Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Congrats!  It's absolutely safe for you to sleep on your stomach!  Enjoy that tummy time while you can because once your uterus  moves up into your abdomen, it will be uncomfortable.  I am experiencing this now (14 weeks) :)
I am over 36 weeks.. I still sleep on the side of my stomach.. (they recommend sleeping on your side this late in pregnancy) I wake up quite often and am kinda on the side of my tummy though... You will get to the point where you can't lay flat on your stomach - I use lots of pillows to prop myself up and make myself comfortable. :)
I'm 9 weeks and all i want to do is sleep on my stomach is the only comfortable way to sleep for me, i think is okay until your belly starts to grow and you can't do it anymore... congrats :)
Im also 9 weeks as of tomorrow and i try to sleep on my stomach, but my growing tummy is making it harder, so i sleep on the side of my tummy.. kinda... But yeah its safe dont worry about!! I have heard that if you sleep on your left side you bring more blood to the baby, but im not sure if thats true..
