    I was also wondering about this, I haven't been sleeping on my stomach since I found out I was pregnant just in case I harm the little dragon. I've been sleeping on my side, it just takes me a little longer to get to sleep xx

    your suppose to sleep on your left hand side as it helps with the blood flow, but I slept on my tummy until I got a bit of a bump. And my babies all fine girls. I tend to sleep on both my sides and swap all night my OH hates me lol x

    My consultant told me that the left side is the side I should try to sleep on but either side left or right is better than back or stomach

    As Carly said slep however you want, cos when your bump gets so big that you can't, you'll wish you slept on your front!!

    Baby has a nice big sack of fluid to keep it comfy, so you can't do anything to harm it

    It does no harm, and is fine to do until you are no longer confortable...yes some of the advice is to sleep on your left, but i doubt it makes that much difference. More important to make usre get comforatble and sleep well, cos you'll feel so much better for a good nights sleep (something i long for now)
