Sleep position

Anyone else already finding it crazy uncomfortable to sleep on your belly? I feel like there is a tennis ball in there and I have to get off of it. Annoying since it's my favorite way to sleep!

I usually try to sleep on my stomach as much as I can at the beginning because I know I won't be able to after a while. However this time around I'm already showing and I'm only 9 weeks and 1 day! So it's been uncomfortable for a few weeks now and have to lay with either my hand under my stomach or a pillow under it.

My husband just got back from the field (military) late friday night and he didn't believe me when I told him I was already showing (he was gone a month). When he saw me he was like "Yeah you're showing" ha ha.

Not yet, but I am dreading the day when it is uncomfortable for me to sleep on my stomach! I am already trying to get used to sleeping on my side b/c it takes a while for me to get used to it and actually be able to fall asleep on my side. Right now though, I think I could fall asleep standing up if I stayed still long enough! I am SO tired most of the time!

I am just getting to the point where I can not sleep on my stomach. I have been sleeping on my side with a pillow under my belly and between my legs. DH does not like having an extra pillow in the bed but I can not sleep without it.

I'm actually not much of a stomach sleeper anyway so I'm good Smile It's funny though because right now I know that soon I CANNOT sleep on my stomach so I find myself doing it more often just because I can ROFL

I am a MAJOR stomach sleeper so I am sleeping on my stomach as much as possible right now. However I do find myself wanting to sleep on my side more lately so it's "better" for baby. I dunno, it's more psychological at the moment. With DS though I did dread sleeping on my side because of my hip pain so I am definitely not looking forward to that!

I'm totally a back sleeper but and relishing the moments that I can still roll over and sleep on my stomach. Actually been doing it a lot lately even though its not my favorite.

I'm not there yet, and I'm dreading the day. I LOVE sleeping on my stomach and that was the hardest thing about being pregnant last time.

Its not uncomfortable for me to sleep on my stomach because of the baby, but because of my painful boobs! I wake up in the morning and my boobs feel like theyre on fire!
