Laying on your stomach/ right or left side

Hello Ladies! Well this is my first time around riding the pregnancy train and I could'nt more excited! I am 7 weeks and counting and I wanted to know is it okay to still lay on your stomach? or should I be laying on my left/ right side?

Well I am 6 weeks and when prego with DS. OB told me I could lay however I wanted to..however at around 10 weeks laying on my stomach was out of the question...very uncomfortable ..he also mentioned later...25weeks or'll notice your heart beating harder..from all of the work your body is doing to support you and give it a break lay on your left side since it will be easier on your heart with the blood flow. Mine would flutter like crazy but 10 minutes or so of laying on my left side would calm it down.

Lay however you are comfortable. As you get bigger and obviously can't sleep on your stomach... left sided sleeping is recommended. It encourages better blood flow for your little one!!! I have a huge body pillow that I plan on using and it worked great with my first. It kept me positioned since I am a habitual stomach and back sleeper which are both "no no's" as your belly expands! Good Luck!
