    I was worried about this last time but my MW said how well protected they are in there, so don't worry until you get a big bump!

    I would say its okay. You will feel uncomfy soon and wont want to. Im a tummy sleeper and Im enjoying my last few weeks of being able to.

    It's fine to sleep on your tummy but it will probably be too uncomfortable to do once you start getting a bump. You arn't meant to sleep on your back though and the recommended sleep position is to lay on your left side. I have posted a link :D

    I used to wake up some mornings and I would be lying almost on my tummy kinda leaning on my bump- even at 35 weeks :?

    Yep its fine to lie on your tummy.
    I am still lying on my tummy although i now have one leg bent to the side so im not completely flat as i would be usually as bump is getting in the way.

    So my body has naturally changed position slightly as my bump is growing and im now more on my side than on my tummy.

    Im a tummy sleeper but I just cant do it now :( Baby doesnt like anything other than a hand on my tummy else he/she goes mad in there! If I rest a cup, plate or book etc on my bump the kicking starts or if I lay slightly on my tummy too :rotfl: It doesnt hurt but keeps me awake :)

    Them V shaped pillows are good for resting your bump on, I used to lay on my side and tuck one half between my legs and the other half under my bump. Then when Isaac was born I used it to lay him on while I fed him and now I use it in bed when I'm reading my book :wink:

    I didn't lay on my front atall because my boobs was really really sore. Plus I thought I was showing from 5 weeks :rotfl:
