    I tried to sleep on my tummy my whole pregnancies [2]. I used a banana pillow around my bump, with extra pillows for support. If it got uncomfortable for me, I just moved to my side. I love those big body pillows. It's completely safe - it's just a matter of comfort.

    Until its uncomfortable. Im not looking forward to this part. I used to make a giant donut out of pillows just so i could lay on my tummy for 5min.

    With DS1 I was able to sleep on my stomach with a pillow until I was in labour.

    With DS2, I stopped much earlier because it wasn't comfortable.

    Same as PP for me I slept on my belly for ages when I was pregnant with my daughter. As soon as it got uncomfortable I moved to my side since it was also getting uncomfortable to sleep on my back
    This pregnancy I feel a bit uncomfortable directly on my tummy, but up a bit with pillows is fine. I love my maternity pillow, although so does DH. I keep telling him its not a paternity pillow but he always ends up with it anyway
