Lying On Your Tummy Whilst Pregnant

Is it dangerous to lye on your tummy whilst you are pregnant? I am 17 weeks pregnant. I used to find this position really comfy before I was pregnant but have not tried it since becoming pregnant. Silly question but what do you all think?

i used to do it and if you put your knee up beside you it kind of props you up...i found it very comfortable(it was one of the few ways i could sleep!)

As far as I know you can sleep any way you like as long as it's compfortable. Some will caution against sleeping flat on your back because it may put pressure on a major artery called the vena cava(?) but even if this is the case you will know it before it harms either you or the baby. You're supposed to feel nauseous if you are. Be comfortable now while you can!

My tummy was my only good sleeping position and now well lets just add that to my poo poo from pregnancy. Doesn't it feel like you are laying on a ball???? I try and try but I feel like there is a volleyball where the baby is. By the way I am 19 weeks and barely showing.

tara~ You can still get ma__sages, just ask for the maternity table. (it has a cut out for your belly)

oops...I meant stop lying on my stomatch :o) My message therapist said he has a maternity table on order, but if it doesn't arrive on time I'd have to lye on my side for the messages. Hopefully the table will be in by then :o)
