Could I hurt the baby?

I still sleepon my stomach. I find it comfortable until early morning like in the last 30 minutes of sleep before getting up for the day and then it becomes uncomfortable and makes me feel queezy and crampy. I wake up this way so I don't always mean to, but there also time I mean to. I try to prop my leg close to my chest to keep some weight off as well as pillows under mylegs or inbetween, but when you need to toss and turn then that doesn't accomodate you so well. Can this be damaging at this stage of the game. I am 15 weeks 2days. I know it is bad to do this when you're further along, but what about now?

Re: Could I hurt the baby?

I really don't think it matters now. I think when it actually matters is in your 3rd trimester and then you won't be able to any way.

I am a firm believer that your body and you baby will let you know when you are doing something not right. If it is still comfortable then it must still be OK.

Re: Could I hurt the baby?

Hey Marie,

I did some research and I found your baby doesn't get hurt if you lie on your stomach. The baby is in a big enough sac that they are not affected. It may cause pain to you later on like neck or back pain, but the baby is fine. Also I read that you can use a swimming device - like the ring children use - for sleeping on your stomach. Of course it is best you lay on your side for your own health and in the last trimester for blood flow for the baby.

I agree with Kelly if your body isn't telling you it's not o.k. then you should be fine.

By the way, you get to hear your baby's <IMG SRC=""> beat today, don't you?

Glad to hear your cough is better!! <IMG SRC="">

God Bless,
Angel <IMG SRC="">

My third actually, but never get tired of hearing that sound. Your first baby sets the tone for the way you feel towards so many things for the rest of your life.
