Calling all my fellow stomach sleepers! Tonie, Party of 5 3 kids; Florida 1003 posts

Help!

I am an avid stomach sleeper, but now at 16 weeks pregnant I'm having such a hard time getting off my damn stomach. :x I roll onto it in the middle of the night and wake up because it's hurting me.

Have any of you ever bought one of those pregnancy body pillows? I keep one of the small square pillows from the sofa on my bed and try to tuck that under my leg, but I push it away at some point, maybe because it is small.

I would love your suggestions! Thank you :)

i have a regular body pillow (much cheaper) and I snuggle into that and push it up against my tummy as much as I can so it feels like I am sleeping on my tummy

i went through a phase of using 3 pillows, one in front of me, one behind me, and one at my head... It really worked to keep me from rolling over AND it kept me comfy even on my side! Didn't leave any room for the hubby to cuddle, but I felt cuddled!

Your body will tell you when it's too much. I slept on my stomach with Jonas until I was about 32 weeks pregnant when I no longer could, my stomach sleeping kept getting modified haha then it just got all the way to side sleeping and was prescribed sleeping pills b/c i cant sleep anyway but my belly!

I saw in a magazine right before I had my son they sell a blow up mattress that you can put your belly in. I will have to find it for you!

i have a big stuffed animal duck. it works great. the head goes under my belly and the bigger body goes in my legs. i just flop my leg over that and it prevents me from completely rolling on my belly.
