Im still on the small side jill.....Lol. It does get uncomfortable sometimes like if I am having a contraction so I move.....But I still do it because I have always been a belly sleeper. I cant help it.....No other position is comfortable for me.

Sleepign on ur back causes the placenta to rest more on baby causing the placenta to get less blood flow :d

I'm 18 weeks and I sleep on my belly. I slept on my belly for my son until then end. Being that I didn't start showing until I was in my seventh month it wasn't uncomfortable for me.

I heard after the first trimester you are supposed to sleep on you left side (better circulation), and you are supposed to avoid crossing your legs, cuz that can cause the circulation to baby slow down.

Yep ur right lil momma.. I try to avoid sleepin on my back but I still do sometimes.. I would never sleep on my stomach tho anymore and im 21 weeks. My doctor told me to try to sleep on either side, particulary the left and avoid sleeping on your stomach after you are 12 weeks.
