22No Stomach Sleeping

Just about everything in a woman's daily life changes when she gets pregnant — in the second trimester, she even has to change how she sleeps. In the first 12 weeks, the baby is so tiny that the mom's sleep position doesn't matter, but pretty soon the fetus gets so

big that sleeping on the stomach will squish it.
