    ...sleeping on my belly :oooo: i can drop to sleep quite easily on my left or right side, but after sleeping that way for a good few hours, my hips ache and i cannot for the life of me get comfy, constantly tossing and turning for the rest of the night :wall2: only another 19 more weeks to go hehe!!

    Anyone else struggling with not being able to lie on their tummy?

    Oooh that could be a good idea, i'm thinking it probably is the ever growing bump putting more of a strain on other body parts when i'm laid down, i got the same ache when pregnant with my DD! Gonna nick DD's buzzy bee pillow tonight and see if that makes any difference :) thanks for the advice xx

    i REALLY miss this too! :sad: dont think i have had a proper sleep since i found out i was expecting! i was lying on my right side every night as this was the 2nd best thing to my stomach & now have a really sore right hip!

    only thing that helps is cuddling into a pillow!

    hope you get a better sleep soon! :nap:xx

    I hate not being able to sleep on my belly, started getting really uncomfortable when I accidentally roll over. My sister gave me a massive pregnancy pillow so I might have to try that out tonight xx

    I miss sleeping on tummy on so much. I usually end up most comfy sort of half tummy, half side with a wedge either between my legs or under top leg which would then be in front of my body. Sounds really weird when I type it like that. I told DH I need to cut hole in mattress to allow room for my bump and me to have proper nights sleep. I dread to look in the mirror these days to see how black I am under eyes from broken sleep lol

    I hardly have a bump but avoided sleeping on my tum initially because I was scared of squishing bubs - silly I know considering it was the size of a kidney bean but now I find it really really uncomfortable when I accidently go on my front. Soooo annoying because that is the BEST sleeping position! xx
