, it gets uncomfortable quick and wakes me up. my baby is still fine and kicking away. just make sure you move when you do feel discomfort.

            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.

                I am just over 31 weeks and I am still sleeping mainly on my stomach, just slightly turned to one side. Best sleeping position ever (other than flat on my tummy haha)

                    It will be impossible to sleep on your stomach when it can hurt your baby. Please enjoy it while you can. I feel uncomfortable sleeping on mine and I’m only 20wks! I’m jealous.

                      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 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 :)

                              I kept waking up mostly on my stomach up until a couple of weeks before I delivered (would wake up that way, slightly to the side). No problems with my son!
