    So I'm 13+4 and don't really have a "bump" yet, but I can feel it when I press on my stomach and when I lay on my stomach. Should I stop laying on my stomach now? Sometimes it feels crampy and then I'll switch positions but I usually fall asleep on my stomach...any ideas?

    I think if it feels crampy I'd roll onto my side. I do sort of a halfway on the tummy halfway on the side balancing with my knee up by my stomach lay, its comfortable enough. By morning I'm splayed out all over OH I use him as a prop if I wanna lay on my back so Im not fully on my back :)

    I am almost at 18 weeks. Until the last few days, I was still able to do the half on tummy, half on side bit. I think if it feels okay, you're fine. My body def. told me when to stop.

    I'm still half belly, half side.
    with my knee up a bit for support.
    sometimes I end up on my back, really, it's just how I'm most comfortable!

    you can sleep on your tummy until you no longer feel comfortable to do so.

    I have 2 pillows on top of each other and do the half tummy half side with my leg on the pillows. One pillow is not enough so I need two or my hips and legs hurt awful in the morning. My leg is up high enough to allow plenty of comfy room for my bump. Laying on my back make me crampy!

    I would say when your body tells you that you can't anymore. If I do now it hurts a lot! So you should know when it's time to stop

    I will half to try this half knee / side thing! I think I might do it already but :shrug: for the most part it doesn't hurt, I just feel kinda crampy after a while so I think it is my body telling me to not lay directly on it. Time to invest in more pillows I guess! Thanks for all the advice :flower:

    Honestly, I stop laying on my belly when it becomes uncomfortable. I already have a belly though so I have pretty much stopped.

    I stopped in first tri because it became uncomfortable for me. I'd stop when it's not comfortable for you any longer
