    Default Silly Question - 13 weeks

    Hi Ladies,

    I am 13w + 4 days pregnant and I found myself asleep on belly this morning.

    As stupid as this sounds is this ok for the baby? I have always been a belly sleeper and woke up very worried as breasts and tummy were a little sore?

    Thanks

    it's fine. you'll know when it's time to stop as it'll become uncomfortable. I was still able to lay on my back until quite late in my pregnancy whereas I know people that couldn't lay on their backs past 20 weeks. everyone is different, let your body and what feels comfortable guide you.

    I'm a tummy sleeper too and what I've found helps is to lie on your side and put a small cushion just between your legs but so it rests just under your tummy too, so you still feel like you're lying on your tummy but there's a soft cushion there instead of a firm mattress and all your body weight. But as everyone says there shouldn't be any harm done!

    Another tummy sleeper here! I was worried about the same thing during pregnancy and actually asked this very question on here. It's fine. Most reassuring advice I got was to imagine a little pebble inside a blown up balloon... Unless there's a violent blow it's fine.
    I slept on my side /tummy until it was physically impossible to do so and had no problems.
