    Yes - You can sleep on your tummy. I slept on mine until I was 7/8 Months pregnant with Ky - Just had to put my knee practically up by my ears to make a dip for my belly! lol - I still sleep on my tummy now, although it is getting rather uncomfortable - They should create matresses with a hole in to put our bumps in!

    Its lying on your back your not supposed to do for very long periods.

    LMOA!!!!

    No I don't! - I neglect the things I need really as I'm too busy spending on Ky, bump and the house!

    I should get one though, if I don't spend it, Paul does!

    yea its fine if you can manage it, i always felt so uncomfortable!! rachie your invention sounds ideal !! the mattress with a hole (the polo mattress maybe?! lmao)
    I was always more comfortable on my back but would wake up and panic then turn on my side quickly!! i had a massive cushion under bump poor phil just about fitted in the bed !!

    KX, you shouldnt sleep on your back as the weight of the baby lies on the main artery etc so reduces blood flow. i think its only a concern in the later stages though?
