sleeping on the bump

so the last few weeks i have been waking up on my side but leaning heavily on my bump.  to the point where there are marks from the sheet/pajama pants.  i am guessing this is not a big deal or my body would wake me up, right?  just looking for some reassurance for the neurotic in me!

    Your baby is in a pretty solid bubble of cushioning water. I wouldn't recommend belly flops, but on your side leaning towards your stomach on a non-hard surface should be fine

  • This happens to me all the time, so I sleep with a body pillow underneath my stomach. I also sleep with a pillow behind my back because I end up on my back a lot because my cat loves to sleep on my stomach.
  • ive been sleeping partially on my belly too. I wake up on my side/belly with my top leg so far over to the side it pulls me on too my belly. i think if it was a problem my body would wake me up too or atleast i hope so.

  • I've been almost on top of my body pillow the past couple of nights. Sleeping with the "leg hitch" has been really comfortable. 
  • I also love to sleep like that. It's the closest I've been to sleeping on my stomach (which is all I did before becoming pregnant) in weeks!

  • So I went to the dr yesterday and asked about this.  He said as long as I was comfortable and it wasn't hurting me, that the baby was just fine and it wasn't hurting anything.
