When I was 1-3 months along it was the most comfortable to sleep any way I could get a good night`s sleep (morning,noon,& night sickness)....but as the baby grows and the sac the baby lives in expands, I switched to one side or the other with a leg half-bent with a pillow under the bent leg to equalize the height with the rest of my growing body....it`s not a good idea to put your full body weight on the growing fetus as it is "free-falling" in the amniotic fluid and stretches and flexes as it grows. The umbilical cord also needs the room to flow freely, as it is carrying nutrients and oxygen to the baby constantly....hope this helps My ob/gyn's advice is not to. In fact, after the 4th month she recommends sleeping on the left side or back with a bunch of pillows keeping you in a half-reclining position. The left side thing apparently has something to do with the way your baby gets its oxygen supply and the reclining position helps prevent heartburn/acid reflux. Good luck and good health to you all.

it normal to have a cold stomach during pregnancy

A personรข??s stomach should feel a little cold during pregnancy. When a womanรข??s stomach stretches during pregnancy, the blood vessels also stretch and become thin which leads to less warmth.

The stomach is the organ which is the primary digester of food. It does not grow during pregnancy.

Yes, your body will tell you when you can no longer sleep on your stomach, probably sometime around 16 weeks.

During pregnancy, the beat inside the stomach is typically the baby's heart beat. Babies have faster heartbeats normally than adults.

Your stomach will begin to get hard during your fifth month in pregnancy. Your belly gets hard when the skin stretches. This can cause markings so usea lot of lotion during this time.when your about three to four months

During pregnancy you feel movement in your stomach. You will feel small kicks from your baby. This can be painful.

Babies grow in the uterus, not the stomach. Otherwise they would be digested.

Yes, stomach cramps, headache etc., but remember, every pregnancy is different.

Anything that is strenous or requires you to lay on your stomach.

No! Sleeping on your back can result in backaches, hemorrhoids, decrease in circulation for you and your baby, low blood pressure, and digestive problems. The best position to sleep in during pregnancy is on your side.
