Just A Quick Question

I am 6 weeks pg with my 2nd child and just have a couple questions. First, when should I stop sleeping on my back or stomach? I dont remember when I stopped with my first. Second, Is it true that you show earlier after your first? I was almost 7 months before I really started to show with my first.

As far as sleeping goes..do what feels comfortable. I know many women who didn't show until late in the pregnancy with their first but with their 2nd & so on they showed very early.

I just read in some pregnancy information I got from the doctor, that in the 2nd and 3rd trimester, you should not lie on your back because it cuts off oxygen to the uterus. So you have a few more weeks left to enjoy lying on your back. You may want to try getting some extra pillows and build a raised surface and raising yourself up, giving your back lots of support, because I know lying on your side starts to take its toll on your hips after a while. I think you'll realize by yourself when lying on your stomach becomes uncomfortable, especially when the uterus rises and you can feel your uterus from the outside.

Thats what I figured, that I would be able to feel it, but was unsure. Thanks
