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.
 

Is it ok to sleep on your stomach at 5 months?

I wouldn't sleep on my stomach at all.  But at 5 months your belly is getting bigger and the weight of your body can press on everything in there including the baby.  I would lay on my left side it is the recommended sleeping position.  It puts less strain on the baby and on your organs in your body.
I asked my doctor the same question and she said if I could that the stomach was ok.
Well i TRY to sleep on my stomach but it only last for  about 2min
